DVD - Show Me the Way to Go Home - Fingerpicking Blues, Gospel and Novelty Songs
taught by Stefan Grossman
It doesnt get more fun than this. If you're comfortable playing alternating bass these arrangements will expand your technique. Starts with the popular children's game "Green, Green Rocky Road" in dropped D tuning, loosely based on Dave Van Ronk's arrangement. There are two songs in the key of C: "Little Boy, Little Boy Who Made Your Britches" has direct lineage in Piedmont children's rhymes, and "There's a Table Sitting in Heaven" is a beautiful melodic gospel tune. The lesson closes with two humorous tunes: "Show Me The Way To Go Home" was sung in the film "Jaws" as the shark was closing in, and the 1907 instrumental "The Teddy Bears' Picnic," a well-loved tune known throughout the world. Each tune is taught phrase by phrase and played slowly on a split-screen. Note/tab included as a PDF file on the disc. The Bonus Audio section includes source recordings. 105 min. More Details...
