: Easy Steps to Guitar Fingerpicking - Volume III

Now that you have mastered the basics of the alternate-thumb picking style, Happy Traum brings your playing up a few notches by introducing you to the songs and sounds of Merle Travis, Doc Watson, John Hurt and other masters of traditional guitar fingerpicking. Each piece you learn will add challenging techniques that will build your musical versatility, increase your dexterity and improve your knowledge of the guitar fingerboard.

As always, Happy's expert instruction is clear, concise and friendly. His goal is to help you develop your skills in an organized, step-by-step method that will have you playing with a new sense of strength and confidence. You'll learn to move freely around the neck using a variety of easy chord inversions along with licks, slides, hammer-ons and bass runs, all while maintaining the steady thumb rhythm that gives this style its ear-catching appeal. 

By the time you've completed this course you'll be picking show-stopping arrangements of I Am a Pilgrim, Deep River Blues, Louis Collins, Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out and Step It Up and Go.

This program is available for viewing either with a Roots Channel subscription or as a standalone purchase.
