  • Irving Berlin is responsible for writing some of the best-loved songs in American music, with such recognizable names as "Puttin' on the Ritz," "White Christmas," and "A Pretty Girl is Like a Melody." His songs also translate well to guitar, and with this tutorial Fred Sokolow makes the mastery of Berlin's songs simple, manageable, and fun. Covering six songs, Fred explains how to play them instrumentally as well as a version providing backup for singing. He isolates potential trouble spots which students are apt to find more difficult, and goes over them in great detail. Fred gives demonstrations of each song at both normal speed and slowed down, presented with a split screen so viewers can observe what each hand is doing, and explains the style of chord soloing, which allows the musician to play both melody and chords at the same time. The songs covered are "Cheek to Cheek," "Say It Isn't So," "Blue Skies," "How Deep is the Ocean," "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm," and "Change Partners."
