DVD - A BEAUTIFUL WAY TO START PLAYING GUITAR: DADGAD FOR COMPLETE BEGINNERS taught by Al Dworsky Photo
Too many beginners get frustrated and quit the guitar. Why? Because the left hand - the hand that makes the chords - is too hard at first in standard tuning. DADGAD tuning solves that problem. You can make beautiful chords easily with just one or two fingers. This frees you up to focus on the right hand, the hand that generates the rhythm, making it possible to sound like a real guitar player right from the start. Dworsky gives you clear instruction in step by bite-sized step. Every chord, technique, and pattern is shown from a player's eye view and a side view. Beginners.

DVD - CELTIC FINGERSTYLE GUITAR, AN INTRODUCTION taught by Tony McManus Photo
Even at an introductory level, there's more to Celtic music than slow airs and O'Carolan harp tunes. Tony takes us on a gentle but detailed exploration of the ornamentation- rolls, grace notes, triplets, etc.- needed to really get inside this music. 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 Irish jig. "Tullochgorum" is likewise a well known Scottish Strathspey (a dance unique to Scotland). Tony teaches a favorite Breton tune; a "Wedding Gavotte." We are shown a very accessible arrangement of O'Carolan's "Si Bheag Si Mhor." Also the enigmatic air "Paddy's Rambles Through The Park" - a tune from the Donegal fiddle tradition. Connect with the variety and beauty of music that has been played for centuries. "I'm Asleep," "Don't Awaken Me," "The Butterfly," more.

DVD - MUSICWOOD Photo
For hundreds of years guitars have been made the same way, but this could all change. Musicwood is an adventure-filled journey, a political thriller with music at its heart. An unusual band of guitar-makers (Bob Taylor of Taylor guitars, Chris Martin of Martin Guitars and Dave Berryman of Gibson Guitars) travel together into one of the most primeval rainforests on the planet to negotiate with Native American loggers and change the way this forest is logged before it's too late for acoustic guitars. It's a culture clash between the makers, Native Americans who are distrustful of the white man, and Greenpeace all battling over a forest that is the last of its kind on the planet. As the tug-of-war unfolds, acoustic virtuosos Kaki King, Yo La Tengo, The Antlers, and Steve Earle play on the soundtrack, giving a heartbeat to this debate. "This is a moving and eye-opening film, and we can't recommend it enough." - Newport Folk Festival. 80 min.

DVD - THE GUITAR ARTISTRY OF BERT JANSCH: CONUNDRUM IN CONCERT 1980 featuring Bert Jansch Photo
After Pentangle split in 1973, Jansch returned to a solo career but missed playing in a group. The Bert Jansch Conundrum came into existence as the 1970s waned. Jansch recorded a solo album called A Rare Conundrum in 1977, with mandolinist Rod Clements and fiddler Mike Piggott as supporting players. When Piggott was unable to go out on a Scandinavian tour, Martin Jerkins hired on to play violin on the dates. They hit it off and Nigel Portman-Smith came aboard to play bass. They toured Europe and America. The first part of this collection presents Conundrum in concert, recorded in Ohio, followed by three tunes by Bert and Martin recorded in 1978. It concludes with a documentary that Bert recorded in 1985 that combines interviews, solo concert performances and rehearsals. 103 min.

DVD - VAMPING: BEGINNING BACKUP BANJO by Murphy Henry Photo
What is vamping? When you vamp on the banjo, you are playing just chords, no melody. Vamping is what you do when the other person is playing the melody or playing the "lead" or "taking a break." These chords are all 4-finger chords made up the neck (in the higher positions on the banjo). When you vamp, these chords are played on the off beat. Murphy shows you how to make these chords, and goes over the chord changes to each song, one beat at a time. A MUST for the beginning banjo player! Lots of slow playing so you can play along. Ending licks taught for each song. As always, she stresses learning to hear and play these chord changes BY EAR. Taught using the "Murphy Method:" no tab or other written material, taught entirely by ear! Beginners. 120 min.
