Six String Fingerpicking Courses and Lessons

Englishman In New York (Sting) – Fingerstyle Guitar Lesson and TAB









This is the full fingerstyle guitar lesson for Englishman In New York.

This song appears on Sting’s 1987 album Nothing Like the Sun. When released as a single it only reached No. 51 in the UK and No. 84 in the US. Despite this, over the years it has become one of his better known and classic songs.

This arrangement is great fun to play and I’d say that it’s best suited to the intermediate and above fingerpicker.
