Editorial Reviews


Review: A former student of blues/gospel singer/guitarist Reverend Gary Davis, David Bromberg has continued to explore the possibilities of the guitar for more than four decades, mixing folk, country, bluegrass, blues, and rock n roll as leader of his own bands and as a sideman for Bob Dylan, Ringo Starr, George Harrison, Jerry Garcia, Jorma Kaukonen, Jerry Jeff Walker, Chubby Checker, and his wife s trio, the Angel Band. With his first instructional DVD, the Philadelphia born guitarist reveals the secrets to the many styles and techniques that he s mastered. Sharing his instrumental approach in softspoken, easily understood explanations, he reinforces the lesson with split-screen footage of his playing of traditional folk, blues, gospel, and old-time country songs, as well as his unique arrangements of Dylan s It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry and Jerry Jeff Walker s Mr. Bojangles. A 56-page booklet of transcriptions, also on the DVD as a PDF file, adds to this longoverdue instructional session. --Dirty Linen/ Craig

Product Description

David Bromberg has toured around the world. He has performed and recorded with some of the biggest stars of the last decades. His guitar playing started with folk music and then migrated to the country blues. From here his musical interests traveled to city blues, old-time music, country music and bluegrass. He is a master of many styles and techniques. In this intimate DVD lesson, David presents some of his most popular arrangements. They vary from the folk blues Delia to the popular gospel song Just A Closer Walk With Thee to Bob Dylan's It Takes A Lot To Laugh It Takes a Train To Cry to Jerry Jeff Walker's Mr. Bojangles (featuring David's famous guitar solo). Nine great arrangements that will expand your repertoire as well as guitar playing skills. David teaches fingerpicking and flatpicking techniques. Vibrato, single string runs, cross-picking, the alternating bass, counterpoint lines and finding the groove are all discussed. Each phrase is taught note by note and clearly illustrated on a split screen. A printed tab/music booklet is included as well as being on the DVD as a PDF file. An important lesson from a truly legendary guitarist. Titles include: Delia, Just A Closer Walk With Thee, Cocaine Blues, Sleep Late In The Morning, Buck Dancer's Choice, It Takes A Lot To Laugh It Takes a Train To Cry, Shebeg An Shemore, Mr. Bojangles and St. Anne's Reel.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Guitar Lesson/w Dave Bromberg December 29, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Something for everyone here A goal for the beginner, lessons and aspiration for the intermediate and a master class for the advanced fingerstyle singer guitar player. The DVD also viewable as an "In house" concert with commentary. I just wish he would publish Demon in Disguise. As always his choice of material and delivery with vocals and instrumentation are impeccable. Included tab adequate,I recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything I would expect from Bromberg - outstanding August 14, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Dave Bromberg has been an inspiration to me for the last 30+ years, both for his outrageous musical talent and his personal integrity, and this instructional DVD and its companion performance DVD are together a great showcase for David's amazing guitar playing. It is also a great advertisement for the Bromberg signature Martin guitar; I had an opportunity to play one recently and it was one of the finest guitars I have ever played. Please tour more David, come to the midwest occasionally...

5.0 out of 5 stars fun to watch September 12, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Everyone will enjoy this DVD. Lots of good advice and teaching for those who can want a lesson. Fun to watch the amazing guitar artistry. No rock star attitude in David, he seems like a down to earth fellow.

He loves it. Wants all of the lessons this man has available. I hope that friend learns to play better guitar, as it was painful to listen to before.
