2017 marks our 50th year of producing music instruction in a variety of media for learning players all levels! Some of you are newcomers to Homespun (Welcome!) but many have been with us almost since the beginning. A few will remember the reel-to-reel tapes, audio cassettes, VHS and BETA video and other older technologies that we have gone through over the years. We thank all of you profusely for being a part of our quest to make the very best in roots music instruction through the years and decades.
Warm regards to all,
Happy and Jane Traum and the Homespun Team
"Your Cheatin' Heart" Taught by Toby Walker
This very accessible and easy-to-learn song is from Toby's popular "Fingerpicking Hank Williams" DVD and download. You can choose how complicated you want your arrangements to get. Hank Williams’ tunes are simple enough for easy strumming and perfect for more advanced alternate-thumb Travis-style picking, so there's something here for everyone. Check it out.
New For Mandolin Players - "Mandolin Licks-ercises!"
Improving your mandolin technique does not have to employ mind-numbing drills and exercises. Dix Bruce shows you licks, solos, kick-offs, endings and complete tunes that will hone your skills so that even near-beginners can use them in real-life playing situations.
