Happy Traum's series will help learning players develop essential guitar technique. Each video concentrates on a specific “building block,” allowing guitarists to delve deeply into targeted areas.
Video One – Barre Chords and How to Use Them: Barre chords are vital if you want to move beyond the third fret, play solid rhythm in all keys and get a wide variety of sounds through chord inversions. Learn basic chord theory, transposing from one key to another and how to play chord progressions and songs. 60-MIN. VIDEO • INCLUDES CHORDS • BEGINNER LEVEL
Video Two – Bass Runs and How to Use Them: Bass runs offer movement, harmony and a smooth transition while changing chords. Adding them helps teach scales in several keys and develops good timing and single-note accuracy. Happy teaches a variety of bass “walks,” from the most basic to complex chromatic runs. 60-MIN. VIDEO • INCLUDES MUSIC + TAB • BEGINNER LEVEL
Video Three – Instant Fingerpicking Success: The fingerpicking style is one of the most popular and engaging ways of playing the guitar. It's especially good for song accompaniment, and has long been favored by folk, blues and country pickers. This lesson de-mystifies the right-hand technique by breaking it down into patterns that can be learned quickly and easily: Once mastered, these patterns can spice up your all-time favorite songs. 60-MIN. VIDEO • INCLUDES MUSIC + TAB • BEGINNER LEVEL
Video Four – Creating Folksong Arrangements: The beauty of the guitar is not necessarily based on advanced and highly technical playing skills. Happy takes easy songs and shows how to transform them into beautiful showpieces using right-hand patterns, altered chords, harmonized scales and other very basic but useful techniques. 60-MIN. VIDEO • INCLUDES MUSIC + TAB • BEGINNER LEVEL.
