Editorial Reviews

The great Canadian singer/songwriter Gordon Lightfoot has written some of the most beautiful and enduring songs of our time. His soulful voice and rich guitar accompaniments have made him a true legend in the folk and pop music pantheon. Master guitarist Pete Huttlinger has the rare ability to hear all the nuances in Gordon Lightfoot s guitar arrangements. As he has done for the music of John Denver and Jim Croce, he makes them easily accessible to learning players, teaching the chord progressions, rhythms, fingerpicking patterns and soulful musical touches that help make each song a unique and powerful statement. This lesson will be a joy to intermediate guitarists who want to add these stirring songs and beautiful guitar arrangements to their repertoire: Early Morning Rain, Carefree Highway, Rainy Day People, Circle of Steel, Steel Rail Blues, Bitter Green, If You Could Read My Mind, Cold on the Shoulder.

Huttlinger is obviously a first-class award winning guitarist; and his DVDs has shown that he is a good guitar teacher. Easy going, nice demeanor, humble, and with a good sense of humor, his DVDs are priceless lessons with a master. However, something about this DVD is a bit different than the others.

Here, Pete slows down, take his time, and like a truly gifted teacher, he seems to now anticipate students' mistakes, or in the least, students' stumbling points. His arrangements are now done with the student in mind, more than just the excellence of the music.

Pete has grown as a teacher, which is obvious to those of us who collect his DVDs and train by them. One can only hope that he will continue his career, not simply as a player, but, in time, more and more as a teacher. He is terrific.

What a great DVD series that could come from Pete coupled with Happy Traum.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gift for Aspiring Guitarists September 22, 2008
Verified Purchase
This is a gift for those guitarists who, like me, have played Gordon Lightfoot for years but never quite "got it right". Lightfoot always sounded so simple yet Pete shows it is a little more complex than that.

Pete's style is very casual, easy going yet you can tell he has almost a reverence for the music. But as you might guess from his list of awards he is a very, very good instrumentalist. It's no wonder John Denver sounded so good with this guy backing him up! Pete displays absolutely no ego whatsoever which is impressive from a guitarist this talented. No fancy riffs to show you who's boss and that are so common on many instructional videos. He makes you feel like you could actually play these songs well with a little practice.

As is typical of Homespun Productions, the technical aspects of this DVD are great. Multiple camera angles, close-ups, fades give this disc an unhurried feel. Sure you have to go back again and again but Happy Traum got the pace exactly right. It felt like he did this disc for me.

Take the advice from others that this is not a beginner's disc. Some of the chord shapes (A-form barre for instance) are a little tricky for new players but certainly give advanced beginners and particularly intermediates something to work with. I really enjoyed learning some of the solos that I will incorporate into my playing.

Seriously, if you enjoy folk music and Gordon Lightfoot as I do this is a great value. I will be buying Pete's other DVD's soon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good job August 8, 2009
Pete does a good job of breaking down Gord's songs. I would have made a few
different choices of songs, but with such a vast catalog, one can't quibble.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just one real problem with this... November 24, 2013
This is very good EXCEPT Pete seems to just assume that you can figure out his strumming pattern by just watching him full speed.
This is proving very difficult for me to do. Maybe you will be better at picking it up.

I just wish that he would have taken a few seconds to explain, even just on the first tune (Early Morning Rain). There is something in there that I'm missing.
