A Lesson With Steve Earle
Guitars, Songs and Picking TechniquesDVD - 2012
Take a lesson with one of the most celebrated singer/songwriters of our time...This unique DVD gives us two hours of great songs, stories, details about Steve's guitars (he's a well-known collector) and insights into his writing process. Best of all, it provides the means to play eight of his iconic songs : Tennessee Blues, Sparkle and Shine, Ft. Worth Blues, Hometown Blues, South Nashville Blues ; This City ; Satellite Radio ; Copperhead Road. Steve's songs are primarily built around basic chords and two-finger picking technique that even novice players can pick up. He adds subtle touches, though - hammer-ons, slides, chords inversions, etc. - that bring a distinct flavor to each one. More advanced guitarists and songwriters will benefit from seeing how Steve brings intensity, poetics and a laser-like intelligence to everything he writes.
