can learn how to play this with Tim Sparks' ROOTS RAGS

details here...

The collection of tunes on ROOTS RAGS & BLUES finds Tim Sparks returning to his own roots, the music he learned growing up in rural North Carolina. It was a world of tobacco fields, fire-breathing itinerant preachers, cornbread and collard greens, bluegrass and barbecue, moonshine on Saturday night and rapturous
gospel singing on Sunday morning...and the country blues that seemed to come right up from the earth, out of the sun-baked, red clay Piedmont bottom land.

Tim Sparks plays and explains new and original versions of three classic fingerstyle standards: Willie Brown's Mississippi Blues, Scott Joplin's Maple Leaf Rag and The Victory Rag, made famous by Mother Maybelle Carter. In addition, he does a country gospel workout on Amazing Grace, shows some New Orleans style on the Original Jelly Roll Blues and finishes with a Klezmer classic recorded in the 1920's, Tanst Yiddlekh.

Everything is presented using a fast-learning, cognitive approach featuring interactive video which shows both picking and fretting hand simultaneously.

The Acoustic Guitar Workshop specialises in acoustic guitar tuition, presenting packages on CDROM using computer friendly video formats, tablature, mp3... in fact everything the guitar student needs for a rewarding e-learning experience. ROOTS RAGS & BLUES is their latest production and is the fruit of much labour and collaboration with Tim Sparks, one of the leading exponents of fingerstyle guitar on the scene today.
