2001 - taught by Norman Blake, 90 minutes, incl. music and tab, ten stellar songs and instrumentals. On this fascinating DVD, Norman Blake shows you, up close, the elements that make his guitar playing singulary beautiful and unique.
Expanding on the basics he covered in his first Homespun lesson, he teaches ten original and traditional songs and instrumentals selected from his vast repertoire, each one featuring his trademark flatpick-and-fingers style. To this he adds crosspicking, drones, string-hopping, ornaments, bass lines, slides and other means of making a solid instrumental statement. Norman demonstrates his powerful back-up technique, and discusses "how to do the most with the least," which he brings to bear on these masterful arrangements.
