Fingerstyle is a musical technique practiced by guitarists such as Chet Atkins and Merle Travis that involves plucking the strings directly with the fingertips, fingernails, or picks attached to fingers. Discover the story behind an Indiana competition that celebrates this unique plucking-style of guitar play in Fingerstyle! Indiana’s Guitar Festival.

Since 2012, the Indiana State Fingerstyle Guitar Festival has brought some of the finest guitarists from around the US to the Brown County Playhouse in Nashville, Indiana. Fingerstyle! Indiana’s Guitar Festival showcases the two-day festival where guitarists compete for a custom-made guitar, the opportunity to play in the evening concert, bragging rights, and an invitation to the international competition.

Recorded at the 2019 fingerstyle competition, the program features performances and a behind-the-scenes look at the festival. The documentary includes interviews with the performers, as well as fingerstyle guitar experts and music historians, who provide an overview of the fingerstyle technique.
