Lee Andrews - First Jams: Flatpick Guitar - Book and CD
The First Jam series was created to give children and beginners of all ages a book of simple, common tunes to learn. These are standard “Jam” tunes in the Bluegrass/Old Time music styles. All the books in this series are written in the same keys; they can all be played together without any problems. So get your friends or family who play guitar, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, dulcimer or Dobro together, grab these books and start jamming. Improvisation – Another idea behind writing the First Jam series was to provide a number of tunes that were easy to learn, but that are also a great to begin working on improvising. Each books offer the melody for that particular instrument as well as back-up chords for another instrument to accompany you. Each song is represented in Tab, notation and chord symbols. The accompanying CD has two tracks for each song. The first playing the song with the melody line, the second track offers just the backup so you can play the melody over it or even improvise. Tunes include: "Cripple Creek, Old Joe Clark, Will the Circle Be Unbroken" and many more.

Based on a melding of jazz voicings and samba rhythms, this gently swinging fingerpicking based style will bring new colors and rhythms to all your guitar accompaniments and solos! Aaron Gilmartin builds your bossa nova guitar technique step-by-step, providing chordal exercises, melodic passages and syncopated picking along with invaluable guitar advice and musical knowledge. He opens the lesson with his original song " Hold the Place" which is based around a typical four-chord progression that will give your playing an instantly recognizable Brazilian sound, while putting it into a present day singer-songwriter context. Teaching in "little bites" so you can absorb each musical idea, Aaron carefully demonstrates the chord shapes, rhythms, turnarounds, and progressions that will allow you to work out arrangements for songs like The Girl from Ipanema, Black Orpheus, Desafinado and other international hits!

Fred Sokolow - Travis Picking For Beginners - DVD
Merle Travis' brilliant fingerpicking style inspired Chet Atkins and generations of country, folk, bluegrass and rock guitarists. Travis picking is a very complete use of the guitar: when you play steady, alternating bass notes with your thumb and pick melodies with your fingers you're playing lead, rhythm and bass all by yourself. But how do you keep that thumb-bass independent so it doesn't get derailed when your fingers pick the melody? Fred makes it easy for beginners or intermediate guitarists by breaking it all down and taking each song step by step. First you learn the melody, then add the bass, then add the syncopation that makes it swing. Split screen versions of the songs with close-ups of both hands will help you learn Travis style - it's a great introduction to fingerpicking! Songs include: "Nine Pound Hammer, I Am a Pilgrim, Windy and Warm, Whispering, Mack the Knife".
