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".

John Jorgenson - Intro To Gypsy Jazz Guitar - Book, DVD & CD
In this 2-hour DVD lesson, Jorgenson provides the foundational information and practice material necessary for you to gain an understanding of the Gypsy jazz guitar style. The first half of this volume addresses the important element of Gypsy jazz rhythm. After discussing correct right hand rhythm technique, Jorgenson teaches the closed chord forms of a basic blues progression and then systematically introduces new chords into that progression to add "color" and "spice" while also introducing you to the characteristic "moving chord" style of Gypsy rhythm. After addressing the basic blues progression, Jorgenson then transitions into the more Gypsy sounding minor blues progression and introduces the "three-note" chords which are prominent in Gypsy style rhythm guitar. The second half of this first volume addresses soloing. Here Jorgenson not only lays the groundwork of Gypsy jazz soloing, but in the process also presents you with a method which serves to greatly enhance your understanding of the fingerboard and improvisational playing. Jorgenson teaches arpeggios, note maps, lead patterns and Gypsy techniques in every area of the fingerboard and in various keys. Additionally, he masterfully shows how the arpeggios and patterns relate to one another. An audio CD with play-along practice tracks is also included!

Ledward Kaapana - Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar - DVD
Playing in open-chord and other alternate tunings, Ledward's two-finger picking and alternating bass is reminiscent of the great blues and country guitarists, but with the licks and harmonies typical of Hawaiian traditional music. His playing is loose and improvisational, and his repertoire encompasses both quiet, beautiful melodies and rip-roaring show-stoppers with lightning-fast licks and fancy picking. The beauty of the slack key style is that it's made up of simple chords and melodies, but an accomplished player then builds up improvised variations using interchangable licks and turnarounds similar to those in blues guitar. Ledward provides all the elements for making arrangements in this style, showing how he acheives the special sounds (damping, bass runs, hammers, pull-offs, trills, and other ornaments) that make each tune come alive. Led's lesson starts in "taro patch" (open G) tuning with a lovely original piece that he calls "Slack Key Lullaby". As with each tune on this DVD, he breaks it down in detail, showing the basic melody, then adding harmony lines, bass rhythm and the embellishments that create the complete arrangement. He goes on to demonstrate numerous examples of Hawaiian-style turnarounds, as well as complete instrumentals such as "Kuu Ipo Onaona, E Lili'u E", and, switching to "wahine" tuning (DGDF#BD), the spectacular "Slack Key Medley."

Tony McManus - Celtic Fingerstyle Guitar: An Introduction - DVD
Much of the Celtic idiom is dance music and is defined by the contrasting rhythms of reels, jigs, slip jigs etc. "The Lark's March" is a great example of a simple yet attractive Irish jig. "Tullochgorum" is likewise a well known Scottish Strathspey (a dance unique to Scotland). Often overlooked is the Celtic music from outside of Ireland and Scotland and here Tony teaches us one of his favorite Breton tunes, a "Wedding Gavotte" - the structure of which is very common in the music of this region. Not to be overlooked, of course, are the slow airs and O'Carolan tunes! Turlough O'Carolan's (1670- 1738) music forms a unique facet of the Irish repertoire. All that survives of the harpists work are single line melodies so the harmonic accompaniment is a blank slate. Here we are shown a very accessible arrangement of what is thought to be his first composition - "Si Bheag Si Mhor". Also included is the enigmatic air "Paddy's Rambles Through The Park" - a tune from the Donegal fiddle tradition associated with Johnny Doherty, a key figure in that music. By working through this material the student will have a grasp of the variety and beauty of music that has been played in an unbroken chain for centuries. Songs include: "Paddy's Ramble Through The Park, I'm Asleep, Don't Awaken Me, Si Bheag Si Mhor, The Lark's March, Tullochgorum, Breton Wedding March, and The Butterfly".

Stephane Wrembel - Getting Into Gypsy Jazz Guitar - Book and Online Audio
This book focuses on the key elements of the Django Reinhardt Gypsy jazz or jazz Manouche guitar style. The information revealed here was gleaned from years of experience jamming with French Gypsies and studying with masters of the style. A native of France, Stephane Wrembel acquired his skills entirely by ear and has taught scores of musicians worldwide using the method that appears here in. Written in English, German and French, Wrembel conveys his knowledge in a logical step by step manner, exposing the reader to the authentic Manouche style as it continues to evolve in France and Holland. Medium to advanced in difficulty, this method is designed for the guitarist who is already familiar with jazz harmony and note locations on the fretboard.
