Lee Drew 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.

David Bromberg  - David Bromberg & His Big Band - DVD
For a man who quit an established recording career in order to study the fine art of making violins, David Bromberg sure knows how to work a room. A veteran sideman to Dylan, Ringo Starr and Jerry Jeff Walker, as well as a solo performer and bandleader of more than 40 years standing, the bearded and bespectacled Bromberg may have kept a low profile through the so-called MTV era. But he didn’t sleep through the more recent recording industry implosion and its attendant rise of the Pod People. Rather, he took his boundary busting energy back to the live stage, with the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, New Jersey playing a big role in this master entertainer’s game plan. The multi-instrumentalist and musicologist has made the Count Basie Theatre a crucial pit stop in his annual tour schedule for each of the last four years ... While Bromberg may take the spotlight for an unaccompanied number or two, it’s his role as bandleader and raconteur that prompted the New York Times to brand him “electrifying.” A performance by the 12-piece David Bromberg Big Band fireballs forward like a bull in a used record shop, tracing its own musical logic — Bob Wills to Bob Dylan to Bo Diddley to Dave Dudley — with station stops anywhere from Sam Cooke to “a bluegrass tribute to Ethel Merman.” Not to mention some fondly remembered originals from his vintage albums and a lot of things that you thought had been written by the Grateful Dead, Patsy Cline, Cab Calloway or even the Clash.

Cindy's in-depth study of minor chord shapes and licks will enable you to play Django Reinhardt's great "Minor Swing" and just about any tune that requires improvisation in minor keys. In the classic "Panhandle Rag" she shows how playing in an open G6 tuning gives you an instant country/swing sound. On this DVD, Cindy turns the Dobro into a funky, hard-driving lead instrument. " Faded Love", the classic fiddle piece of the Bob Wills era of traditional country swing, is a "must" for any player who wants a full command of the Dobro's repertoire. This clear and insightful lesson will expand your range of ideas and teach you important music theory that will make you a more versatile all-around player.

Brad Davis - Flatpicking The Blues - Book, DVD & CD
In this course, master flatpicker Brad Davis teaches you how to flatpick the blues. If you are interested in traditional blues, Brad shows you how to approach playing the blues using both theoretical and practical methods. You will learn how to play blues style rhythm on several variations of the twelve-bar blues progression. You will then learn the blues scale at several positions on the neck and learn how to apply those "blues notes" in a freeform improvisational style over the twelve-bar blues progression. This section not only increases your knowledge of the guitar fingerboard as it relates to the blues, but also provides you with a method for increasing your improvisational skills. After laying this groundwork, Brad then examines common blues phrasing, technique and standard blues licks and demonstrates how to apply them. He also shows you examples of licks played in the style of  Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robert Johnson and Eric Clapton. Brad even demonstrates how Bill Monroe's blues licks on the mandolin can be incorporated on the guitar. In addition to teaching you how to play straight blues, Brad also demonstrates and teaches how you might take tunes that you may already know from the standard flatpicking repertoire and spice them up with blues licks. If you are tired of playing flatpicked fiddle tunes and bluegrass songs the same old way, you will greatly appreciate Brad's instruction on how you can add excitement and interest to songs that you already play by adding a blues flavor.

Danny Gatton - Unfinished Business: The Life & Times Of Danny Gatton - Book
Written by Ralph Heibutzki, Danny Gatton was a guitar virtuoso known for his wide stylistic range. With a musical vocabulary that included country, gospel, rockabilly, soul and standards, he dubbed his own style "Redneck Jazz".

His personal demons and his struggle to reach a wider audience while staying true to his own music proved to be too much for him and in 1994 he took his own life. Drawing from first-hand interviews with dozens of friends, family members and fellow musicians, "Unfinished Business" places Gatton's musical contributions in context and documents his influence on those peers who admired him most.

Buster Jones - Just Us - Book and Online Audio
Although his scorching fingerpicking was most impressive, a closer look at "Just Us" reveals that Buster is equally adept at what many musicians consider as a more difficult task: playing fewer notes... ones that mean more and say more with less, as he does on album opener "A Simple Gift", title cut "Just Us", and "One Sad Clown". Just Us is an album consisting largely of his own compositions inspired by his two main guitars "Merle" and "Pearl". Along the way we are treated to a barn-storming version of "Alabama Jubilee" (it must be tunes like this that caused Chet Atkins to say of Buster "He plays like he's double-parked"), "Collage-a-Reed" and "Clawin'" (each inspired by mentor Jerry Reed), while "Let the Sun Shine In" sounds like an instant fingerpicking classic that you could swear you have heard before, but haven't! Songs include: "A Second Glance, A Simple Gift, Alabama Jubilee, Be Like Dad, Collage-A-Reed, Flight Path, Just Us, Last Request, Let the Sun Shine In, One Sad Clown, Pierpaolo, Still Live Five, The Thoughts of One, Thom's Thumb".

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".

Barry always thought that bluegrass and jazz were a wonderful combination and the most gratifying challenge is to create solo guitar arrangements that meld the two styles in a tasteful and exciting manner! In this second volume Barry presents 4 solo guitar arrangements using more advanced techniques. Songs include: "The Way You Look Tonight, All Of Me, Oh Baby, Limehouse Blues".

