DVD - Conquer the Challenge of the Steady Thumb!-The Ultimate Fingerpicking Starter Method

taught by Happy Traum
$26.95
sku: 300-DVD469
Syncopation is the heart and soul of guitar fingerpicking - the thumb maintaining a solid, foot-tapping rhythm while the fingers play melody notes on the high strings. Keeping that beat going in the bass is one of the main stumbling blocks for learning players. This "remedial" course will help train your thumb to be your drummer, bass player and rhythm section. Happy has been teaching this technique at workshops and guitar camps for years, and he knows how to break it down. He starts off with the monotonic or "dead thumb" bass, played on the low E string. Youll learn to develop a solid sense of time before adding treble notes on different beats. Before long, youll be playing simple but cool blues licks, scales, riffs, double stops and melodies, all while keeping the beat with your thumb, plus you'll get ideas for putting these licks into classic songs such as "Baby Please Don't Go," "Down in the Flood" and "I'll Fly Away." Beginners. Note/tab included as PDF on the disc. 80 min.   More Details...
