LAURENCE JUBER DVD The Guitarist
"I find the multiple angle views of the lessons very helpful. It's nice to
have a couple of looks at the guitar when the view becomes obscured by the
left hand. "
"What I really appreciate is the quality of the video on the DVD. Watching
something as intricate as the fingers on a guitarist like LJ is really hard
to do with poor resolution and (this is) quality video."
Mark Hawks, VP Michigan Fingerstyle Guitar Society
The Guitarist DVD Solid Air Records
"This fine DVD features Laurence teaching and performing six of his
original compositions. Multi-Camera angles can be selected to
give close ups of both left and right hands and the DVD features three
hours of footage with audiophile quality recording. Though his
first recognition was as a member of Paul McCartney's Wings, today
Laurence has established himself as one of the most talented and
respected solo guitarists in the world. In time, his original
compositions may be his greatest contribution. Both Laurence and
Solid Air are doing some of the finest work on the scene today."

MIKE DOWLING , UPTOWN BLUES:AMERICAN ROOTS GUITAR; LAURENCE JUBER , THE GUITARIST.
The Vast Majority of guitar-instruction DVDs on the market are old
video transferred to the new format. That's fine, but it hardly
takes advantage of digital technology. Two new lessons by virtuoso
guitarists Mike Dowling and Laurence Juber bring on-screen teaching
solidly into the DVD generation. Part of a series that also
includes lessons from Kenny Sultan , David Cullen, Doug Smith and AL
Petteway, these titles allow users to switch at will between three
different camera angels to get the best view of the material as its
being taught. The lessons also can be viewed in a
performance-only mode (with audiophile sound) as miniconcerts. On
"Uptown Blues" , Dowling, a renowned blues/jazz fingerstyle guitarist,
teaches six original compositions that span
bottleneck bues, jazzy ragtime, and open tuned fingerpicking. A
patient and careful teacher, Dowling explains the tunes in detail,
focusing on such techniques as palm damping, picking patterns, and
playing fast single-string runs. On "GUITARIST", Juber, the
former Paul McCartney and Wings guitarist known for his flashy solo
fingerstyle playing, teaches six originals, five of them in DADGAD
tuning and one in standard. His breezy but thorough
demonstrations take the mystery out of his brilliantly propulsive
pieces, which are full of multiple-string hammer-ons, fast walking
-bass lines, and percussive slaps. The DVDs do not include
tablature, but companion lesson-book/CD combos that include additional
instruction and complete tablature for the songs are available
separatelyfrom Warner Bros. Publications
