    You’ve been at the guitar for a while but now you want to get out and play  at an open mic or even in a professional performance. You need to develop a set, get your playing chops together, build a repertoire and acquire the skills needed to get your songs and guitar instrumentals across to an audience.

    In two hours of solid instruction, Steve Kaufman provides invaluable drills, licks, scales, chords and exercises to help with your guitar technique, plus solid advice that will get you primed for solo performing.

    You’ll learn arrangements to ten beautiful and challenging tunes in a variety of acoustic genres - folk, country, bluegrass, Celtic and a “show tune” - that range from easy- to advanced-intermediate levels. Steve teaches primarily in his trademark flatpicking style, but he includes two fingerpicking pieces as well. Throughout, he guides you through the finer points of playing, arranging and performing each of the tunes.

    Flatpicking: Amazing Grace. The Water is Wide, Randall Collins, Lament for Lowrie O'da Lea, Blue Ridge Mountain Blues, Celtic Medley, Alabama Jubilee, June Apple.
    Fingerpicking: Freight Train and Grandfather's Clock.
