Whether you only know a few chords or are already proficient, this easy-to-follow program will show you all of the main guitar styles - as performed on the acoustic guitar. Just as dynamic and arguably more versatile than its electric counterpart, the acoustic guitar has its own voice in rock, jazz, blues, classical, and country music - and now you can play them all! As well as learning tips and tricks of the trade, Mel Reeves will also show you - step-by-step- six great instrumentals and take your playing to new heights. Styles include: Mississippi Blues, Django -style Jazz, Classical, Carter Style, and Bottleneck/Slide Guitar. Plus learn about open tunings, the capo, high-strung guitar, reading rhythm, and more! Includes instruction booklet.
Mel Reeves was born in London, England into a non-musical family. When, at 16, he heard the guitar playing of Bert Jansch for the first time he knew immediately that he wanted to become a guitarist. Two years later he began a career as a guitar teacher and has been involved in guitar teaching ever since. He has played in rock bands, jazz bands, folk bands and, for many years, performed solo. In the 1980's Mel founded the famous Guitar Studio and, with Peter Lincoln, wrote more than a dozen book/cassette tuition packages. Video seemed the next logical step and after making the self-funded Play Guitar Now! Mel signed with Fifth Avenue Films and has since made a further 15 programmes. Mel's clear and friendly approach has helped thousands of guitarists, bassists and keyboard players and continues to win praise from the music press. He has been described as "the Mr. Nice of video tuition" (Total Guitar) - which he likes - and "layed back to the point of geography teacher" (The Little Picture Show) - which he isn't sure about. Mel lives in the country with his wife,Jill, and is currently working on more programmes for DVD release.
