We also offer "Masters of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar," "Hymns and Spirituals," slide guitar, blues fingerpicking, a variety of Christmas titles and much more. 

Fingerstyle guitarist Mark Hanson has authored over 30 titles on acoustic guitar. He regularly presents concerts and master classes, including the annual Accent On Music Guitar Seminar in Portland, Oregon. Mark has shared the stage with such luminaries as John Renbourn, Tommy Emmanuel, Laurence Juber, Alex deGrassi, and the late Jerry Garcia.
