Fingerstyle Guitar: New Dimensions and Explorations Volume 2

This three DVD set features new and archival footage of performances by the preeminent names in steel-string fingerstyle guitar. Beginning with Peter Fingers breathtaking A Trip Through The Pyrenees, the collection boasts some real gems: a rare late 1960s clip of Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady - a.k.a. Hot Tuna doing Hesitation Blues, Bert Jansch delivering a soulful version of One For Jo, John Fahey crooning while plucking a Gibson L-00
on a plaintive Poor Boy and Adrian Legg at his peg-twisting best on Midwest Sunday... Its a wonder seeing these greats do what they do up close without those often-clumsy instructional asides, and without getting a lot of smoke in your face. A real treat. – Guitar Player

The "folk boom" which exploded in the wake of the Kingston Trios 1958 hit, Tom Dooley, produced some surprising fallout. Acoustic guitar sales suddenly skyrocketed, and a new generation of players quickly sized up the instruments potential. It proved to be astonishing once the secrets of fingerstyle guitar unfolded before the instruments future masters. The performances in this DVD series present two generations of artists who have advanced the acoustic guitars cause with formidable boldness. We clearly hear their folk, blues, and country roots even as they develop other distinctly personal harmonic and melodic pathways. Bonus material is included on each volume.

Running time 92 minutes. DVD is region 0, playable worldwide.
