Traditional hymns, with their resonant melodies, rich harmonic structures and deep messages of faith and inspiration, have been joyfully passed down through the ages. Guitar virtuoso and renowned teacher Pete Huttlinger has taken seven carefully chosen pieces and has arranged them for intermediate fingerstyle guitarists. These beautiful songs of faith can be played in family gatherings, worship services, solo performances or in any other setting.

Pete shows you how to find the melody notes, then works through the chord inversions, harmony lines, bass tones and other elements that fill out the instrumental arrangement. Many of these songs are set in dropped D tuning to bring out the sonority of the guitar's bass strings. Each one explores a different "feel," from a Travis steady-thumb style tune with jazz-like chords to a gorgeous Celtic melody played in both fingerstyle and flatpick versions.

You'll soon be playing stunning arrangements of: I've Got Peace Like a River; Blessed Assurance; Holy, Holy, Holy; Redeemed; Be Thou My Vision; From Every Stormy Wind That Blows and Abide with Me.

The late Pete Huttlinger was clearly a brilliant musician, and along with the other Homespun instructors, a great teacher, however, I don’t agree that this is for Early Intermediate skill level, I think it is suitable for slightly more advanced players. I would say I’m at best Early Intermediate, and the other Homespun lessons that I’ve bought for that level are perfectly suitable to me, whereas this one will be, Lord-willing in the future after more practice and hard work! So, had I known this I would’ve waited and bought it later on.

Still, having said that, I’m looking forward to getting stuck in when I’m a bit more accomplished. Great work again Homespun, thank you so much for all of your great lessons, I’m learning so much.

Thanks for the feedback. We'll change the level to "4" in case others have similar feelings about this. In the meantime, with some work and time, I'm sure these lovely tunes will come together for you.

Thank you for replying Mr Traum, and for everything you said. I hope my comment didn't sound rude, I just wanted to let others at the same level as me know in case they found it a little too difficult for where they're at.

Thank you for your encouragement, I will keep working at it:) Thank you also for all you're doing here providing excellent instruction at affordable prices.
