David Laibman - Classic Ragtime Guitar - DVD
In this unique lesson, David teaches two classic ragtime compositions: "Red Carpet Rag" and Scott Joplin's 1899 famous "Maple Leaf Rag". These are difficult arrangements but they are taught section by section - with split-screen segments so you can see exactly what the left and right hands are doing. David explains all fingerings, slides, hammer-ons and pull-offs, harmonics and numerous other technical points! As David says often in the lessons: "Fingerstyle guitar is a creative process and there is no single right way to do things. I am always discovering new ways to play certain parts and then wondering why it took me so long to find them. If the fingering of a passage seems difficult and you want to change it, go right ahead! Fingerings should work for the music and for you. Above all, ragtime should be fun!"

David Laibman - Playing The Classic Rags - 2 DVD Set
“It is its' own story - not an imitation of a piano, or of a dixieland or jazz band. It is, simply - ragtime guitar. In these lessons I have tried  to meet two goals. First, to create versions of some of the most beautiful classical rags that ‘lay down’ well on guitar - so that when you play them you are working with the instrument, not fighting it. I have tried to arrange the pieces so that a lot of the action is in first position rather than high up on the neck and to keep left-hand gymnastics to a minimum. Second, I didn’t want these arrangements to sound like ‘student’ arrangements, too elementary to be believable. It is all about striking a balance. I am pleased with the results and I think you will be too! While the focus of these lessons is on the ‘greats’ including: Scott Joplin's "Original Rags" and "The Entertainer", Joseph Lamb's "Contentment Rag" and "Ragtime Nightingale", and James Scott's "Ragtime Oriole" - I have also included one of my own recent compositions: "Pandora’s Rag".

Paul Mehling - Gypsy Jazz Guitar: Django Style Rhythm - Vol I - DVD
They don't call it "hot guitar" for nothing! The driving style pioneered by Django Reinhardt and other Gypsy players became one of the dominant sounds in jazz during the thirties and forties, and its influence is still strongly felt today. Paul Mehling knows the style as well as anyone, and he takes it apart in detail for the learning player. A band won't swing without a strong rhythm section, and the powerful guitar accompaniment that typifies the Gypsy style is the foundation of this terrific lesson. Starting with basic four-to-the-bar comping and damping, Paul takes you through a variety of accompaniment ideas: arpeggios, "splayed" chords, "the gallop," chord tremolo, right hand speed and other advanced techniques. You'll gain an understanding of the particular harmonic structures of this music through chord voicings, progressions, and accompaniments to classics such as Minor Blues, Oriental Shuffle and I'll See You In My Dreams. Paul also provides invaluable advice on learning from recordings, use of the metronome, and a look at his rare Maurice DuPont guitars. Includes some hot jamming with Paul and Tony Mandraccia, rhythm guitar.

You'll learn the theory and playing techniques behind the music, including the exercises, scales, modes and arpeggiated picking ("the heart of the Reinhardt style") that will allow you to come up with your own improvisations. He includes advice on fingering, use of the metronome, singing your solos and how to "focus your attention so your hands can play what your ears hear." Paul teaches the special elements that give this music its distinctive ring: "sweep" picking, ornaments (glissandos, trills, bends, tremolo, vibrato, etc.), diminished and augmented runs, triplets and the other special sounds that "put the Gypsy in Gypsy swing."

Paul Mehling - Arpeggio Power! - DVD
Arpeggios (chords played as individual notes) are an indispensable component of music and can become an invaluable tool in your musical bag of tricks. Many melodies are built upon arpeggios, and their intervals and patterns are the key to understanding improvisation. In short, arpeggio knowledge can set you apart from other guitar players. Paul Mehling has methodically created a program of drills and exercises that “connect the dots,” offering a disciplined approach to practicing for guaranteed results. He starts you off with basic first-position chords, then works his way through increasingly more complex chord forms, from open position to closed shapes moving freely up the neck. He covers major and minor 6th, dominant 7th, diminished 7th and other arpeggiated chord forms. Throughout the lesson, Paul provides numerous tips and points of advice to help you build your playing chops and increase your familiarity with the guitar fretboard. You’ll learn to understand how each chord is built and how improvisation grows out of these exercises. Guitarists at all levels will gain knowledge of the fingerboard, improve improvisational skills and build left- and right-hand power and speed!

