Happy Traum, a highly experienced guitar player and instructor, teaches this lesson on basic 12-string guitar techniques. Traum began teaching others how to play the guitar in college in the late '50s and has continued to be in demand at instructional workshops and seminars ever since. This program concentrates on walking bass lines, dynamic rhythms, and full chords. Each technique is slowly demonstrated and excellent camera close-ups help by focusing on critical finger work. Viewers are provided with different options for fingerpicking so that they can begin with the styles that are easiest for them to master.
