We also have a wide variety of DVD and CD audio lessons focusing on various aspects of fingerstyle and flatpicking guitar styles and techniques.

Our Teachers

Our roster of teachers reads like a "Who's Who" of the guitar world. Our DVD lessons present the finest in clear and incisive visual education. Each tune is performed in full and then explained.

You'll find Nashville fingerstyle, Country and Delta Blues, Ragtime, Celtic, Swing Jazz, Rockabilly, Classic Ragtime, and straight Jazz lessons in our catalog. Our DVD lessons present the finest in clear and incisive visual education. 

Each tune is performed in full and then explained. This is followed by the piece being played slowly on a split screen, allowing the student to see both the right and left hand movements. Everything played during the split screen segments is transcribed and presented in a PDF tab/music booklet that is on the DVD lesson. Bonus audio tracks are included on our Country Blues lessons.

 


Click Here to Buy Blues and the Soul of Man - An Autobiography of Nehemiah "Skip" James Now

Books on legendary Blues musicians written by White musicologists tend to offer a subjective perspective on how the artists felt, thought or reacted. A tainted picture is captured that has more to do with the writer's social and musical experiences. This autobiography is different. The words, thoughts and feelings come directly from the artist's lips. This is the story of Nehemiah "Skip" James told by Nehemiah "Skip" James.

Furry Lewis was also one of the most improvisatory of bluesmen. He was a two finger picker with an unusually varied repertoire of right hand attacks. In open tunings, he favored big brush strokes with his thumb on the upbeats, while when playing in E, he adopted a very complex, detail-oriented approach.
