Any Homespun recommendations
I recently purchased the 2 Chris Smither downloads and they are fantastic, he is a very engaging tutor , camera close ups are great ,all in all very instructive, do any of you have similar rave reviews for any Homespun downloads?

I like anything by Russ Barenberg.

(Here's a shoutout to Homespun. Many, many years ago I bought his collection of bluegrass flatpick tunes on something called cassettes. LOL. Anyway, I used them and learned and unlearned some of the songs but the cassettes, as many did, went bad. So I called Homespun to see if I could get a new set, which has been renamed but offer the same songs, in a CD or other format. I hoped to get a discount because my request was years later.

To my surprise and delight, the Homespun folks did something better ... they shipped me a new set of CD instructions for free! Free!)

There's also The Murphy Method. I recently considered getting some mandolin videos from them before deciding to focus on guitar full time.

All of Toby Walker’s Homespun lessons have really helped me. I particularly like ‘Bringing Out the Bounce’ and ‘Fingerpicking Hank Williams.’

If you have any interest in Travis style, Thom Bresh’s ‘Like Father Like Son’ is a must-have.

And of course, keep a close eye out for their sales.

Bryan Sutton did one, if I recall. It was great… pretty sure I stumbled across it on YouTube, actually

Thanks all for your recommendations appreciate it! As a bonus , I think, on the Chris Smither downloads is a lovely version he demonstrates in waltz time of Dylan’s “Visions of Johanna”

An afterthought lest you only purchase one of his downloads , the “Visions of Johanna” is on the “ 6 outstanding fingerpicking arrangement’s “
