This whole series is incredible, and the tunes on Vol. 1 are my favorites (by a whisker).Seeger is clear, gives useful insights about each tune and about playing in general. His performances are spot on and he has an uncanny ability to play very slowly while still sounding musical. Each tune is taught clearly and the camera work is exceptional. I especially like the plain black background and the use of split screens so that both the right and left hand can be seen up close.Very professional production, very professional performance and teaching.
