You can buy hard copies of the books, make sure you download the associated sound files.

The above books are about developing right hand dexterity.

Getting a teacher - you can do that, but because you are an experienced player you probably don't need one. A teacher can give you insights into technique and music interpretation though.

Also, I have the 120 right hand exercises in GuitarPro (notation and tab) and do it occasionally. I should do it more. I don't play classical style, but I recommend this.

Iíll second Barryís suggestions. Mark came out with a 30th anniversary of both books last year. I did both over the course of 4-5 years and Iíve gone back to learn a couple of new songs in the 2nd bookís 30th anniversary edition. The 2nd book has challenging arrangements that each teach you a lot about fingerstyle technique.

Mark is also my teacher. We do a FaceTime lesson every two weeks. For me itís money well spent. I now do other arrangements from different sources and Mark is excellent in guidance and critique.
