Martin Carthy - British Fingerstyle Guitar - DVD
Martin Carthy has forged his own personal and unusual approach to fingerstyle guitar. He has developed his own tunings and right hand techniques to enable him to play British traditional folk music. This body of music is rooted in a vocal tradition of hundreds of years as well as a strong dance culture. It is not bound by any time or bar structure. The guitarist must find ways to explore, accent and embellish these melodies. Martin has successfully done this with the CGCDGA tuning. He plays with a heavy percussive attack reminiscent of a country bluesman and the gritty rhythm of a diatonic accordion player. He has a unique sense of phrasing and a strong emotional and atmospheric feel for his music. In this video lesson, Martin explains in detail his playing techniques and style for seven of his most popular arrangements. Titles include: "Old Tom of Oxford, The Heroes of St. Valery, The Siege Of Delhi, La Cardeuse, McVeagh, The Harry Lime Theme, Seven Yellow Gypsies".

Bert Jansch - The Guitar Of Bert Jansch - DVD
Bert Jansch was one of the most influential and unique guitarists to emerge from the British folk music scene of the '60s. His influence can be traced in the playing of Neil Young, Johnny Marr and countless others! Over the course of nearly 50 years, he produced a prodigious body of work as a solo guitarist, singer and songwriter, as a member of the seminal "folk baroque" band Pentangle, as a duo with his equally revered friend John Renbourn and in a variety of other ensemble situations. In this DVD, Rolly Brown explores and teaches a representative selection from the folk, traditional, and blues segment of his guitar arrangements ranging from simple early folk guitar settings like "Running From Home" to his most iconic, sophisticated and original pieces like "Reynardine" and "Black Waterside" which was recorded by Jimmy Page as well as "Angie" which was recorded by Paul Simon. These are carefully arranged little gems and his virtuosity as a guitarist allowed him to have a very specific and beautifully wrought arrangement while still showing an ability to create a number of subtle variations which occurred in his recordings over the years. Along with teaching the arrangements, Rolly also teaches many of the variations, introductions, and endings that Bert used! Songs include: "Running From Home, Blues Run The Game, Strollin' Down The Highway, In The Bleak Midwinter, Angie, One For Jo, Black Waterside, The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face, Reynardine".

Adrian Legg - How To Become A More Creative Guitarist - DVD
This terrific DVD will give you all kinds of musical ideas and new ways to approach your guitar playing. Adrian Legg explores nine of his most popular instrumentals, teaching some of the devices that he has pioneered to achieve his thrilling sound. His easy but inventive arrangement of "Silent Night" in open D tuning gets you off to an enjoyable start. Moving to open G, he introduces you to one of his trademark devices, his use of banjo tuners on the guitar (his preferred brand is the one designed and manufactured by Bill Keith). Teaching his composition "Born Again Idle", he shows how he uses the tuners to generate key changes and startling melodic effects. You'll learn how to imitate the sound of the pedal steel guitar with string bends and moving chord blocks, using these sounds on an arrangement of "Auld Lang Syne". The intro to Adrian's "Hymn For Jaco" uses similar bends in a different tuning (CGDGBD). Double-string bends give us yet another powerful sound on the lovely Celtic-sounding "Norah Handley's Waltz". Another of Adrian Legg's tricks is the use of partial capos, which are cut down so that they only cover three or four strings, leaving the rest open. "After the Gig" (EGDGAD) and "Pieta" (EGDGBE) both use this device. Adrian then shows you his spectacular show stopper "Brooklyn Blossom", played in banjo frailing style with multiple pull-offs. Finally, you'll learn "Pace Doc" in standard tuning, a traditional-sounding fingerpicking tune full of tricky hammers, bends and chord shapes.

Doug Young - Understanding DADGAD For Fingerstyle Guitar - Book and Online Audio
Understanding DADGAD is a complete introduction to using the DADGAD tuning for fingerstyle acoustic guitar. The book systematically explores the tuning, starting with simple chords and scale patterns, ultimately showing how DADGAD can be used to play in nearly any key and in many different musical styles. Topics include moveable and open-string chords and scales, intervals, the harp effect, common chord progressions in DADGAD and more - all in the context of either short musical examples or complete songs. Rather than just providing scales, chords, or tunes, this book guides the reader through the process of understanding the guitar from the perspective of DADGAD tuning. Topics are organized as a series of small self-contained sections ideal for a single study session or lesson. After exploring easy ways to get started with DADGAD, involving as little as a single finger on the fretting hand, the book progresses to examples that will interest even more advanced players! Over 200 musical examples, including several full performance quality pieces, demonstrate each concept.
