Lindsey Buckingham Style Guitar Playing

There isn’t a guitarist out there who has had more of an influence on me than Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham. His rich style of fingerpicking incorporates melodies, rhythm and chords, and smoothly blends the techniques of folk, bluegrass, and rock to create his unique sound. His style evolved over time and was inspired by musicians such as Merle Travis and the Kingston Trio; musicians from whom he emulated strumming and picking techniques.
