Adrian Ingram's detailed examination of Wes Montgomery's unique style is a tour-de-force in the art of jazz guitar. Besides covering the more overt aspects of Montgomery's style, such as thumb and octave techniques, important yet seldom discussed substitutional devices and soloing conceptions are also examined in detail. Rare film footage of Wes, together with Adrian's performances of classic Montgomery tunes, like 4 on 6 and West Coast Blues, further illustrate the ideas covered in this important DVD lesson. Everyone with an interest in jazz guitar will find something of value here. A working knowledge of Wes Montgomery's characteristic techniques provides new horizons which will ultimately allow you to take your playing onto a higher level. A detailed tab/music instructional booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD.
