Special This Month

Easy Flatpicking Guitar Arrangements
A Song for Every Holiday
Level: All

Steve Kaufman has come up with another winner! He has chosen eleven well-known and much-loved songs, each one associated with an important season or holiday. This lesson was made especially for beginning and early-intermediate level players. Most of the songs are easy enough to play almost immediately, but Steve throws in enough material to challenge you and, with some practicing, bring you to the next level of guitar achievement. More importantly, each piece has specific guitar techniques associated with it, so that learning them will not only increase your repertoire but will add to your knowledge of the fingerboard as well.
