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".

Tom Wolfe - 50 Hard Bop Blues Guitar Licks You Must Know! - DVD
Wes Montgomery is most widely known for the music he made during the 60's and for his signature approach for improvisations, which usually began with single note passages, then an octave solo section, finally culminating with a highly-charged chordal solo. His seminal approach changed the landscape for ALL guitarists for ALL time. In this collection, Tom Wolfe presents an extremely versatile vocabulary that not only celebrates Wes Montgomery's contributions but also captures the stylings of the blues and jazz guitarists that he influenced. Not only will Tom expand your vocabulary, he will also reveal all of the underlying harmonic approaches and techniques being applied: Major and minor blues scales, pentatonic applications, applications for both the flatted and major 3rd, triplet ornamentations, articulation, use of ghost notes, alternate fingerings, encapsulation, bending, chromatic passing tones, ii-V lines, 6th intervals, octaves (of course!), hemiola (the 3 against 4 feeling in a 4/4 time signature), tension and resolution, color tones, pedal points, side-stepping, diminished voicings, rhythmic intensity, syncopation, chordal soloing techniques and so much more! All of the licks are presented over a rhythm track so that you can hear and practice them in a musical context. Each performance is then followed by a detailed breakdown of the line along with the techniques and harmonic approach being employed to perform it. Everything is tabbed and notated, plus you get all of the rhythm tracks to practice the lines with by yourself. Grab your guitar and buckle up for this guided whirlwind tour back to the source of Hard Bop Blues! Guitar Lab's innovative learning systems employ a hands-on approach where students "play" their way through the curriculum using learning tools such as PIP video, practice rhythm tracks, and interactive tab and notation, which allows the student to play along with the tab and notation, at any tempo, without change in Pitch!

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!
