As David says often in the lesson, 'Fingerstyle guitar is a creative process, and there is no single right way to do things. I am always discovering new ways to play certain bits, and then wondering why it took me so long to find them. If the fingering of a passage seems difficult and you want to change it, go right ahead! Fingerings should work for the music, and for you. Above all, ragtime should be fun. Enjoy!

A detailed printed ab/music instructional booklet is included as well as a PDF file of the booklet on the DVD.

DVD is region 0, playable worldwide.
