Accompanying Irish Music on Guitar - Frank Kilkelly

Accompanying Irish Music on Guitar - Frank Kilkelly

This book offers an introduction to accompanying tunes in four different tunings, using several different right hand approaches. A repertoire of chords is included, along with suggestions about strumming/picking styles suitable for each tuning.
The idea is for you to learn the accompaniment as played on the CD. This will increase your chord vocabulary as well as your right hand techniques.
Frank is noted for recently accompanying singer Sean Keane and piano accordion player Alan Kelly.
A passion for swing jazz and Celtic music has led to an expressive style of playing.

Hot Guitar Techniques - Bob Brozman

Hot Guitar Techniques - from Folk to Jazz

As taught by Bob Brozman
Bob Brozman shares his vast knowledge of a half-century of American guitar music while teaching you how to move beyond basic folk style into the worlds of blues, jazz, ragtime and swing. With his dynamic finger picking and deep understanding of traditional styles, Bob gives you the tools to explore your guitar's rhythmic, harmonic and melodic possibilities.
The first 75 minute video will increase your understanding of chord voicings and inversions up and down the fingerboard. Clear split screen views of each hand enhance the instruction in: music theory, progressions, picking patterns, right and left hand exercises, chord melody, two-hand string damping, harmonics, diminished chords and double time rhythm while learning to play Salty Dog Blues, Jazz'm Blues and Sister Kate.
The second 65 minute video looks at jazz, swing, calypso and Gypsy guitar styles. This video explores: the 32 bar popular song form, chord-melody style, rhythmic exercises, minor key jazz-blues, calypso rhythms and progressions, Django-style chords, Palm harmonics, 'fat' swing chords and Gypsy jazz.
The tunes taught include Hot Moments With You, Dear, Blue Devil Blues and Dog and Cat.
