Gospel Music is such a familiar part of our cultural and musical landscape that it offers the fingerstyle guitarist a vast repertoire of melodic and lyrical compositions. In this lesson, Duck Baker explores and explains how this music can be arranged for fingerstyle guitar. Duck teaches arrangements of six well-known Gospel songs which he plays in standard and dropped-D tunings.
A practical, informative and very useful lesson to expanding your fingerstyle technique to incorporate playing Gospel music in the styles of Mississippi John Hurt or Elizabeth Cotton.
Duck gives a historical background on each tune as well as phrase by phrase and step by step explanations of the arrangements.
The DVD comes with a 24 page tab/music PDF booklet, and each tune is illustrated in a split screen section making it easy to see what the right and left hands are playing.
