Each tune is performed in full and then explained. This is followed by the piece being played slowly on a split screen, allowing the student to see both the right and left hand movements.

Another classic from Ernie Hawkins on Rev. Gary Davis. If you are a fan of the Rev. Gary Davis, or if you are just a fan of the blues and would love to learn some very unique songs and fingerstyle play, this is a terrific opportunity to spend many hours with a master player and teacher... Hawkins does a great job teaching the various works of Rev. Gary Davis, so do a search here at Amazon on some of the other offerings from Hawkins, which also have 5 Star ***** ratings for excellence. Between his slow, methodical teaching, his easy going personality, terrific selection of songs, and skilled camera work, you are purchasing months of "personal" lessons with one of our country's best teachers of acoustic guitar. – Peter Hyatt/Amazon Customer Review
