Juber aims this 2-DVD set of lessons at guitar players who would like to expand their options by learning the musicality behind the act of playing. As Juber describes it, he would like this DVD to be viewed as a "resource for guitarists" which describes advanced musical concepts that many musicians may be familiar with by ear, but not necessarily by name. By progressively explaining these concepts, Juber guides viewers through the sometimes intimidating study of music theory.
Laurence Juber, the former lead guitarist for Paul McCartney and Wings, is the premier solo acoustic guitarist of our generation. His arrangements are beautiful, fluid, and stunning, yet never does he sacrifice musicality for technical virtuosity. On this DVD, Laurence performs and explains six of his most popular solo guitar pieces in DADGAD and standart tuning. In the special lesson sections, Laurence walks you through the key aspects and techniques required for each arrangement, and you can select from multiple camera angles: watch the full performance or see a close-up right or left hand. In addition, several bonus song performances are included.
Best known as the keyboard wizard of the venerable Hungarian rock band Omega, the solo work of Laszlo Benko is by comparison virtually unknown beyond the confines of Eastern Europe. A curious offering of keyboard based electronic music, it can be likened at times to some of Tangerine Dream's mid-seventies material such as Rubycon or Ricochet albeit with a more light-hearted, zany touch much more along the lines of Kraftwerk minus the vocals or even some of Vangelis' seventies work. Prefering shorter formats rather than longer multi-dimensional compositions favoured by many progressive electronic artists, it is worth a brief glimpse into his musical contributions and developments within Omega in order to better introduce his solo work.
