Solid instruction material 20 novembre 2004
Par Raj - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Fingerstyle is an obscure genre. It baffles many guitar buffs since there are hardly any established tutorials. I've been obsessed with this style ever since I heard the likes of Robert Johnson, Doc Waston, Leo Kottke etc.

Having scanned the web I purchased three books -

Beginning Fingerstyle Blues - Arnie Berle (the one in question)

Art of Contemporary Travis Picking - Mark Hanson

Art of Solo Fingerpicking - Mark Hanson

It only makes sense to compare these books since in addition to money, we are investing time. Choosing the right book would save you lot of time, and much exasperation. Beginning Fingerstyle Blues is one of the finest guitar instruction tutorials I've come across. The instruction is lucid and the approach very logical. The book takes you step by step through fingerstyle blues building up your right hand ability (and confidence) to the extent where you can play and sing (oh yes!) the blues with relative ease, only after 12-18 months of dedicated practice. 12 months is a fairly short period as fingerstyle tunes can get rather complicated. I've always been impatient when receiving instructions and tend to skip a section or two so as to reach the end ASAP. But this book kept me engaged throughout as it made me believe that everything was achievable, as long as I tried and didn't deceive myself. I rate it five stars, for the instruction and for keeping me hooked throughout (after all learning should be fun!). Like the others have said it also contains 5 full pieces at the end to add to your repertoire, which clearly is a bonus.

The books by Mark Hanson are equally profound in content and tutoring. Mark's books score a point or two above the rest of the fingerstyle books as he (Mark) gives very clear instruction regarding right hand placement, how many fingers to use, pinky finger placement, whether or not to use thumbpicks/fingerpicks and many other finer points which you will require answers to once you immerse yourself in fingerstyle guitar. There are awfully few competent sources who can give you these answers. You will not find these details in Beginning Fingerstyle Blues. It left me confused initially but thanks to Mark's books I figured the right way out.

Many of you may be confused about which books to buy so that you do NOT regret in 12 months time; after you have put in your best and expect returns. Having owned 8 fingerstyle books and 4 fingerstyle instruction videos, I strongly recommend Beginning Fingerstlye Blues and The Art of Contemporary Travis Picking. If you cannot buy both books for any reason, pick either and buy the other in a year's time. You will not need any video instructions if you have these two books. These two are the very best out there and I don't see any books better than these, in the fingerstyle genre. They both share common grounds such as:

1. Both cater to absolute beginners - you can manage even if you cannot change chords confidently

2. Both focus on Travis Picking (alternate bass with melody) which is quintessential to fingerstyle guitar

3. You will be a fairly advanced fingerstyle player after having successfully completed either book

In my opinion no book is bad. You will get to learn something or the other from every book. But there are very few that are jewels - these two books undoubtedly are. There is a reason both these books have been rated 5 stars; they work wonderfully well and the results they provide are truly fulfilling.

Buy This Book 13 décembre 2001
Par Big Dave - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is an excellent introduction to playing acoustic blues guitar because;
1. It assumes virtually no knowledge of the instrument to begin with.
2. The exercises are gradated, slowly adding additional chords and keys and more complex picking patterns.
3. The exercises are designed to teach you to move your thumb independently from your fingers. This gives you that great "wow, it sounds like two guitars!" effect.
4. The accompanying CD, while not always perfectly indexed to the book (I think it must have been a cassette first), allows you to hear a very skilled player playing the exercises and pieces.
5. The culmination of the exercises is a collection of five real pieces, including songs by Robert Johnson and Willie Brown. These pieces are stylistically different from each other and require you to stretch a bit beyond what you've learned in the exercises, with the result that together they make a nice little blues repertoire.
Decide today to (get better) on the guitar -- buy this book.

Great introduction book to learning fingerstyle blues! 28 juin 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is a great book because it breaks down the process of learning acoustic (fingerstyle) blues step-by-step, and shows you how to play the blues in the old Mississippi-blues and other related styles. It starts off with beginner techniques such as learning how to play an alternating bass, combining the thumb with the fingers, playing chords with this thumb/finger picking pattern, maintaining a steady rhythm, playing different beats, and moves into more complicated playing involving melody and blues notes, fretting hand techniques, picking hand techniques, different chord shapes, vamps, and singing the blues. The end of the book then contains 5 blues pieces: M&O Blues, Beekman Blues, Big Road Blues, 32-20 Blues, and Black Rat Blues.
The CD is a great accompaniment, because it allows you to hear the examples in the book, and really *listen* for that blues feel.
I highly recommend this book!

Toward intermediate blues playing.. 18 octobre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This is an excellent introduction to intermediate blues playing for beginning fingerstyle guitarists. Unlike many books, this one takes you slowly through the basic techniques you need to build ability. THis is good, because this music can be complicated to play - it should take time to learn. The book, by going in small steps, is engaging. Also the CD is very releaxed and contains complimentary commentary to that in the book - very much like a teacher sitting in the room with you. I only had two complaints. One is that the book did not use the full rhythmic TAB notation, instead relying on the standard notion which runs in parallel with the TAB (all exercises are given in both TAB and standard). The second complaint was that the "blues note" was not introduced until the middle of the book. Thus it took about 6 weeks for me to work up to the blues sound, rather than the straight 'folksy' sound. Not bad in retrospect, but it felt like a long time. I expect to complete the book in another month or so, when I fully expect to be able to play the Robert Johnson and other tunes at the back of the book. Its a fun book, worth every penny.

not my favorite way to learn the blues 13 octobre 2010
Par John M. Miller - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I bought this book when I began learning fingerstyle, because of all the positive reviews. I can see how it could help you learn blues guitar, as it is organized in a very step-by-step manner. But I ultimately found it boring and stopped working with this book about 1/4 of the way through. Almost the entire book is comprised of exercises rather than songs--I guess you could call the exercises "songs," but for the most part they aren't musically compelling. Only at the end, at a pretty advanced level, do you get something that feels like real blues. The exercises are challenging for a beginner, and they do help build technique, but for me the discipline required to learn the techniques was too much in relation to the fairly weak musical payoff. Compare this to the approach of Stefan Grossman, who also organizes all of his teaching materials (book/CD combos and DVD's) to teach step-by-step buildup of techniques, but who starts right in with versions of real blues songs that are very fun and rewarding to play. If you are interested in learning blues and have a little experience fingerpicking, I highly recommend Grossman's materials (the DVD Fingerpicking Guitar Techniques is a good place to start). If you are brand new to fingerpicking, I recommend Mark Hanson's Book/CD combo The Art of Contemporary Travis Picking. It doesn't focus on the blues (the repertoire is a mix of folk music and blues in its more folky aspects), but it focuses on alternating-bass fingerpicking that you will need for many blues styles (such as Mississippi John Hurt), it begins with very basic techniques and builds step-by-step, and right from the start you are playing real songs. Once you're halfway or so through that book, you'll be ready to tackle the Grossman DVD. This path will get you to the same endpoint as Berle and Galbo, but with a lot more fun along the way.
