Fingerstyle (Finger Style)  noun \ˈfiŋ-gər ˈstī-əl\  Change text size for readability...  Print This Page
00:40As the term implies, "Fingerstyle" picking is a style of guitar playing using the fingers, rather than a flatpick, and most often with a flattop steel strung guitar which offers a clear tone and is especially suited for this style of playing.

Fingerstyle guitar is distinct from classical guitar even though both are played with fingers instead of flatpicks. Generally, the guitars that are most preferred for fingerstyle playing have small to intermediate body sizes to emphasize clarity in the treble range. Dreadnought and jumbo size guitars are not usually considered fingerstyle instruments.
