Duck Baker is considered to be one of today’s finest fingerstyle swing guitarists. In this lesson he teaches the basics of how to put that "swing" in to your playing. This is not a lesson for beginners. Duck presumes that you can already fingerpick using an alternating bass technique in the style of Mississippi John Hurt or Chet Atkins. Duck shows you how to expand this style and take it to a different level so that you can fingerpick swing tunes. Along the way he explains and explores rhythm chords and changes that you will need to incorporate in to your playing.
Four well known tunes from the swing repertoire are taught and the arrangements are fully explained phrase by phrase. Each arrangement is then illustrated on a split-screen that clearly shows what each hand is performing. This lesson will help you develop your own individual technique for playing fingerstyle swing guitar.
Titles include: Redwing, I Got Rhythm, Bei Mier Bist Du Schoen and Never Swat A Fly
