Stephen Bennett - Harp Guitar Artistry composed by Stephen Bennett. For Harp Guitar. Boxed, Concert/Documentary. Acoustic Music. DVD. Duration 45 minutes. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.20179DVD).
In what is neither an instructional nor a concert-style format, acoustic guitar master and acknowledged harp guitar pioneer Stephen Bennett plays ten captivating harp guitar solos, demonstrating the capabilities of this rarely heard instrument in a relaxed recording studio setting. With one exception, the traditional fiddle tune Westphalia Waltz, Stephen composed all of the music heard here. Stephen introduces each tune with insightful remarks about harp guitar history, the tunings he developed for the additional six bass strings, and the events or circumstances that inspired his compositions.
One of the original advertising claims made for harp guitars was that they would do to the standard guitar what the piano did to the harpsichord; that is, make it obsolete. That may or may not occur, but in this video you will at least hear some of the inherent possibilities of the harp guitar. Ultimately, you may find yourself thinking that those early claims might not be so farfetched; indeed, magic happens when these instruments are in the right hands, and Stephen Bennett clearly has those hands.
Join Stephen for an intimate introduction to this largely forgotten instrument and allow yourself to fall under the spell of the harp guitar!
