Lasse Johansson – Early Jazz for Fingerstyle Guitar

Lasse Johansson Early Jazz for Fingerstyle Guitar. Swedish guitarist Lasse Johansson presents this detailed guide to fingerstyle arrangements of early jazz and classical ragtime tunes.
The ragtime and early jazz music pioneers during the first decades of the last century didn’t know that the sounds they created would echo in the music that people loved for years to come. They started an American music tradition that is alive to this day.
Many of the early jazz songs and of course classical ragtime often is played as piano music, with a steady left hand playing bass notes and chords together with the right hand playing a syncopated melody on top. This style of playing is very similar to the alternating bass style on the guitar. So these tunes easily lend themselves to a fingerstyle arrangement.
These transcriptions are creative, challenging, fun to play, and the songs sound great. Best of all, the songs are really composed pieces – they’re not just a verse/chorus with variations. The level of complexity is comparable to classical music, but with the soul, sound and feel of popular music in solo guitar arrangements. His demeanor and playing are rather expressionless, but that’s fine for teaching and gives you the opportunity to add in all the personality yourself. Highly recommended for the intermediate to advanced fingerstyle player.
