  • Intended for intermediate guitar players, this instructional program teaches the fingerpicking techniques that have made Kelly Joe Phelps legendary in acoustic circles. Phelps shows viewers how to create unique (often improvised) arrangements through use of texture, rhythm, offbeat chord formations, blues-inspired scales, and guitar licks. Beginning in standard tuning, Phelps plays "Tommy," and a delta style blues song called "Sally Ruby." From here, the songs increase in difficulty, as Phelps performs the originals "Capman Bootman," "Beggar's Oil," "River Rat Jimmy," and the traditional number, "I am the Light of this World," by Rev. Gary Davis. Phelps gives new life to the latter (which he plays in open G tuning), by rearranging it with new guitar and vocal parts. By playing with chord and tuning variations, Phelps demonstrates that the possibilities are endless when it comes to re-imagining existing pieces of music.
