Get back to your Roots! Learn the songs, techniques, and musical styles that molded our American Musical Traditions. People have been crafting musical instruments from found objects for thousands of years. These instruments spawned the musical roots of Blues, Traditional, Folk, and Gospel genres in a very literal way, because the original innovators of these genres generally started playing on homemade instruments like the One String Diddley Bow and 3-String Guitar. Because of this, roots instruments informed the approach that these musicians took... So if you want to play roots music, you need to learn how to play roots instruments! For centuries music was passed down from one person to another in the folk tradition. One person would play and explain a song, riff, or style, imparting the knowledge needed to perform the piece to another. Learning in this traditional way improves the student's ear and gets them thinking about music as MUSIC, not as notes on paper. This is the approach that Justin takes to teaching the songs, riffs, and techniques in this DVD Series. In other words, you will learn music the way that the Roots music pioneers learned... person-to-person and note-by-note! 3-STRING GUITAR CHAPTERS Chapter 1 Opening Credits Chapter 2 Intro to the 3-String •How to Hold the 3-String •Tuning Chapter 3 •Flatpicking vs. Fingerpicking •How to Hold the Guitar Pick Chapter 4 •Play Anything with One Finger •Simplifying Chords Chapter 5 "House of the Rising Sun" One-Finger Arrangement •Tips to Barring Chords Chapter 6 "House of the Rising Sun" Smoke & Mirrors Arrangement •Adding Dynamics & Vibrato Chapter 7 "Amazing Grace" Chord/Melody Arrangement •Pull-Off Technique •Adding Harmonics Chapter 8 "You Gotta Move" •Slide Guitar •Slide Vibrato •Palm Muting •Rhythm/Lead Fingerpicking Chapter 9 Helpful Resources Chapter 10 Closing Credits.
