Chris Proctor's exceptional DVD will bring your 12-String guitar playing to new levels, and will teach you challenging and beautiful instrumental solos. This course is jampacked with instruction in the use of open tunings, bottleneck/slide techniques, harmonics and string muting, as well as invaluable advice on finger picks, tuning, stringing and setting up your instrument.
Most 12-string players strike the octave and unison pairs of strings simultaneously. Chris shows you a revolutionary way of picking the twelve strings individually, using alternate thumb and finger picking with the pairs of octave and unison strings. Scales, fiddle tunes and other melodic passages can be played with flowing melody lines and shimmering, cascading tones, with a minimum of left-hand movement.
Through exercises, insights and detailed instruction, Chris helps you realize 12-string guitar's sonic power, and he enables you to play spectacular fingerstyle solos: Sailor's Hornpipe, Fisher's Hornpipe, Halfway, Bells of the Harbor, War Games, and Over the Pass.

Chris Proctor has been one of the pioneers of the contemporary fingerstyle guitar movement. He has won the National Fingerpicking Championship at the prestigious Winfield festival, and has released exceptional, well-received albums of original music on Flying Fish, Wihdham Hill and Sugarhouse Records. He's also authored numerous books, videos and magazine articles, and is on the road most of the year, interspersing workshops for Taylor Guitars with the many concerts he performs throughout the country. His compositions and arrangements on both the 6- and 12-string guitar span an amazing spectrum of folk, jazz, pop, classical, and ethnic genres.
