Duck Baker - The Music Of Turlough O'Carolan - DVD
The compositions of Turlough O'Carolan, born 1670, have a special place in the story of Irish music, as does the figure of Carolan himself, a blind itinerant harper living at a time of significant change in Irish history. Carolan seems to embody the image of the old bards in whom resided the last vestiges of the ancient music, and the lost art of extempore poetry. His music is often seen as a link between traditional Irish melodies and baroque music, but more importantly it includes some of the most striking melodies ever composed. Originally written for the harp, these compositions lend themselves perfectly to the fingerstyle guitarist. In this DVD lesson, Duck Baker teaches a wide variety of Carolan pieces, from the folk-like air Blind Mary to the stately Hewlett. The mysterious Planxty Kelly and the deeply melodic The Fairy Queen are presented, as well as Carolan's Concerto, a complex folk-baroque arrangement of the bard's most celebrated composition!

Also included are substantial biographies of both Bellinati and Jobim, plus a notation key illuminating the special guitar techniques needed to effectively perform each arrangement. Songs include: "A Felicidade, Amparo, Antigua, Bate-Boca, Chora Coracao, Estrada Branca, Gabriela, Garoto (Choro), Luiza, Por Toda a Minha Vida, Surfboard, Valsa do Porto das Caixas".

Robin Bullock - Acoustic Guitar Artistry - DVD
Celtic acoustic guitar and cittern wizard Robin Bullock takes the vibrating string to astonishing places with four of his own compositions, artful arrangements of another five traditional Celtic tunes, and tunes by Norman Blake and Dougie MacLean. From high-octane performances on Spider; Maho Snaps; Matelot Jig; and Old Brown Case to the extraordinarily moving and trancelike tune Between Earth & Sky(original title piece of his CD), the slow Irish air For Ireland I'd Not Tell Her Name; and Tiger Baby's Lullaby; Robin displays the fingerpicking and flatpicking styles that, combined with his composing and multi-instrumental skills, have earned his reputation with such renown Celtic and world-music groups as Helicon, Billboard's "world music" TOP 10 artist John Whelan's new Celtic band, and Riverdance guest artists Footworks Percussive Dance Ensemble. An extraordinary composer, Robin also varies tunings using standard tuning on only two pieces; he fingerpicks seven of the tunes, and uses flatpick technique on Old Brown Case and the three cittern (Irish bazouki) pieces: his original The Iraqi Road to Dublin and Irish traditional tunes Maho Snaps and The Dawn/Miss Monahan. Completing the 11 pieces on this video are: Dougie MacLean's Farewell to Craigie Duh, Turlough O'Carolan's Sir Charles Coote; Captain Higgins; and Rigler's March; Rex's Ramble; another one of his own. Find out why everyone who hears Robin Bullock is entranced by his masterful musical versatility, his humorous approach to life, and the music that runs through his head.

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".

Antonio Carlos Jobim: An All Star Tribute - DVD
Direct from Brazil comes this deeply appreciative musical tribute to Antonio Carlos Jobim (1927-1994), co-founder and leading composer of the Bossa Nova. With over four hundred songs to his credit, Jobim single handedly brought the Bossa Nova to the world, where it became a main ingredient in the jazz cookbook. Jobim's new sound adapted the rhythmic variety and percussive excitement of the Samba to the intimacy of syncopated guitar, while echoing the melodies and harmonies of cool jazz. This is an extraordinary gathering of jazz giants and together with Jobim himself (in his last recorded concert appearance), they recreate his classic melodies in a beautiful, concert-length (Thank You"). Songs include: "Once I Loved" - Shirley Horn: vocals, piano, "Aqua de Beber" -Gonzalo Rebulcaba: piano, "Olha Maria" -Gonzalo Rubalcaba: piano, Joe Henderson: tenor sax, "O Grande Amor"-Joe Henderson: tenor sax, "Chega de Saudad" -Jon Hendricks: vocal, Herbie Hancock: piano, "AFelicidade" -Gal Costa: vocals, Herbie Hancock: piano, "Se Todos Fossem" -Gal Costa: vocals, "Iguais a Voce - Luiza" -Antonio Carlos Jobim: piano, "Wave" - Antonio Carlos Jobim, "Girl From Ipenama" -Gal Costa, Jon Hendricks: vocals.

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.

After that, Django's syncopated rhythm shots are analyzed and presented by example from a simple back-beat to 2-bar-long syncopated strums.

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.
