Pat Donohue is a natural entertainer who possesses bundles of charm and wit. Concerts by this St. Paul, MN resident are a model for combining playfulness with pure craftsmanship. A masterful guitarist and talented singer-songwriter of blues, folk, and jazz, Donohue inhabits his songs, performing them with equal parts of skilled technique and raw emotion. His excellent guitar chops offer a balance of gentle, sensuous strumming and a deeper, bluesy touch. His devotion to acoustic guitar has made him an American standard, as he echoes the tones of Robert Johnson, Blind Blake, Merle Travis or Muddy Waters. Chet Atkins called Pat one of the greatest fingerpickers in the world today; Leo Kottke called his playing "haunting."

In this lesson Pat teaches five of his original tunes. Besides being great songs the arrangements offer the guitarist a panorama of techniques and styles. From the syncopated stumbling bass of Blind Blake to the sophisticated country alternating bass of Chet Atkins. From a swing jazz accompaniment to a blues with echoes of the Irish Washerwoman! There are lots of enjoyable and challenging guitar ideas that Pat explains and teaches phrase by phrase, followed by the arrangement played slowly on a split screen so that you can carefully study both his left and right hands. A detailed PDF tab booklet of the arrangements can be found on the DVD.

Titles include: The Road to Kingdom Come, Stealin' from Chet, Jazz Names, Buddy the Blues and the Irish Blues.
