David Bromberg has toured around the world. He has performed and recorded with some of the biggest stars of the last decades.

He is a master of many styles and techniques.
In this intimate DVD lesson, David presents some of his most popular arrangements. They vary from the folk blues Delia to the popular gospel song Just A Closer Walk With Thee to Bob Dylan's It Takes A Lot To Laugh It Takes a Train To Cry to Jerry Jeff Walker's Mr. Bojangles (featuring David's famous guitar solo). Nine great arrangements that will expand your repertoire as well as guitar playing skills. David teaches fingerpicking and flatpicking techniques.
