In Total Giltrap, the innovative guitarist and composer Gordon Giltrap encourages players to exploit their limitations - the profound advice once given by the great jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery.
Giltrap himself is a living example of an artist who has exploited his limited, right-hand pick and little finger technique. In this volume, he explores subjects such as open tunings, legato technique, two-handed tapping and the harp-like technique of open strings and harmonics. This is all wrapped up in a very English approach to melody and invention.
All the techniques and pieces in Total Giltrap are featured on the accompanying audio. All the examples are recorded at half-tempo and full tempo, making it a very easy to follow guide. This book provides a snapshot of ideas ready to be 'exploited' and developed by the willing and imaginative student of the modern day acoustic Guitar.
