I have learned a great deal from the weekend workshops we conduct at my home. From these I realized that our taped guitar lessons were missing a basic series. What was missing was a repertoire of more arrangements played in an alternating bass technique. These three CDs focus on 10 arrangements that will help to reinforce your fingerpicking control. Plus they are fun to learn and play!
Lesson One: Sugarbabe (key of E), Take A Whiff On Me (key of D), It Won’t Be Long and Salty Dog (key of C).
Lesson Two: Longer arrangements are presented in the keys of A, C and G. Sister Kate (key of D); Oh, Babe Ain’t No Lie (key of C) and Spoonful (key of A).
Lesson Three: Elizabeth Cotten’s Shake Sugaree (key of G) and her Delia (key of C). Struttin’ Rag (key of E).

Review: Favorite basic guitar fingerpicking instruction If you have only one guitar instructional CD/tab book, this is the one to have. A fine collection of blues standards with original recordings and Grossman's TAB translations. Material includes basic and more complex Piedmont style picking of these familiar tunes. A very good place to begin for guitar fingerpicking instruction by a leading guitar teacher with demystifying TABs. Sure to please developing blues guitarists and a nice selection of original folk-blues guitar pieces for everyone. – Rick Merwin/Amazon Customer Review
