Grammy-winning guitarist & acclaimed author Mark Hanson teaches you how to play great fingerpicking blues guitar instrumentals on this, his first DVD for Music Sales. Mark Hanson has given many clinics over the years, and his easy-going style makes him a perfect instructor for the DVD format. Here, Mark begins with simple two-note blues riffs (A/E to A/F#) and gradually takes the early intermediate guitarist from those shuffle patterns to playing full-blown blues progressions and solos! DVD features slow and performance tempos; notation & TAB in pdf format; chord grid overlays; and tuning notes. In addition to the instructional part of this DVD, Mark plays his arrangements of "The Water is Wide, " "Amazing Grace, " and others. Highly recommended! ©2007, DVD, 75 minutes.
