Learn how to play and sing nine classic Paul Simon tunes from start to finish. This lesson will teach you how to fingerpick backup arrangements while singing, how to play instrumental solos and how to begin and end each song.
While studying Fred Sokolow's arrangements you will also learn a lot about fingerpicking: backup patterns, soloing ideas and various chord positions.
Each song is played at regular speed and then slowed down with a split-screen that gives you a close-up look at the picking as well as chording hand. All the arrangements are clearly written out in tab and music in the accompanying booklet along with lead sheets and lyrics.
Titles include: The Boxer, Bridge Over Troubled Water , American Tune, Mrs. Robinson, Scarborough Fair, Hearts and Bones, Me and Julio Down By The Schoolyard, 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy) & Mother and Child Reunion
