The 101 Strings Orchestra offers this compilation album that brings ten musical themes that were hits during the 40s. At that time prevailed in North America gold big bands (Tommy Dorsey, Glenn Miller, etc..) and scenic subjects. The repertoire of this album features a chosen sample of issues that have kept the nostalgic version of the original hits, dressed with glitter and excitement that has always been able to provide this great orchestra.
John Denver is remembered as one of the most beloved figures in the history of American popular music. He was an accomplished singer, songwriter and guitar player as well as a committed social activist, humanitarian and environmentalist. The spare, deceptively simple accompaniments he devised for his many hit songs gave each one a memorable sound that continues to ring in our ears to this day. Although John Denver's voice was his primary instrument, he played such beautiful parts to accompany himself that he created a sound for an entire era.
This follow-up to one of Homespun's top-selling DVDs teaches you how to play seven more hit songs by the legendary singer-songwriter, Jim Croce. Guitarist Pete Huttlinger is faithful to the spirit of the original recordings as he breaks down the strums, picking patterns, chord progressions and other accompaniment techniques that Jim Croce devised to bring out each song's unique qualities. As an added bonus, you'll learn some of the lead intros and distinctive solos as arranged and played by Maury Muelheissen, Jim's long-time lead guitarist and extraordinary "one man band."
