Adrian Legg – Fingerpicking and Open Tunings
Jun 06 2014
Adrian Legg takes an in-depth look at some of the more intriguing open tunings for acoustic guitar plus a variety of trailblazing effects. “Frailing” for guitar, Celtic-style playing, DADGAD tuning, open G tuning, dynamics, attack, advanced hammer and pull techniques and even Scottish bagpipe effects – all these and much more make this DVD an exceptionally rewarding lesson from a British guitar master.
“Fingerpicking And Open Tunings” also features a new introduction by Woody Mann.
Jazz and blues guitarist Woody Mann learned from legendary Rev. Gary Davis and then played and recorded with Son House, Bukka White and John Fahey. He has performed throughout the world, recorded over a dozen CDs, and is an internationally renowned guitar teacher.
For the first time the legendary Hot Licks classic video titles are available on DVD, making it even easier to learn with top players… right in your own home!
You’ll never miss a note! You see the music and the tablature on screen as it’s being played! All right and left hand techniques are shown in close up and with helpful split-screen effects to make learning easy. Also features slow motion segments with standard pitch sound.
He’s also shared the wealth of his talent and experience with three teaching videos (“Beyond Acoustic Guitar”, “Fingerpicking & Open Tunings”, “How To Cheat At Guitar”) and two books – the technical “Customizing Your Electric Guitar” and the musical “Pickin’ and Squintin'”, a collection of Legg’s guitar compositions in tablature and standard notation. In recent years, he has also been a commentator at large for National Public Radio’s All Things Considered, and more recently, regular listeners have heard his guitar versions of the show’s theme music.
