Mark Hanson's Body of Work
I began teaching guitar professionally at the age of 20, and began a performing/teaching career directly after finishing college. After many years of private teaching and teaching at the junior college level, my method teaching the alternating-bass "Travis Picking" fingerpicking style was clearly defined, and I undertook to write it down and publish it. Greta Pedersen and I formed Accent On Music LLC in 1985 for that expressed purpose.
Our first two publications - The Art of Contemporary Travis Picking and The Art of Solo Fingerpicking - thoroughly and clearly explained my method, and are best sellers to this day. I have authored and published many other guitar titles since those early days.To see a complete list of my oeuvre - including both instructional and entertainment titles - and the products by others that we include in our catalog, please visit our Catalog Page and CDs Page.
