This new DVD from Flatpicking Guitar features Blue Highway guitarist Tim Stafford is a comprehensive overview of critical techniques for acoustic, steel string guitar. The DVD release is a re-edited and remastered version of the original VHS release, which was largely overlooked in that now nearly obsolete format.
Acoustic Guitar Fundamentals is a video presentation of Tim’s treatise on the Five T’s – Tuning, Timing, Tone, Technique, and Taste. These are the elements that separate the best from the rest, and allow even a novice or amateur player to develop a sense of authority over the instrument and the music they play.
Each of the “T’s” is covered in detail, with Tim explaining the concepts and then offering practical examples of how to incorporate a study of them into your practice routine. The material is very well organized and explained clearly with topic reviews after each section.
Tim’s mastery of the guitar and the flatpicking style is unchallenged – both as a soloist and a member of the rhythm section. His advice for other pickers is as valuable as his contributions to the music as a performer.
