This DVD is the follow-up lesson to Fred Sokolow's Beginner's Fingerpicking Guitar. It presents six classic fingerpicking tunes, including solos and accompaniments, with a bluesy and country flavour. Fred plays and sings each arrangement up to speed and then slows them down explaining any unusual or difficult licks. Close-up views of both hands make it easy to learn the arrangements.
