An Entire Course on Fingerstyle by America's Finest Teacher

"You can see other reviews on this DVD set in the DVDs that are sold individually, though this is obviously a good savings.
This is, perhaps, the finest fingerstyle lessons available on DVD. Happy Traum is a gifted teacher, warm personality, and one who's love of music is contagious. The camera work is impeccible; Happy moves slowly, challenging the student; and builds progressively.
I liken this to an entire College Course on Fingerstyle guitar. The songs are great, and this 3 DVD set, depending upon your level of guitar playing, may wind up being, literally, MONTHS of "private" guitar lessons with a teacher who has played with the best of them; including Bob Dylan.
If you work your way through the 3DVD set and learn the songs....learn, not master, because you will be building your own style, you will be an accomplished player so much so that others will enjoy your playing.
I simply cannot say enough about this set, or about Happy Traum's teaching. Everything he touches seems to turn to gold. After working through this series, I have purchased everything I can by him, or even recommended by him. He is that good. Do an Amazon.com search on Happy Traum, as well as Artie Traum (his brother; an excellent teacher in hiw own right) and save thousands on lessons."

"These videos are a great way to learn alternate thumb style picking. I would highly recommend them to anybody interested in this style of guitar playing."
