Easy Steps to Guitar Fingerpicking by : Happy Traum

DVD One – Demystifying Alternate Thumb Style: For many aspiring players; the ability to maintain a rock-steady rhythmic pulse with their thumb while picking out off-the-beat melody notes with their fingers represents a “holy grail” of country; folk and blues playing. Drawing on four decades of teaching experience; Happy Traum has devised this nearly foolproof method to help them get off to a great start. The simple children's song “Skip to My Lou” helps teach the basic concepts before getting into fingerpicking standards such as: Spike Driver's Blues • Green; Green Rocky Road • Staggerlee • Nine Pound Hammer • Hobo's Lullaby.


DVDs Two and Three: These two DVDs take the “Easy Steps” course to the next level; adding songs and techniques that will bring your playing firmly into intermediate territory. You'll learn how to play in the versatile and useful “dropped D” tuning; with its rich; booming bass notes and easy chord shapes. Five classic songs are taught; each one rich with possibilities for creating exciting arrangements: The Colorado Trail • My Home's Across the Smoky Mountains • Fishin' Blues • The Blues Ain't Nothin' • John Henry. Back in standard tuning; you're introduced to the songs and styles of Merle Travis; Doc Watson; John Hurt and other masters of traditional fingerpicking. You'll learn to move freely around the fingerboard and will be playing licks; slides; hammer-ons and bass runs while maintaining the steady thumb rhythm that gives this style its ear-catching appeal. By the time you've completed this course you'll be picking: I Am a Pilgrim • Deep River Blues • Louis Collins • Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out • Step It Up and Go.
