Product Overview


James Nash is a guitarist who likes to take it to the edge, bringing a rock n roll sensibility to the acoustic guitar. That's what he does when he plays with his ambitious roots-rock band, The Waybacks, and he breaks down those formidable picking skills into accessible lessons for guitar players of all levels in this Homespun music instruction series.

James has amazing chops and he knows how to help you improve yours, providing building blocks to become a freer and more creative player with unique right and left hand exercises, rhythm patterns, major and minor scale strategies for covering the fingerboard, play-along jam segments, and much more.

From concepts like the Groove Center to electric guitar string bending techniques adapted to the acoustic, from Keith Richards and Neil Young rhythm exercises to improvisations over chord progressions of Bob Dylan and The Beatles, James shows you how to bring excitement and personality into your playing. And not forgetting his traditional roots, he turns Cherokee Shuffle and Blackberry Blossom into powerful vehicles for innovation and creativity.

The goal is to get the exercises into your ear and brain so you can just clear your mind, play, and have fun with the instrument... Watch "Making the Acoustic Guitar Rock" today!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from If you're electric don't let acoustic stop you. I loved this DVD. James is an excellent speaker, you're always looking forward to the next lesson. One tip regarding holding a pick (2 ways) is what I now use. "Lots" of tips over 17 chapters (wish there were more).
