Alberto Lombardi - Hot Licks For The Acoustic Guitarist - 2 DVD Set
Exercises And Creative Tips For The Acoustic Guitarist. In this double DVD lesson Alberto Lombardi explores his approach to lick techniques on the acoustic guitar. Alberto has been an electric guitarist for most of his life. He had to adapt the things he does on electric to the acoustic guitar. He had to learn how to incorporate these techniques to his fingerpicking arrangements. Obviously the biggest challenge was doing alternate picking with a thumbpick and not a flatpick. Alberto also found that hammer-ons and pull-offs needed a bit more strength, as the strings on his acoustic were heavier than his electric guitar. His approach and method has been almost exclusively the "rock approach" that uses repetitive patterns and then combines them - as opposed to the jazz way that studies entire phrases over changes. The purpose of this lesson is to help you build a collection of patterns and ideas that you can use to develop a basis for further expansion and personal adaptation. You will study: Legatos * Alternate picking with the thumbpick * Hybrid picking * Harmonics - natural and artificial * Finger strengthening exercises * Lots of incredible Hot Licks!

Steven Crowell - Mastering The Matrix - Book, CD & DVD
The Jazz Guitar Expressway Vol 3. This fascinating book - the 9th in "The Jazz Science Series" - opens a missing musical dimension showing the tightly woven array of sounds and fretboard shapes at the heart or "hub" of jazz guitar improvisation. The Matrix is a "standalone" book or it can also be used as part of "The Jazz Science Series". On the DVD, Steven Crowell takes you through the entire book playing each exercise and then explaining the theory behind it. The Matrix contains many new, challenging, and even magical ideas. At the same time, it brings the entire "Jazz Science  Series" into sharper-than-ever focus. Master The Matrix and you will discover a new sense of freedom that few guitarists ever experience. The "Solos" section brings everything to an exciting conclusion by applying Matrix concepts to popular jazz standards like: "Autumn Leaves, Satin Doll, and Melodic Blues In G". The CD contains all of the solos played as written and play-along rhythm practice tracks!

Merle Travis - The Folk Songs Of Merle Travis - DVD
In this lesson, taught by Jim Ohlschmidt, we will learn some of the folk songs Merle Travis wrote and performed, beginning with his seminal "Folk Songs Of The Hills" recordings from 1946. Unlike the rigors of learning Travis instrumentals such as "Cannonball Rag," the accompaniments Merle played on such gems as "Dark As A Dungeon" and "I Am A Pilgrim" are easier to grasp and are an excellent introduction to his famous technique. All the hallmarks of real Travis picking are covered, including using a thumbpick, the Travis bass rhythm, and the system of chord shapes he used to facilitate his incredible sound. A brief history of his folk recordings accompanies this lesson. Each tune is taught phrase by phrase and played slowly on a split-screen. A detailed tab/music booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD. As well, original footage of Merle Travis playing some of the tunes taught is included. Titles include: "Dark As A Dungeon, I Am A Pilgrim, Barbara Allen, Black Gold, Jordan Am A Hard Road To Travel, That's All, Midnight Special, and This World Is Not My Home."
