Michael Lee Firkins is one of the hottest players around, possessing a guitar style of incredible depth and maturity that belies his young age. On this DVD he gives a thorough and well-rounded lesson dealing with scales and routines, whammy bar effects for unique slide and pedal steel sounds, overdubbing lead harmonies and solos over a rhythm part, blues leads, tapping effects and real tapping for lightning fast runs, fingerpicking for both lead and rhythm, Jimmy Page and Joe Walsh styles, special harmonica and banjo effects, open-string tapping styles, and advanced sweeping and arpeggio techniques and exercises. This is a rare opportunity to get in on some red-hot info from a truly unique and gifted artist. You'll never miss a note! All exercises are transcribed in the accompanying booklet, corresponding to example numbers on the screen. And of course, all right- and left-hand techniques are shown close-up, with special split-screen effects, so you can closely observe and learn all the subtleties the top players are known for. Michael Lee Firkins is one of the most talked-about and brilliant new talents to burst upon the music scene in a long time. His combination of rootsy sound and influence coupled with truly modern, inventive technique and phrasing has made him a standout among his peers. Hailing from Omaha, Nebraska, he currently resides in California, where he continues to work on solo albums for the Shrapnel label.

"Thanks again for everything you've done. I couldn't have asked for any better service, nor have I received any better service. I've been treated better by you than I have the local music stores where I deal in person. You can expect to get ALL of my business from this point forward!!! Feel free to post anything I've sent you on your testimonials page. I'll be glad to write something detailing my experience, if you'd like."

"When my fiancé told me he wanted an acoustic guitar for his birthday, I had no idea how I was going to pull it off. However, this site made it very easy for me. It is very easy to find what you are looking for and the "related items" helped me pick out some accessories. I did experience a problem when it came to shipping. One of my items was reported as delivered by UPS. But when I contacted ActiveMusician, they sent out another stand right away, and it still arrived in time! I have nothing but good things to say about this site, and I have already started telling everyone about them!"
