New Sam Bush Lessons From Homespun

Homespun Tapes has announced the publication of two major online (and DVD) lessons from bluegrass and newgrass legend Sam Bush, available through their Instant Access software.

What is Homespun Instant Access?

In partnership with the Mandolin Cafe, it's a new and exciting way to deliver Homespun's library of music instruction DVDs to you quickly, safely and inexpensively, using an amazing new media system called the MOD Machine.

Homespun Instant Access allows you to get your lessons anytime you want them, delivering high-quality video directly to your computer. All you need is a high-speed connection and you'll be on your way.

The software you download for both PC and Macintosh is available from the Mandolin Cafe.

The two new Sam Bush tutorials include:

All About Rhythm Mandolin! Chops, Strums, Timing, Accents and Accompaniments
One hour, 40 minute DVD - Music and tab
Sam shows all aspects of his amazing rhythm style: Chopping, strumming, accenting, damping, subdividing beats, keeping good time and more.

All About Lead Mandolin! Fiddle Tunes, Rags, Waltzes, Solos and Variations
One hour, 40 minute DVD - Music and tab file
Sam shows you how to play melodies, improvise variations and step out and take a hot lead solo. He teaches a variety of tunes in different keys and styles, from straight bluegrass to contemporary originals.

I like this way of getting the teaching, instantly. Is it possible to get the tab that comes with the dvd courses?

I found them, in a file, marked Homespun... I had no idea they would be there waiting for me.
