Now with video!

How would you like to learn a new fingerstyle lick every week? With Lick of the Week, you'll get a great new fingerstyle lick every week for a whole year! You'll learn licks, runs, and patterns from the playing of fingerstyle legends like Chet Atkins, Merle Travis, Jerry Reed, Paul Yandell, and more, plus original licks from Craig Dobbins.

The Lick of the Week will be emailed to subscribers each Monday, in notation and tab (pdf format), with performance tips and background notes, plus mp3 and video clips of Craig playing the lick!

In your first email, you'll get all the previous licks from the year; then you'll receive a new Lick of the Week every week, 52 licks in all!
