Includes the book Fingerpicking Styles for Guitar (HL14033954) and the DVD Easy Steps to Fingerpicking Guitar (HL00641546), in one money-saving pack! The book combines two previous titles, Fingerpicking Styles for Guitar and Traditional and Contemporary Guitar Fingerpicking Styles to commemorate 40 years since their original publication. Happy Traum's landmark transcriptions represent the music of twenty-two musicians from Virginia, North Carolina, Kentucky, as well as England, the Bahamas and Africa. Every song is presented in notation and tab, with biographical information. In the DVD you will develop the ability to maintain a rock-steady rhythmic pulse with your thumb while picking out off-the-beat melody notes with your fingers - a holy grail of country, folk and blues playing. Drawing on four decades of teaching experience, Happy Traum has devised this nearly foolproof method. The simple children's song Skip to My Lou helps teach the basic concepts before getting into fingerpicking standards such as: Spike Driver's Blues · Green, Green Rocky Road · Staggerlee · Nine Pound Hammer · Hobo's Lullaby.

"I ordered drums for my 13-year-old grandaughter for Christmas. They were ordered on December 21st. I thought there was no way she'd get them in time for Christmas and probably not before New Year's Day. To my surprise, she called us on December 23rd and said she'd already received them. Now that is amazing service. The drums are beautiful and she's estatic! We will surely be ordering more musical equipment in this coming year. Another thing. I'd gone to the local music store which carries lots of equipment and they were out of the drums I wanted to purchase. I got online and found activemusician.com and was able to find the drums I wanted and in a color I wanted. Hats off to your good service and good products."
