Steven King's  Fingerstyle Guitar College
 
                            Comment from an enrolled student of Fingerstyle College, a professional working guitarist:
As you know, I have been playing your arrangements and I am amazed how each arrangement works so well on the guitar..so logical, clean, challenging and rewarding. I've bought tons of books over the years with arrangements of Beatles tunes, Jazz Standards, Pop music etc and none of them can compare to your approach. Seriously! Some of these commercial books have arrangements that are so "wrong" it's amazing how they made it to print. Others are so 'unguitaristic' you might think they took the piano version and condensed it onto the G Clef...unplayable, awkward and terrible sounding.  -Steve Savastino, Fingerstyle College enrolled guitarist    
  
           (see more comments quoted at the bottom of this page from our enrolled guitarists)    
 
"I have played professionally for 40 years and I believe your arranging for the guitar is the best that has been done to date, bar none. You have exquisite taste in everything you do. I have most of your CD's and look forward to learning a great deal from your college."      --Steve Barley

"just wanted to tell you how thrilled i was with this new arrangement -the melody, harmony improvised bass lines and chording were the work of a world class guitatarist and arranger. i went through it a dozen times last night and the smile never left my face.   thanks  again, omar"  -Omar Keamy

I have to be honest...I checked out the two [artist name removed here] tunes on youtube and was a little hesitant to place an order . they're great tunes, but i really didn't thinkd they could be effective for solo guitar. But, I was totally WRONG! These arrangements are fantastic and you capture all of the feel and mood of the tunes. I couldn't stop playing them last night. they are going to be a part of my standard rep from now on. i look forward to more - -Steve Savastino
********************************************************************************************************
Hi Steven,  The arrangement is fantastic. You are the finest musical arranger in all the world!  I am now having great fun learning another tune that I have loved for years. The new Taylor will be pleased.
Many thanks my friend!

Song titles and song artist names have been withheld from the above quotes pursuant to orders from music publishers that no reference be made on the web to any copyrighted song titles arranged for guitar as part of the study curricula for Fingerstyle College, to keep the market fair for their published sheet music sales.  The song arrangements are part of the Fingerstyle College curricula and are allowed under Fair Use Law, and these arrangements are never for sale or available to the general public, only to enrolled students of Fingerstyle College, in order to convey the hundreds of performance secrets within Steven King's style of solo guitar playing.  Knowledge is power, learn well, enjoy the process, have patience and persistence, then make people happy with your amazing guitar ability.

You can run Fingerstyle College files on iPad, iPhone, PC and MAC.   For PC or Mac, get the free TEFVIEW PLAYER at www.tabledit.com.  For the phone, get the TEFVIEW app at the AppStore in category Music.
The keywords are TEFview or TablEdit.  
See instructions at bottom of this page on how to load TEF files into the App
 
Instructions how to load a tef file into the TEFView app on your iPhone or iPad.

1.       Create an email on your computer and address the email to yourself.
2.       Attach the tef file to your email and send the email to yourself. (you can attach as many files as you want).
3.       Open the email on your iPhone or iPad.
4.       Open the attachment in your email.
5.       Tap on Open in “TEFView”.  The tef file will be placed in the TEFView app.
6.       Open the TEFView app.  Tap on the folder icon at the bottom right of the screen.  Your tef file will be listed.
7.       Enjoy studying Steven King’s fingerstyle arrangements anywhere at anytime on your Apple mobile devices.

Another way to load tef files on iPad or iPhone:

From Safari, if you tap on a tef file, you will be prompted to open it with TEFview
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Both above ways are tedious when you just want to make a massive transfer of your tef files


The most effective way is the iTunes synchronization:

In the bottom part of the apps tab, there is a list of apps for which you can transfer
files. TEFview is one of them. You just select the files you want to
transfer onto your device and iTunes copies them in the app. It is well
explained in one of the banjo hangout threads.