Orrin Star - Orrin Star's Flatpicking Primer - DVD
Subtitled "What the Tab Won't Tell You," this DVD and its accompanying 23-page transcription book are designed for the guitar player who already has some knowledge of guitar chords, rhythm, and perhaps even lead styles outside of the flatpicking realm (fingerstyle, classical, blues, rock, etc.). If you already know how to play the guitar, but are not familiar with the flatpicking style and repertoire, then this DVD is for you! In this DVD Orrin Star teaches you the fundamentals of flatpicking in great detail focusing specifically on the technique and articulation. Orrin’s masterful presentation of right-hand technique will help you overcome the common hurdles that many who are new to flatpicking tend to encounter. He also emphasizes the special characteristics of the flatpicking technique and style to include how to develop the "fiddle tune" feel and groove. Orrin's presentation on left-hand technique will also help you smooth out your playing by "squeezing the juice" out of every note. Orrin teaches all technical details in the context of learning songs from the flatpicking repertoire. The songs included on this DVD and tab book are: Old Joe Clark (4 arrangements), Whiskey Before Breakfast, I Saw the Light, House of the Rising Sun, Don't Let Your Deal Go Down, Soldier's Joy, Red Haired Boy (2 arrangements), and Cherokee Shuffle. Each of these song arrangements is designed to teach you specific technical skills related to the art of flatpicking (such as crosspicking, floating, Carter Style, Blake Style, integrating strums into lead playing, accenting notes to emulate a vocalists phrasing, etc.). This DVD is not just a repertoire builder. As Orrin states in the DVD's introduction, his goal is to "teach you how to fish" not simply "catch fish for you".

Merle Travis - The Real Merle Travis Guitar - DVD
Here's a guitar lesson that is a must for all fans of Merle Travis! The only son of the legendary guitarist gives us an in-depth look at the famous technique that changed the course of guitar history. When Merle Travis passed away in 1983, we lost one of our most innovative and distinctive musical voices. Fortunately, his songs and fingerpicking style live on in the hands of his son Thom Bresh, a talented and dynamic guitarist who learned the real Travis-style guitar right from the source. Thom Bresh grew up listening to, and later playing with, his famous father and his skilled hands bear a haunting resemblance to his father's. He takes you -- step-by-step -- through Merle's timeless techniques, playing the famous 1938 Martin D-28 with the custom Bigsby neck that was passed on to him by Travis. By the time this powerful lesson is over, you'll have gained an understanding of the real Travis sound and will be playing such guitar instrumental standards as "Guitar Rag," "Cannonball Rag," "Walking The Strings," "I'll See You In My Dreams," "Bugle Call Rag," "Farewell My Blue Belle," "Hangin' With The Girls I Know." We are proud to present this lesson to the growing number of Travis enthusiasts and fingerstyle guitarists worldwide. It will make a valuable addition to the collections of all serious guitarists and historians, as it offers a rare opportunity to see and learn from the real-life continuance of a musical legacy!

Doc Watson - Flatpicking With Doc - DVD
Doc sits down with Steve Kaufman, a top-notch flatpicker in his own right, and shows how he plays some of his most beloved songs and guitar instrumentals. He and Steve trade licks and play duets, and Doc slows his playing down so that you will be able to follow along as you learn to play these fabulous tunes. Starting with the old gospel song Open Up Them Pearly Gates, Doc shows how he uses hammer-ons and pull-offs to easily add notes to his accompaniment. He then launches into a crosspicking solo, moving effortlessly up the neck in simple movable positions that create a complex-sounding break. Moving to the classic ballad Little Sadie, Doc explains how he devises his licks and positions in D minor. On More Pretty Girls Than One,  New River Train and White House Blues  he slows down the flashy runs that punctuate each line of the song. This is one of Doc's signature guitar techniques that has baffled many students of Doc's guitar style. He then carefully breaks down of the solo to each song. Doc and Steve launch into breathtaking versions of classic fiddle tunes Salt Creek and  Ragtime Annie,  showing you the lead and back-up, as well as the "twin" harmony parts. (Try these out with a friend.) These show stoppers are also slowed down so you can really see what these two incredible guitarists are playing. Changing gears, Doc teaches his version of the hauntingly lovely Goodnight Waltz,  as well as his improvisations to the country and jazz tunes, When It's Peach Pickin' Time in Georgia and Sweet Georgia Brown. Finally, as an extra treat, Doc brings on his grandson Richard Watson for a performance of three bluesy songs they have been performing together: Walk On, Boy,  Chicago Blues and the evergreen Summertime.

Joseph Weidlich - Old Time Country Guitar Backup Basics - Book
This book focuses on examining the standard backup techniques used by string band guitarists who recorded in the 1920s and the early 1930s, specifically those who used a thumbpick (adapted to today's flatpick style) versus blues guitarists, who adapted the classic fingerstyle techniques used to play the parlor guitar. This book focuses on three basic techniques: 1) the boom-chick pattern, 2) bass runs connecting chord changes, and 3) use of the pentatonic scale. With a solid foundation in those basic techniques presented in this book, you will find that by just adding slight variations to them you will have sufficient knowledge and technique to hold your own in backing up fiddle tunes etc., in the old-time traditional country guitar style. The final part of the book focuses on some interesting variations on these basic backup licks, which were transcribed from commercial string band recordings of the 1920s and 1930s.
