Over the last ten years the authors at Acoustic Guitar have actually called Andy McKee a “experience,” a “brilliant sonic writer,” and “one of the primary fingerstyle guitarists in the world.” The accolades still prove out in this AG Session in Location, in which McKee performs and teaches some astonishing fingerstyle guitar.

“She,” a composition McKee wrote to impress his now-wife, is played in an unconventional tuning, B G D G A D, with a capo at the fifth fret. The piece has a rich and extensive feel, and while it showcases McKee’s prolonged fingerstyle technique, it feels not fancy, but quite meaningful.

For those thinking about finding out “She,” McKee reveals how to play all of the right-hand patterns and ornamentation methods he utilizes. Fortunately, he demonstrates them really gradually.

In this video, McKee is playing a gorgeous Greenfield guitar, equipped with front and back bevels and fan worries, which help modulation.
