Doc Watson – Doc’s Guitar: Fingerpicking & Flatpicking
Sep 03 2014
This wonderful lesson with a national treasure has been re-edited and formatted for DVD. It’s now easier than ever to access the wonderful songs and instrumentals that have made Doc one of the most beloved folk artists of all time.
Doc Watson, a true master of traditional guitar styles, teaches some of the most requested fingerpicking and flatpicking tunes in his vast repertoire.
Split-screen images allow you to watch his picking and fretting hands at the same time. You’ll see and hear Doc’s guitar playing in slowed-down, close-up detail, and, with his clear explanations and demonstrations, you’ll soon be playing his definitive arrangements of “Deep River Blues,” “Blue Railroad Train,” “Bluebell,” “Windy And Warm,” “Southbound,” “Black Mountain Rag,” “Beaumont Rag,” “Georgie,” “East Tennessee Blues,” “Way Downtown,” “The Cuckoo,” “Don’t Let Your Deal Go Down” and other great folk and country songs.
As an added treat, Doc is joined in music and conversation by Pete Seeger, Mike Seeger (banjo), Kirk Sutphin (fiddle), and long-time musical partner Jack Lawrence (guitar), who adds some invaluable pointers on back-up guitar and his own excellent flatpicking style.
One of the greatest guitarist of all time. Download this one just to have a piece of American music history. You really need to have some chops to learn the material but you can garner some nice licks even if you are an advanced beginner.
