Aaron Gilmartin - Easy Steps To Flamenco Guitar - DVD
Play along and learn! To get you going, Aaron has chosen "Tango Flamenco" - one of the great traditional Latin dance forms. The rhythm (compas), with its familiar percussive effect, is the key to this style. Aaron teaches you the basic right hand strums (rasgueados) and picking (picados) that conjure up the sounds of Spain. Aiming this DVD at true beginners, Aaron takes each step of his lesson at a very slow and deliberate pace. He builds your flamenco technique in a logical, step-by step method providing numerous exercises, play-alongs and great advice about everything from getting good tone to using fake nails. He helps you with each chord, gradually adding grace notes, bass and melody lines, arpeggios, and other techniques until you are playing a full-fledged flamenco solo!

Aaron Gilmartin - Learn To Play Flamenco Guitar - 2 DVD Set
The passion and power of flamenco, with its driving dance rhythms and fiery melodies, has inspired guitarists for generations. Aaron Gilmartin will get you started playing flamenco right away! Along with flamenco history, terminology and technique, Aaron teaches 4 of the most important flamenco forms, each with its own recognizable "feel" or "aire": Tangos - a dance rhythm similar to the sounds made popular by the Gypsy Kings, Alegrias - a lighter, more uplifting form, Bulerias - an exciting form elaborated in the 20th century by Sabicas, Paco de Lucia, Ottmar Liebert, Jesse Cook etc. and finally Soleares - the "mother of all flamenco forms". In each one you'll learn the basic compas (rhythmic feel), become familiar with strumming and picking techniques such as the rasgueado, abanico, tremolo, arpeggio and picado, develop your tone and rhythmic power and explore the improvisational melodies (falsetas) that make flamenco so exciting to play! Whether you currently play classical, folk, blues or contemporary fingerstyle guitar, these DVDs will open an incredible new world of guitar music for you!

Aaron Gilmartin - Easy Steps To Bossa Nova Guitar - DVD
Add Brazilian sounds to your repertoire! The distinctive sound of Brazilian bossa nova guitar has permeated the musical landscape for fifty years - influencing singers, instrumentalists and songwriters throughout the world. Based on a melding of jazz voicings and samba rhythms, this gently swinging fingerpicking based style will bring new colors and rhythms to all your guitar accompaniments and solos! Aaron Gilmartin builds your bossa nova guitar technique step-by-step, providing chordal exercises, melodic passages and syncopated picking along with invaluable guitar advice and musical knowledge. He opens the lesson with his original song "Hold the Place" which is based around a typical four-chord progression that will give your playing an instantly recognizable Brazilian sound, while putting it into a present day singer-songwriter context. Teaching in "little bites" so you can absorb each musical idea, Aaron carefully demonstrates the chord shapes, rhythms, turnarounds, and progressions that will allow you to work out arrangements for songs like The Girl From Ipanema, Black Orpheus, Desafinado and other international hits!
