    My goal(s) for 2018: To learn some new songs. I also want to learn Carter-style picking, and Travis picking. I’ve been playing for decades, and while strumming is good, I’ve never done anything resembling fingerpicking, so it’s way past time to get on that.
    This could also be the year for some Donovan and Dylan songs (and maybe some others) in alternate tunings, such as Open D. There should be some harmonica practice in my future, too.

    Those are all admirable goals! Fortunately, we’ve got a good number of easy, beginners fingerpicking lessons at Guitar Noise, which you can find here:

    Travis Picking Part One

    Travis Picking Part Two

    “Wildwood Flower” is a great way to learn the Carter-style picking and it’s high time I tried to put together a tutorial on that. Hopefully 2018 will be kind to me in terms of time…

    Good luck and keep up posted on your goals!

    Hello Wendy

    I just tried all four links and they do work. For which particular book are you seeking the audio files?
    Write me directly at dhodgeguiat@aol.com and we’ll get this sorted out.
