This fun and easy book with audio introduces you to bluegrass guitar from the very beginning. You will learn right and left-hand techniques, basic chords and 18 great songs, painlessly by reading notes! Anyone can do it. Steve Kaufman's method and approach to note reading is so simple that 4-year old's have done it. Steve begins by teaching songs using just four notes. He then systematically adds a few more notes at a time bundled with easy-to-understand instructions and songs so that, in a short time– you will know all the notes, chords and strumming patterns needed to play hundreds of songs. This is a perfect primer for many of Steve's best sellers as well as for books by other authors. Includes access to online audio.
