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. Everything played during the split screen segments is transcribed and presented in a PDF tab/music booklet that is on the DVD lesson. Bonus audio tracks are included on our Country Blues lessons.

In my lesson Fingerpicking Blues Guitar Arrangements in Vestapol Tuning (GW1011) I explored various blues ideas, arrangements and techniques in the Open D Tuning. In this new lesson we go beyond the blues with five arrangements that span a Country song (Tennessee Waltz), Pop (Bob Dylan's Buckets of Rain and the Beatles' In My Life), an Old-Time banjo tune (Waterbound) and a funky downhome Delta blues (Como Blues).

One of the reasons guitar is such a beautiful instrument is because of all the choices in sound there are. It can also be overwhelming with all the options that the fretboard has for us. Vinny Raniolo shares with you an interesting perspective using a technique that will give you the tools to play solid rhythm guitar, apply it to songs and then play songs in any key! In this lesson he will guide you through a 3 note per string approach that is clear and accessible for guitarists of all levels. Have fun challenging yourself and enjoy each strum!
