Classic Ragtime Guitar by David Laibman. For Guitar (Finger). Boxed, Solos. Grossman Guitar Workshop. Ragtime. Intermediate. DVD. Duration 100 minutes. Published by Grossman's Guitar Workshop (MB.GW974DVD).
In this unique lesson David Laibman teaches two classic ragtime compositions: Red Carpet Rag and Scott Joplin's 1899 famous Maple Leaf Rag. These are difficult arrangements but they are taught section by section, including split-screen segments, where you can see exactly what the left and right hands are doing. David explains fingerings, slides, hammer-ons and pull-offs, harmonics, and any other technical points. Also, complete music and tablature are included.
As David says often in the lesson, "Fingerstyle guitar is a creative process, and there is no single right way to do things. I am always discovering new ways to play certain bits, and then wondering why it took me so long to find them. If the fingering of a passage seems difficult and you want to change it, go right ahead! Fingerings should work for the music, and for you. Above all, ragtime should be fun. Enjoy!"
A detailed printed ab/music instructional booklet is included as well as a PDF file of the booklet on the DVD.
