The Guitar of Preston Reed: Expanding The Realm of Acoustic Playing (DVD)
Preston Reed has reinvented how the acoustic guitar is played with his dynamic use of percussive devices and unusual playing ideas. Learn how a single guitar can create a multitude of sonic and rhythmic effects as he teaches the rim shots, bongo hits, slap harmonics, double hammer-ons, two hand tapping, right-hand fretting and other techniques that give his playing originality and excitement. Preston plays and analyses three of his show-stopping instrumental compositions - Slap Funk, Border Towns and Tribes - detailing the techniques and tunings he uses to get his unique sound. By learning these tunes you'll develop right - and left - hand coordination, new ways of generating sounds on your guitar, and a myriad of ideas that you can use in developing your own guitar style. The Guitar tab of the three songs taught on this DVD is also enclosed. DVD (Region 0) - Duration: 90 minutes.
