Acoustic Guitar Legends: John Fahey & More!
Up first is a John Fahey lesson. You can read it online and watch the video lessons here:
Acoustic Guitar: Acoustic Guitar Legends: John Fahey Lesson
That covers the American Primitive.
Next up is Mississippi John Hurt, that covers the blues! Who doesn't want to learn to play like John Hurt? Acoustic Guitar: Acoustic Guitar Legends: Mississippi John Hurt Lesson
Acoustic Guitar: Acoustic Guitar Legends: Paco de Lucía Lesson How about that head stock with the friction tuning pegs? Sweet!
That covers my favorites but AG isn't done, there's also lessons in the style of Norman Blake, Ani DiFranco and Paul Simon.
And look! A review of "Beyond Berkeley Guitar!" Acoustic Guitar: Various Artists, Beyond Berkeley Guitar
It's nice to see an issue of AG with so much Fahey and Fahey-related material in it.
And since the holidays are fast approaching there's a nice arrangement of "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear" by Happy Traum with a free TAB download. Acoustic Guitar: It Came Upon a Midnight Clear
By the way, I'm not getting anything to hawk AG magazine. I just thought this was an exceptional issue that you might be interested in.
