Though Buddy Holly’s career was short, he was a huge influence on the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and most of the rockers and songwriters of the 1960s, 70s and beyond. Most of the songs in this collection have been hits many times over and they’re still covered today by rock, pop and country bands.
Fred makes Buddy’s tunes accessible to fingerpicking guitarists in this instructional DVD that includes rockers like That’ll Be the Day, It’s So Easy and Maybe Baby, and pretty ballads like Raining In My Heart and Everyday. He explains the tricky parts of the arrangements, and presents a split-screen, slower version of each tune, so that you can back yourself up singing and can play instrumental versions of every song as well. His easy-going instructional style makes it easy to learn! Other Buddy Holly tunes in this set include Peggy Sue, Lonesome Tears and It Doesn’t Matter Anymore. All the songs (backup and solos) are written out in tab and music in the accompanying booklet.
