Muriel Anderson

    Composer and guitarist Muriel Anderson was raised in a musical family in Downers Grove, Illinois. Her mother taught piano and her grandfather had played saxophone in John Philip Sousa's band. Muriel fell in love with the guitar at age ten and learned every style available to her, culminating in classical guitar study at DePaul University.

    She went on to study with classical virtuoso Christopher Parkening and with Nashville legend Chet Atkins. In 1989 Muriel became the first woman to win the National Fingerpicking Guitar Championship in Winfield, Kansas.
 
    Muriel has released several CD's: "Heartstrings, Arioso from Paris, Hometown Live, A Little Christmas Gift" with French guitarist Jean-Felix Lalanne, and "Le Duet". She has also released an instructional video and book as well as a transcription book from her recording "Hometown Live".

    Muriel writes for several guitar magazines and teaches guitar at Belmont University in Nashville. She originated and hosts "Muriel Anderson's All Star Guitar Night" and has performed at Orchestra Hall in Chicago, The Ryman Auditorium and The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee and at The Olympia Theater in Paris.

Muriel Anderson - 1 2 3 Fingerstyle Guitar - DVD
In this beginning fingerstyle course, you'll find the left-hand side of things very familiar and accessible. You’ll dive right into developing that finger/thumb independence on the right-hand and Muriel’s got the educational goods to get you up, running and fingerpicking faster than you can imagine. Guaranteed! In the first section, Muriel focuses on getting your thumb to think for itself by introducing you to thumb circles, the Merle Travis arm, muffling and a few simple alternating bass moves. You’ll then start adding the ring, middle and index fingers to the mix, take on your first fingerstyle tune and ... voila! Muriel then steps you through three accompaniment patterns that you can apply to virtually any tune. You’ll learn how to work the pinky over a G, C and E chord and that will prep you for your second fingerstyle tune, Brad’s Rag. Next up; blue notes, more open chord forms, barre chords, dominant chords, 7th chords, arpeggios, forward rolls, reverse rolls, lullaby, Travis and country patterns. These skills round out your fingerpicking chops and open the door to your new fingerstyle world. But wait... there’s more. Bass runs, chromatic walk-ups and walk-downs, turnarounds, hammer-ons, pull-offs, plus Muriel adds bits and pieces of "Deep River Blues, Ali Cat, Alice’s Restaurant, String Along Rag, Nine Pound Hammer, Windy and Warm, Waterfall in G, and Potato Gun Rag" to your fingerstyle repertoire! Guitar Lab’s innovative learning systems employ a hands-on approach where students “play” their way through the curriculum using learning tools such as PIP video, practice rhythm tracks, and interactive tab and notation which allows the student to play along with the tab and notation at any tempo without change in pitch!
