The obvious impetus for playing fingerstyle guitar is the ability to combine bass lines, chords and melody simultaneously, effectively creating the impression of several musicians playing together. But unless you've already heard Martin Taylor, you've never experienced it quite like this. In Martin's playing, the three elements are so well integrated that the music transcends the technique. But you won't miss the details of his touch. Tight left-hand positions move with the precision of a servomotor; each digit appearing to have a mind of its own, but playing in perfect harmony with the others. Arrangements fly off his fingers in such a seemingly effortless manner that they create the illusion of accessibility." Fingerstyle Guitar In this unique DVD lesson Martin Taylor discusses various aspects of his approach to ingerstyle jazz guitar. This is the perfect introduction to Martin s guitar style and techniques. Once you have mastered this material you will be ready to tackle Martin s other videos and DVDs.

Gypsy Jazz Duets came together under an unusual and somewhat improvised set of circumstances. Yet, in the true spirit of “gypsy jazz,” those improvisations gave birth to an extraordinary learning experience for any jazz guitarist, particularly for those with a passion for gypsy jazz guitar. TrueFire’s radar screen started beeping loudly when it picked up that two of our favorite jazz players, Andreas Oberg and Frank Vignola would be within a hundred miles of our studios within just a few weeks. Both also happen to be very accomplished students of gypsy jazz guitar, a subject we’ve long wanted to present. And while both artists had heard of each other, they had not met nor played together in the past. Over the course of the next few weeks, we worked out the logistics of the session while Frank and Andreas worked out the curriculum and outline for the course. Frank and Andreas met for the first time on the day of the session to review the material.

Learning, listening and playing jazz is a jouney that takes a lifetime to travel. While every traveller plots their own path, all travelers must pass through the same milestones along the way.

Mimi's four TrueFire courses: Jazz Anatomy, Graduated Solos, Flying Solo and now Jazz Performance guide the student through the requisite techniques, harmony, improvisational theory and creative skills they'll need for their journey.
