Detectorists is a hugely popular British TV series about the lives of two eccentric metal detectorists who spend their days looking for ancient treasure in the English countryside, hoping to find the fortune of a lifetime.
It just so happens that Detectorists has a great theme song and, fortuitously for us, it happens to be a fingerstyle one. As a fan of the show, I’ve been looking forward to making a lesson on this quant little song for a while.
