Thread Name: Learning to play guitar
Subject: RE: Learning to play guitar
One of the greatest innovations in guitar instruction (or any musical instruction, I suppose) is the lesson book accompanied by CD: There's a basic one out I think called "Finger Style Blues Guitar," and several more advanced ones--Tony Rice has a bluegrass guitar lesson book/CD out and I have a couple of my students working from that. Jam Trax has a good one out for fiddle tunes on guitar and banjo (and, of course, performer CDs are great to play along (I'm working on imitating some of Art Thieme's clawhammer banjo playing on his CD and I also try playing along with Doc Watson and others [David Grissman's "Common Chord" is another favorite]). (Oh, if anyone would like the keys for the songs on "Doc Watson on Stage" or "Common Chord," lemme know and I'll post them.) --seed
