Based on his popular book published by Acoustic Guitar magazine, David Hamburger's DVD lessons provide a comprehensive examination of the two most essential fingerstyle approaches: Travis picking and steady-bass blues style. He teaches each concept and follows it up with a classic song or instrumental from the blues, country, folk and ragtime traditions, then progresses, lesson-by-lesson, as powerful new techniques - blues scales, walking bass lines, chord substitutions, double stops, moves up the neck and lots more - are added. Fingerpicking is one of the most sought-after, intriguing and challenging of all acoustic guitar techniques.
