You can take lessons straight from James Taylor, the singer-songwriter himself. On his YouTube channel/web site, Taylor demonstrates how to file your nailstune your guitar, and then start playing his classic songs. Fire and Rain? JT has that covered. Carolina in My Mind? That too. And also Enough To Be On Your WaySecond WheelLittle Wheel, and Country Road.
