In a tribute to Chet Atkins, he shows the chord inversions, vibrato, hammers, pulls and multiple variations that are reminiscent of Chet's distinctive sound. Blues players will dig into Steve's groove-oriented showpieces, while fans of his ballads will enjoy playing his more melodic material.
Switching to his acoustic/electric Takamine signature model (the Steve Wariner 341), Steve adds his distinctive touches to a medley of fingerpicking gems, featuring traditional alternating bass rhythm with treble melody lines.
Throughout this session, Steve's focus on scales, banjo-like rolls, bluesy licks and picking techniques will help you build speed, fluidity and an arsenal of exciting ideas. The songs you'll be playing include "Baby I'm Yours," "Prelude/Practice Your Scales Somewhere Else," "For Chester B.," "Sails," "Next March," "I Should Be With You," "Back Home in Indiana" and "Copper Kettle."
Special DVD features include: Stereo, Enclosed Tab.
