What a great way to start a new hobby!

"I have just started to learn fingerstyle acoustic blues. I have been working out of two (2) books both found on Amazon: 1) Beginning Fingerstyle Blues Guitar by Berle and Galbo and 2) Fingerstyle Blues Songbook by Steve James - both excellent and great for the beginner. But I was getting to the point that I wanted something a little extra - some coaching that I could get into and learn from. This is the DVD lesson that will do that (for me and you!). Roy is easy going, and he makes learning fun. He starts slow and adds licks, flourishes, turn-arounds and endings and does it in a way that will have you laughing and learning and in a bit - amazed that you are doing it as well. My only comment that could even be a bit negative is in reply to his statement that he wonders why any one would want to play like him, well I understand that we need to devote time and study and having fun so that we can sound like ourselves, but Roy, it would be wonderful if we could play (and sound) just a bit like you. Highly recommended!!!!!"

"If you love acoustic blues, but don't know how to play, you've come upon a great DVD. To get started, begin with Happy Traum's Easy Blues (part 1 and part 2---) then move on to this classic, funny, self-abasing blues guitarist. Roy Book Binder is a treasure as a guitar teacher and if you only learn ONE song from this DVD, you will have learned not simply a great song, and a fun song, but more so, you will have learned to improvise and enjoy your guitar as Roy encourages you to take chances, invent, and enjoy yourself. what a treat!"
