Great beginner blues DVD
C. Sabick | vermont | 09/09/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a wonderful product for folks like me who are just starting their exploraton of the blues. Happy does a great job with the basics and then piles on a lot of variations and tricks that make even the most basic 12-bar sound fun and interesting. I would certainly recommend it for novices. More advanced players might skip the beginning and move on to Disc 2 but this is a great foundation for beginners."
Another fine Homespun product!

"Great DVD for those who already know how to play basic guitar chords and want to learn the blues. From the first 15 minutes, Happy will have you playing 12 bar blues and begins to show little "secrets" that sound quite impressive, though not difficult to play. Happy's enthusiasm for acoustic blues is contagious and if you have already learned to play basic guitar chords, you are ready for this DVD. It is like having expensive lessons in your home. Play the DVD for 15 minutes; shut it off, and practice every day. After a few days, turn it on for the next segement, and repeat. Some of the DVDs are quite easy, where as others may require more practice between "lessons". If you do not know the basic guitar chords and wish to learn, Homespun has many other excellent products, including David Hamburger's Acoustic Guitar Method, vol 1 and 2. Homespun DVDs make it possible to have terrific lessons in your own home. Affordable, well directed (you get the split screen of the right hand and the left hand), and enjoyable, I have found no better instruction for the guitar or piano than Homespun."
Superb instruction

"There are many books and dvd's out there on acoustic blues. These 2 volumes by Happy Traum are the best I've found.
Easy to follow for beginners and intermediate players, and Happy's good-natured ways will win you over.
A feel-good experience every time, whether you just watch them or practice along!!!
10 stars."
Verry nice

"As the title shows "Starting from the scratch"
Happy Traum is an excellent blues guitar teacher, he start his lesson by explaining the twelve bars variation for novice who haven't touched a guitar or know the blues before and by time his authentic explanation will lead u to be a fair blues guitar blues player.
I personally thank him for this instructional DVD; it helped me a lot to understand the basics of the blues chords variations and improve my guitar skills too.
The Main theme is Good Morning Blues he shows u how to get it all done including turn around and many other useful tips and tricks (Brownie Macghee style)
An Advise, if u are interested in the blues don't just buy it alone, try to purchase the second DVD with it "Easy Steps to Acoustic Blues Guitar -Essentials of fingerstyle blues" great instructional DVD also.
