  • August 17, 2007 Wonderful intro to bluegrass flatpicking

    I couldn't be more pleased with this DVD set. Steve is a very competent instructor who introduces flatpicking guitar at a pace that is neither too fast nor too slow. The DVD set does assume some knowledge of basic chords and strumming technique, but Steve begins slowly, addressing fundamental...

    issues. Thanks to Homespun, the format is accessible. Steve focuses on helping you use specific techniques in well-known bluegrass songs. Instead of having you work through boring drills, he takes you through short songs that gradually increase in difficulty. Most songs are presented first in a stripped-down version at a slow pace and then dressed up into something a little more challenging and fun. I've had a lot of fun with this set and have already seen my skills improve. I will certainly be investing in more tools by Steve that carry the Homespun label.

  • April 12, 2007 so far so good

    A few pointers on general technique, two of which helped me a whole lot (not just bluegrass). Rest of the DVD's are teaching each individual song, and sometimes two versions of a song (one simpler)so you can take easier to swallow bites. I am only onto the second...

    song but I am feeling good about this so far.
