Arrangements for Solo Acoustic Guitar - instrumentals from a national champion.
On this densely packed DVD lesson, Peter Huttlinger explores some of the pieces that are helping make him a major name in the world of acoustic guitar. Whether he’s teaching his arrangement of a classic pop tune or one of his own compositions, Pete’s style is clear, methodical and personable as he imparts invaluable musical knowledge and innumerable playing tips.
Pete starts out by teaching his richly textured arrangement of the beautiful Lennon/McCartney ballad And I Love Her. He then builds a powerful rendition of the Steely Dan hit Josie, complete with moving bass parts, jazz chord formations and a funky groove that doesn’t quit. Brown Bomber, an original fingerpicking tour de force, will give you an incredible workout while you learn cascading runs across the entire range of the fingerboard. Switching to a flatpick and DADGAD tuning, Pete teaches Catch and Release, the title tune to one of his popular CDs and one that is rich in a variety of ear-catching guitar sounds.
These show-stopping instrumentals will provide months of intense study and, once mastered, will add dramatic performance pieces to your repertoire.
