Pete Huttlinger is back! He has been flooded with requests for guitar instruction on more of Dan Fogelberg’s popular hits, and he has obliged with a new DVD that will satisfy all students and fans of these timeless songs.
Dan Fogelberg's iconic songs, soaring vocals and rich guitar arrangements gained him millions of avid fans and secured him a place in the pantheon of American popular music. His acoustic-based songs drew from a variety of sources: rock, folk, bluegrass and the California sounds of the'70s and '80s.
Once again, Pete Huttlinger delves into the vast John Denver set list, this time choosing ten songs that have been requested by his enthusiastic DVD "students." These are among the most beautiful treasures in the John Denver repertoire, and are a joy to learn and play.
The first two volumes of this series have met with such enthusiasm from guitar playing fans of John Denver that it became clear that we had to continue with a third lesson. Pete Huttlinger's comprehensive understanding of John Denver's music, and his ability to communicate techniques to learning guitarists, have inspired innumerable players and have made these among Homespun's most successful instructional products.
Pete Huttlinger's previous lesson on the songs and guitar styles of John Denver was one of the most popular titles we have ever produced. As John's former lead guitarist, Pete knows this music as well as anyone, and this time out he teaches seven more classic John Denver songs, detailing exactly how John himself played each of them.
John Denver is remembered as one of the most beloved figures in the history of American popular music. He was an accomplished singer, songwriter and guitar player as well as a committed social activist, humanitarian and environmentalist. The spare, deceptively simple accompaniments he devised for his many hit songs gave each one a memorable sound that continues to ring in our ears to this day. Although John Denver's voice was his primary instrument, he played such beautiful parts to accompany himself that he created a sound for an entire era.
This follow-up to one of Homespun's top-selling DVDs teaches you how to play seven more hit songs by the legendary singer-songwriter, Jim Croce. Guitarist Pete Huttlinger is faithful to the spirit of the original recordings as he breaks down the strums, picking patterns, chord progressions and other accompaniment techniques that Jim Croce devised to bring out each song's unique qualities. As an added bonus, you'll learn some of the lead intros and distinctive solos as arranged and played by Maury Muelheissen, Jim's long-time lead guitarist and extraordinary "one man band."
Jim Croce is one of the most beloved singer-songwriters in the history of American popular music. His timeless songs, with their compelling melodies, strong story lines and unique guitar arrangements, are instantly recognizable, easy to learn and fun to play.
