The Homespun DVD Learning to Flatpick From the Beginning Steve Kaufman delivers a "101-level" beginner's course that details all the essential bluegrass flatpicking techniques. Steve gets new players off to a great start by covering both lead and chord playing. He explains how to get good clarity in picking and fretting. Includes music and tablature.

Level 1: Novice-No prior experience on your instrument is necessary. The instructor starts with the assumption that this is your very first lesson.

Steve Kaufman's comprehensive "101" level course lays down all the groundwork needed to really dig into the flatpicking style. He starts at the beginning, with close-up examinations of how to hold and use the pick, the distinctions between lead and chord playing and how to get good clarity from your hand positions.

Steve introduces you to a variety of essential techniques and skills, concentrating on the pick and the finer points of strumming and accompanying vocals. His detailed instruction will help you develop your mastery of ringing and sustain notes, hammer-ons, pull-offs, note bending, C runs and other skills.

With this method you get ample opportunity to advance at your own pace. You'll play along with Steve on slow renditions of popular flatpicking tunes, gradually working up to regular speed.
