Toby Walker - How To Build Awesome Fingerpicking Instrumentals - DVD
Create show-stopping country, boogie-woogie, and swing guitar solos! Guitarist Toby Walker understands what you need to bring your guitar technique to a higher level. This fantastic lesson, for intermediate and experienced fingerpickers alike, teaches three exciting, performance-worthy guitar solos. Toby starts with an easy version of each piece, then adds the “bells and whistles” that build a show-stopping solo from the ground up. The country classic "Cannonball Rag" helps you brush up on your Travis-style thumb bass, right hand muting and various chord forms. Then add walking lines, banjo rolls, picking patterns, jazzier chords, single string licks and other ear-catching embellishments for an arrangement that will keep even advanced players on your toes. "Toby’s Boogie-Woogie" is a rockin' blues. He starts it with the ubiquitous boogie bass line and basic chords, then adds more advanced shapes and lots of cool blues moves, taking it far up the neck and into virtuoso territory. "Swing Bean" is reminiscent of a big-band tune, with unique chord changes under a swinging bass line. The complete arrangement features a rhythm section, “horn” parts, drum beats and lead lines, all played on solo guitar. A real workout, but the results will be well worth the work you put into it!

Toby Walker - Take A Solo! - DVD
The secrets to blues and country guitar improvisation! A blues or country guitarist creates a great solo, spinning single-string notes seemingly out of nowhere, thrilling the audience and getting nods of approval from fellow musicians. How does this happen? How do you even start figuring out which notes to play in the midst of a song or jam session? Toby Walker has the perfect key to unlocking those mysteries. He shows you how to come up with powerful and compelling improvisations in any key and in any position on the fretboard, using a flat pick or fingers. Concentrating mainly on blues soloing, he eliminates robotic scales and patterns and shows you the “language” of a musical conversation. You’ll learn how to think in shapes, or “boxes,” finding the root note and then adding the right intervals to come up with licks and solos. Once you start moving from one shape to the next, your playing will flow up and down the fretboard with ease. Then add in the “wasabi” - vibrato, bends, B. B. King-style licks, Lightnin’ Hopkins shuffle beats, and other techniques - and you’ll add really hot spice to your playing. Once you’ve got the blues ideas under your fingertips, you’ll discover that you can move the same licks to country songs, like  "Goin’ Down the Road Feelin’ Bad". You’ll be stepping into the spotlight in no time!

Toby Walker - Bringin' Out The Bounce - DVD
The remarkable Toby Walker has made an outstanding lesson that is sure to appeal to all fingerpickers who love blues and traditional guitar playing. He helps bring your songs to life by adding the rhythmic bounce that will put "pop" into anything you want to play. Toby starts off with a basic version of "Roll In My Sweet Baby's Arms" developing it step-by-step with tried and true techniques - muted bass, accented beats, a syncopated "bounce" note, fills, licks and runs until it really swings. In Mance Lipscomb's "Sugar Babe" and Toby's original, "Traveling With Charlie", he builds his arrangements by adding a cool hammer-on sequence, a "reverse slide", "reverse pull-off," a neat ending and other techniques that will enhance your picking. Blind Blake's "That'll Never Happen No More" introduces the thumb technique Toby calls the "da-dump" rhythm, where your bass notes anticipate the beat in a 'double-thumbing" shuffle groove. Finally, Rev. Gary Davis' "Sally Where'd You Get Your Liquor From" introduces dazzling, dance-inspired licks and runs that will amaze you and your listeners. This lesson is a must-have for anyone who wants to pick with the best of them!
