The fingerpicking style of French guitarist François Sciortino is based on the early influences of Chet Atkins, Merle Travis or Marcel Dadi. Sciortino’s ever melodious and grooving style is a mixture of these role models with his native French and Italian roots. Step by step and accompanied by numerous tips and exercises, François explains his style by means of his compositions “Gypsy Rag”, “Folk Song”, “Kabel et Mimine” and “Canicule Blues”. François Sciortino’s easily understandable guide to ragtime, folk and blues offers a lot of fun for guitar players.
