DVD - Happy Traum Teaches Fingerstyle Arrangements for Six Blues, Country and Folk Songs
• Careless Love Blues and In the Evening When the Sun Goes Down are steady-thumb blues in the Brownie McGhee, Big Bill Broonzy tradition, and are jam-packed with great licks, runs and solos.
• Woody Guthrie’s I Ain't Got No Home is a kind of “Woody-meets-Merle Travis” arrangement, based on playing an alternating bass against country-style treble picking.
• Things Are Coming My Way adds some cool single-string bass/melody, using thumb and index finger like a flatpick, along with alternating bass fingerpicking.
• Spanish is the Loving Tongue and Tennessee Waltz employ a more “classical” approach to guitar arranging using thumb and three fingers to create beautiful melodies and harmonies against rich bass lines.
