Excellent learning resource
D.B. Satzine | Raleigh NC USA | 01/30/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Lots of good ideas here to help improve your playing. You should have at least 6 months experience to approach this material, as it is a techniques video and assumes you already have the basics down in first position along with a few patterns or finger style songs. If thats the case and you are an independent learner then you will find this very enjoyable. Very good for the independent learner."
Good stuff from Pete
Jim Curry Sr. | Cynthiana, KY United States | 09/15/2006

"In contrast to a couple of the other reviewers, I found this DVD - as well as each of the others that Pete has done (all of which I also own) to be great learning. Since this DVD is mostly 'exercises' (other than the final piece that he teaches you), it can and probably should be a bit boring - but that is what learning is all about. I highly recommend this DVD for early-to-mid level guitarists as invaluable information, both on exercising and also on how to practice to improve your skills."
Another Homespun Classic!

"If you want to learn fingerstyle guitar, you will find no better instructors than the ones at Homespun. Pete Huttlinger and Happy Traum are simply the best to learn from. As to Pete's teaching:

Pete insists upon proper practice, proper technique, and discipline. Pete is able to draw the comparison to weight lifting for an athlete. The proper form, though may not seem so impressive, and may be slow, will yield the best results over time. Short cuts may impress people at first, but will leave the athelete incomplete; and the guitar player is no different.

Pete is one of the rare people that remain humble inspite of being in possession of such a rare gift. His teaching is to be taken slowly. Purchasing one of his DVDs is like signing up for 6 months worth of guitar lessons. It represents excellence at an incredible value.

Pete's John Denver songs are wonderful. He is unashamedly a fan of Denver, and many people who only knew the hit songs will be amazed at how talented Denver was as a guitarist.

This is for an intermediate and above, but if you are an "advanced beginner" who is unafraid to practice slowly, methodically, and carefully, grab the DVD and take 12 months to learn it. It will be more valuable than you could imagine. See his other DVDs here, as well as Happy Traum's and the Homespun catalog for the best musical instruction in the business.

When you find something of such value as the Homespun DVDs....sell what you have to purchase and cherish them. Pete Huttlinger is an extraordinary teacher!"
