In this Homespun series, Woody Mann delivers an extraordinary course teaching new repertoire along with fretboard concepts that give an in-depth understanding of how to build great fingerstyle guitar arrangements.

At the same time, you’ll learn ten foundational tunes covering country blues, gospel, and jazz-inflected originals from Rev. Gary Davis, Lonnie Johnson, Eddie Lang, and other greats.

Woody’s own compositions incorporate chord melodies, syncopations, double stops, bass harmonies, and other important techniques.

He deconstructs each piece and provides a virtual toolbox of techniques that will build a true understanding of your instrument.

His “piano style” approach to fingerpicking—the thumb emulating the bass notes and the fingers playing the melody—will help you develop a true “two-handed” style on the guitar.

You’ll learn “Hudson River Boogie,” “Sunset Lake Rag,” “It Is No Secret What God Can Do,” “Destruction in This Land,” “Lonnie’s Tune,” “And Three Not Four,” “Death Don’t Have No Mercy,” “I Will Be Alright,” “A Little Love and Kiss,” and “Mean Old World.”

Among guitarists and critics, Woody Mann is considered a modern master. While the blues are his touchstone, he seems to draw inspiration from every direction, blending a myriad of influences with ease and grace. Pioneering guitar legend John Fahey said it well: “You can hear classical, jazz and blues approaches somehow converging into a single sparkling sound – a sound completely his own. Woody takes a fresh approach to his blues re-creations and his own compositions defy category. If there was a category simply called ‘great music’ Woody’s music would belong there.
