5.0 out of 5 stars Another Classic from Homespun! July 30, 2010
Another classic from one of America's foremost acoustic guitar teacher, Happy Traum.

Here, Happy challenges us to not simply learn some classic "Mountain Music" songs, but to learn how to improvise for ourselves. This DVD teaching, therefore, works for beginner to intermediate players.

The songs chosen include classics such as "The Cuckoo" and "Poor Wayfaring Stranger" and are all beautifully arranged with clear TAB (including chords).

The camera work is what has now become standard for Homespun: clear close ups, asthetically appealing background and color, beautiful guitar and the methodical, step by step "line upon line; precept upon precept" methodology practiced by experienced teachers.

The value of these lessons approaches priceless, as it enables each of us to "invite" a nationally known instructor into our "living rooms" for private lessons.

As is my custom with great DVD lessons, I need to be comfortable with the persona of the instructor as each DVD means hours of time "spent with" the instructor. Thankfully, Happy's personality is humble, enthusiastic, and understanding. He anticipates struggles, slows down, and picks up the pace perfectly for a challenge. This is a characteristic and trait of gifted teachers.

With the pause button at the ready, this set will provide many hours of quality and "personal" instruction into beautiful, timeless acoustic Americana music. Enjoy! It is a "must" in every acoustic guitarist's library.
