Kurt Vile and Courtney Barnett are a dream pairing. And they very well may have one of the best albums of 2017 with the charmingly named Lotta Sea Lice. They're both unique, finger-style players, and in this edition of Guitar Moves, they're showing us what that looks like.

The duo recently met up with Matt Sweeney in Palm Springs to regale him with tales of playing without a pick, teaching a thing or two to Neil Young, and how they learned to play. And they have a little bit of advice for all the kids out there just staring out: "Just get in there and don't be afraid," Vile says. And per Courtney, "the best things come from mistakes."
