Get ready to give your left hand a workout! Pete Huttlinger has created a "video chord library" that's a must-have for every serious guitarist. This crash course is designed to show you all the important chords and fingerings you'll need, from the easiest shapes to some challenging finger-twisters. Pete has developed a unique and effective study technique he calls "Say It and Play It". This is an powerful way to memorize root notes by playing chromatic scales and applying chords to the root location. It's like your personal GPS system on the fingerboard, helping you lock in exactly where you need to be on the neck. The lesson grows in complexity and sophistication, leading to chord changes for Sweet Georgia Brown and All Of Me, as well as tips on all kinds of music - from folk and blues to pop, country and swing. As you play exercises and progressions that make use of these positions, you'll be on your way to becoming a well-rounded guitarist with a world of chords at your fingertips.
This follow-up to one of Homespun's top-selling DVDs teaches you how to play seven more hit songs by the legendary singer-songwriter, Jim Croce. Guitarist Pete Huttlinger is faithful to the spirit of the original recordings as he breaks down the strums, picking patterns, chord progressions and other accompaniment techniques that Jim Croce devised to bring out each song's unique qualities. As an added bonus, you'll learn some of the lead intros and distinctive solos as arranged and played by Maury Muelheissen, Jim's long-time lead guitarist and extraordinary "one man band."
Jim Croce is one of the most beloved singer-songwriters in the history of American popular music. His timeless songs, with their compelling melodies, strong story lines and unique guitar arrangements, are instantly recognizable, easy to learn and fun to play.
