One of my very favorites is from lesser known Brian Gore. He has an excellent book out that is an great read even if you don't like the transcriptions (and IMO those are great too). It's called Fingerstyle Guitar/ Lessons in Technique and Creativity. You can look up the music on it by visiting YouTube. This book isn't for you if you are not looking for an interesting read from the founder of International Guitar Night or if you want a ton of well known songs.

BTW, I like your forum handle; obviously you are a fan of Hedges. His son sent out a survey of what fans would like to see best on a website he was developing but it has been probably 2 years since I filled that survey out and then I never heard another word about it. A new Hedges site would be fantastic!
Thanks for the book recommendation, I'll look into it. Any other fingerstyle CD compilations you recommend?

Yes, I'm a Hedges devotee. He's unparalleled, in my opinion, in creativity, tone, musicality, and passion. I had actually heard that a different guy, Jake White, was developing a new website and writing a biography or something along those lines, but I'm not sure of the progress there.
