Fingerpicking Greenwich Village
During the late fifties and early sixties college-age kids - and a few hip adults - were reviving old-time, traditional music. What started as a bunch of amateur guitar players trying to figure out the songs from the '78s soon grew into somewhat of a movement. During this time not only were musicians who were long thought to be dead being rediscovered, but their followers were now taking up the cause and creating their own songs in those styles.
I took some of my favorite songs from some of my favorite players and arranged them here for you. These songs are but a small part of what was being played in those days and I hope you'll have as much fun learning them as I had to put them together for you, with variations thrown in of course!!
Not only will you learn the following songs, I'll also show you how to add all kinds of variations to them. In doing so you'll learn how to be a more creative guitarist.
Bottle Of Wine - Tom Paxton
Don't Think Twice, It's Alright - Bob Dylan
My Creole Bell - Mississippi John Hurt
Green Green Rocky Road - Dave Van Ronk
Moving To Kansas City - Brownie McGee
