These videos and audio files are bonus content related to the August 2014 issue of Guitar World. For the full range of interviews, features, tabs and more, pick up the new issue on newsstands now or at the Guitar World Online Store.

To fingerpickers in the know, it would be a sin to cite superpickers like Tommy Emmanuel, Lenny Breau, Chet Atkins and Merle Travis without including the name Doyle Dykes.

Over the past decades, Dykes has become renowned for his flawless technique, musicality (superior tone, dynamics, feel and taste), heart-wrenching solo guitar compositions (such as the 9/11 tribute “A Call to Freedom”) and creative arrangements (“Wabash Cannonball,” “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” “Amazing Grace” and others).

Dykes puts a unique spin on his influences, which include the aforementioned guitarists as well as Jerry Reed, Les Paul, Duane Eddy, the Beatles and more. Armed with a Fred Kelly thumbpick and his Guild signature-model guitar (equipped with an L.R. Baggs LB6 pickup and modified Element preamp), Dykes performs numerous concerts and master classes per year. Check his web site, doyledykes.com, for up-to-date touring info.
