Folk singer, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]James Taylor[/lastfm], is renonwned for his guitar stylings and now he is offering advice on how to play your guitar (or harden your nails) via his website.

James Taylow will be and will be adding new videos over the coming months and says he has been “meaning to do this for a long time.” Consider it free education for you budding guitarists; Taylor will give note-by-note explanations and examples of how he wrote his songs.

He also divulges a trade-secret for plucking– fake fingernails.

Taylor explains: “Human nails are not strong enough to put up with the repeated punishment that finger-picking puts them through.” he says. A video on his site shows his fake fingernail “technique.”
