"If you are a beginner who knows the chords already, you will really enjoy this DVD. However, if you have been playing awhile, and are an advanced beginner or an intermediate AND you grew up with no knowledge of country or blue grass (me!) you will also love this DVD. Playing Dylan, Beatles, etc, I never knew country or blue grass music. This introductory DVD is really great to show you some of the basic songs, plus a few of the well-known (to the country world) strumming, bass notes and bass run. This DVD is really easy to follow and I found it to be a very useful but fun lesson. It is not complicated and it won't take but a few weeks to finish, but it is a great part of your guitar instruction library. It has introduced me to bluegrass music, which I now possess a new-found respect for."

"I've been strumming for 15 years and decided to get serious and learn some basic techniques that I'd never learned. This dvd was perfect in jump-starting my ability to play better.
On this dvd Happy Traum assumes that you know the basic chords but not much else. He starts with tuning, quickly moves to how to hold a flatpick, and moves on to basic techniques such as alternating bass. Before I knew it, I was playing some folk tunes really well. Even though I've been playing for quite some time, I learned some basics that I should have learned when I first started. Happy Traum is a fantastic teacher and this dvd was worth every penny. I was so thrilled with my progress that I bought his fingerstyle dvds and they are great, too. Highly recommended to the begginer or those, like me, who never took time to really learn basic technique."
