    I practice an hour daily or even more. How long will it take for me to learn it? I am just following youtube lessons. So you also recommend me ways to learn guitar. Do many of the guitarists know fingerstyle or rarely?

    Thanks in advance

    i cant really comment cause i learnt fingerstyle slowly as a i went along over a period of years
    but then again... i was eleven
    i know people who have properly mastered it in three months(but they completely stopped playing guitar with a pick)
    also it takes less time if you practice on a classical guitar(nylon strings)
    norally ppl who strictly follow classical music play fingerstyle
    cause in popular music like here comes the sun, nothing else matters and many other such songs... even though finger style would help its not compulsory
    in India we dont see as many finger style players as pick players
    but then again a band would prefer a pick player whereas solo playing would sound "richer" in fingerstyle(without backing track)
