    Product Details


    Fingerpicking is essential to the blues, country, rock and folk music ...and it's a way to solo or accompany your own singing. In this DVD lesson, Fred Sokolow starts at the beginning (tuning up and playing simple chords), and shows you patterns, licks and grooves you can use to play any style of music.

    By the end of this 70 minute session you will know how to play:

    • Several fingerpicking patterns/rhythm grooves useful for many styles of music
    • Chords and licks in five different keys
    • Connecting "bass runs" in all five keys
    • Lots of well known tunes including Stealin', Stagolee, Wabash Cannonball, Nine Pound Hammer, Sloop John B, Jamaica Farewell, St. James Infirmary Blues, Careless Love, House Of The Rising Sun, Scarborough Fair and Streets Of Laredo.
    • Melodies and alternating thumb-bass at the same time.

    Review: I have used several of Fred's DVDs, this is my favorite - much more info on various finger patterns than the blues disc that is available. Could last me a year to 'get' the patterns into my hands. - Donald Ruvolis/Amazon Customer Review
