Easy beginner guitar just got another level easier... “The Song Train” presented us with a wonderful group of easy but “real” songs that have just one or two chords. It offers beginners a repertoire of good songs, and the recordings of the 56 songs provide a model of how men or women could play them with just an acoustic guitar. Because of Harvey Reid’s recent discovery of the amazing Liberty Tuning, “campfire” style guitar just got a lot easier. Many people found that the standard beginning chords like E, A, C, D and G were still a little too hard to play. Now almost anyone can play great-sounding guitar chords with very easy fingerings. Reid takes us through each of the 56 songs, and carefully shows how to play them in the original keys, using only the 2-finger Liberty Tuning chords. Like the Song Train, this book is packed with ideas, tips, strategy and musical advice from one of America’s most respected troubadours. (You will need a full capo, and a partial capo that can clamp 3 and 4 inner strings. Many common capos can do at least 3 strings, and the new Liberty "Flip" capo does them both perfectly.) It only takes a few seconds to put any guitar into this ingenious tuning, and now a lot more people than ever can join the fun and start playing home-made music. Endorsed by leading music educators.

Songwriter, guitar educator & multi-instrumentalist Harvey Reid has been called a "giant of the steel strings" and "one of the true treasures of American acoustic music." He has absorbed a vast repertoire of American contemporary and roots music and woven it into his own colorful, personal and distinctive style. His 28 recordings on Woodpecker Records showcase his mastery of many instruments and styles of acoustic music, from hip folk to slashing slide guitar blues to bluegrass, old-time, Celtic, ragtime, and even classical. Reid's skills and versatility on the guitar alone mark him as an important new voice in acoustic music. He won the 1981 National Fingerpicking Guitar Competition and the 1982 International Autoharp competition. Yet he's also a veteran musician with a long list of studio and band credits, a strong flatpicker, a versatile and engaging singer, a powerful lyricist, prolific composer, arranger and songwriter, a solid mandolin and bouzouki player, and a seasoned performer and captivating entertainer. And he plays the 6-string banjo and the autoharp like you've never heard. His Steel Drivin' Man CD was voted in 1996 by Acoustic Guitar Magazine as one of the 10 Essential Folk CD's of all time, in company with Woody Guthrie, Joan Baez and other hallowed names. He has become a featured act at many of America's premier concert clubs and festivals, including Merlefest, the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and the Walnut Valley Festival. Reid has also made his mark on the acoustic music world in other ways. He is responsible for most of what is known about the partial capo, developed all of the popular partial-capo configurations in use today, (including the Esus) was the first to record and publish music for partial capo. In 1980 he wrote the first college textbook for folk guitar.
