Master Class with Doyle Dykes

February 9 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Turbocharge Your Fingerpicking

Simply picking with your fingers doesn’t make you a fingerstyle player. There’s more to it than that. Join acclaimed fingerstyle guitarist Doyle Dykes and learn to take advantage of every finger on your picking hand. In addition to walking you through his repertoire of trademark techniques, Doyle will show you how to create melodies, independently moving bass lines, and inner voices simultaneously. Doyle will also cover Chet Atkins-, Merle Travis-, and Jerry Reed-style fingerpicking.

  • Create melodies, bass lines, and inner voices simultaneously
  • Develop fingerpicking dexterity and create orchestral effects
  • Learn Chet Atkins-, Merle Travis-, and Jerry Reed-style fingerpicking
  • Explore Doyle’s signature techniques:
    • “B” bender
    • tympani effects
    • “weed eater” or drum roll
    • arpeggio harmonics with tremolo
“There are good fingerpickers, great fingerpickers, and then Doyle Dykes.”
Pete Prown, Editor-in-Chief, Guitar Shop Magazine
