At Stefan Grossman's Guitar Workshop and Vestapol Videos, we offer the best in instructional guitar DVDs, Audio CDs and Books, and the Vestapol series of historic and concert DVDs. We also have a wide variety of DVD and CD audio lessons focusing on various aspects of fingerstyle and flatpicking guitar styles and techniques.
Our roster of teachers reads like a "Who's Who" of the guitar world. Our DVD lessons present the finest in clear and incisive visual education. Each tune is performed in full and then explained.
You'll find Nashville fingerstyle, Country and Delta Blues, Ragtime, Celtic, Swing Jazz, Rockabilly, Classic Ragtime, and straight Jazz lessons in our catalog. Our DVD lessons present the finest in clear and incisive visual education.
Each tune is performed in full and then explained. This is followed by the piece being played slowly on a split screen, allowing the student to see both the right and left hand movements. Everything played during the split screen segments is transcribed and presented in a PDF tab/music booklet that is on the DVD lesson. Bonus audio tracks are included on our Country Blues lessons.
In this collection we'll use the well-known DADGAD tuning, hopefully showing why it's so popular in Celtic and traditional music. We will also use CGCGCD or C Sus2 tuning for some of the tunes. This tuning gives rise to some beautiful chord voicings that suit the essence of this music.
Titles include: The Sleeping Tune, Roslyn Castle, Kalyana, Le Tourment, Will You Come Home With Me, La Re`ve Du Que`teux and Sandizan
This lesson is for guitarists who want to get familiar with the world of Celtic music on fingerstyle guitar. Pat Kirtley presents challenging arrangements

Titles include: The Earle of Salisbury (standard tuning), Saltarello (DGDGCD tuning), Saltarello II (EAEF#AD tuning), Trotto (DGDGCD tuning), Robin
Is To The Greenwood Gone (standard tuning).
