Default Toby Walker lesson thread...

Anyone working on one of Toby's lessons? I started working on Cincinnatti Flow Rag (just starting page 2, page 1 in slow motion). I'm still working on a few other things but I have a lot of Toby's lessons (and a couple DVDs) and they are just begging to be worked on.

I do a version of Cincinnati Flow Rag which borrows liberally from his version that he did on Mississippi John Hurt's guitar, which I stumbled across on youtube a while back. So not exactly his lesson, but definitely "inspired by".

I've played a little bit lately with his "Licks-ercises" DVD. I've enjoyed it. I've always enjoyed noodling and doing exercises, so it seems natural to me. His DVDs are good, thorough and fun.

I have that and his two DVD set of Fingerpicking Freedom. This stuff is great, the only problem I have is that I start going off on tangents experimenting with the stuff on on DVD that I forget about the DVD! So, obviously I have to sit myself down and force myself to go through them all to the end!

There is so much you can do with different inversions and finger picking patterns that its incredible.

Ain't that the truth?! And Toby is very good at encouraging variety... different fingerings, different voicings.
