Pumping Nylon by Scott Tennant has become one of the most popular technique books for classical and fingerstyle guitarists alike. It has great physical workouts to train muscles and gain finger independence and dexterity. It’s a very popular book due to its memorable exercises which are great for warm ups and technique correction. It’s more of a reference exercise book rather than a method so best suited to intermediate and advanced guitarists. However, beginners could start with some of the independence and alignment exercises. Highly recommended.