Django Reinhardt - Django's Rhythm - DVD
Taught by Michael Dunn with guitar solos by Don Ogilvie. In this DVD, the classic 4-to-the-bar rhythm is broken down into four separate usable styles. After that, all of Django's syncopated rhythm shots are analyzed and presented by example from a simple back-beat to 2-bar-long syncopated strums. My own philosophy is that the rhythm guitar section is the most important component of the Gypsy Jazz group. The rhythm guitar should be in a position to drive and not follow the group. The information contained in this DVD will give you the rhythmic tools to infuse the sound with the energy that this genre of music deserves. Lessons include: the pick & picking, basic rhythm & variations, ballads, concepts of rhythm guitar, advanced rhythm: hiccup, shuffle rhythm, double shuffle, tremolo, half whammy, short whammy, double whammy, triple whammy, tango rhythm.

James Blood Ulmer - Solos: The Jazz Sessions - DVD
The Jazz Sessions series spotlights unaccompanied performances by some of the legends and bright young stars of the jazz world. Designed and recorded specifically for television, this Solos DVD offers viewers front row seats for an intimate and unique jazz experience. Each program features complete musical pieces, insightful interviews, and behind-the-scenes footage. Shot in stunning HDTV with multiple moving cameras and a medley of elegant cinematic lighting, it showcases an exciting and dynamic variety of jazz styles – from the blues and boogie-woogie to bebop and the experimental. James “Blood” Ulmer is one of the few guitarists to have forged a style based largely on the traditions of African-American vernacular music. Ulmer is an adherent of saxophonist/composer Ornette Coleman's vaguely defined Harmelodic theory and plays with a stuttering, vocalic attack; his jagged lines speak with the authority of a free jazz improviser and the accent of a soul-jazz tenor saxophonist. His solo guitar work is an expressive, hard-edged, loudly amplified hybrid. But Ulmer isn't limited in his musical scope. In these sessions, he reveals himself to be an instant inventor of repute on the flute and a memorable songwriter and blues singer. Songs performed include: Are You Glad to Be in America? • Black Sheep • In the Name • Street Bride • Satisfy (Story of My Life) • Secret • Where Did All the Girls Come From?

Frank Vignola - Vamps, Jams & Improvisation - 2 DVD Set
Guitar players love to jam. Call out a key, lay down a one or two chord vamp, the rhythm section kicks in and everybody starts to get their groove on – simple enough for seasoned players with monster improvisation chops and big ears. Not so easy for most intermediate and early advanced players who tend to run out of ideas and struggle communicating musically with the other members of the band. This 2-DVD set illustrates dozens of approaches for developing solid melodic and rhythmic ideas for soloing or comping over one and two-chord vamps. You'll first learn how to think melodically and then how to best express those ideas, in a vamp or jam setting, with the other band members. The DVDs cover creative devices like melodic patterns, call and response, stutter picking, guide tones, horizontal lines, tone targeting, muffled arpeggios, chromatics, expressions, passing tones and other techniques for generating ideas on the fly. You'll also learn how to develop ideas around unusual scales like the Super Locrian, Bartok minor and harmonic minor scales. Rhythm and comping are also covered with equal emphasis; clave rhythms, inversions, rhythmic alteration, quartal harmony, bubble parts, chord punches and how to clearly communicate and then lock up with the band is demonstrated in detail.Hands-on learning tools included with "Vamps, Jams & Improvisation" are: text lesson guide, chord charts, practice rhythm tracks, as well as bonus material.

Jimmy Wyble - The Art Of Two Line Improvisation - Book and Online Audio
This collection of etudes, written during the 1970's, was composed as a result of Jimmy Wyble's explorations into the musical worlds of counterpoint, harmony and chord melody improvisation for the jazz guitar. The right and left hand fingerings presented in this book were also developed as techniques needed to improvise jazz in two lines. Jimmy uses very standard jazz guitar chord shapes in these etudes; however, these shapes move through the harmony in lines rather than block chord structures. This broken chord technique creates a unique contrapuntal sound that separates Jimmy from the rest of the fingerstyle jazz guitar world. It is hoped that jazz and classical guitarists playing and working through these etudes will see many familiar chord shapes moving in new ways and creating new sounds. These new harmonic sounds combined with beautiful melodies will inspire any guitarist to new levels of musical creativity!
