Download Only - An instructional tool for people interested in finding different ways to approach American vernacular guitar. Many of the styles of fingerpicking and strumming used by the early songsters incorporated parts of the banjo techniques used in old-time music. Other approaches to fingerpicking were learnt from the 1920s recordings of musicians such as Jimmie Rodgers and Papa Charlie Jackson. They used a syncopated style to 'dress up' what would otherwise be simple chord progressions. Each tune is taught phrase by phrase and played slowly on a split-screen. A Bonus Audio section features original recordings of all the tunes. Note/tab included as PDF file. 110 min.
