Fingerstyle Guitar of Jody Stecher
ody Stecher's guitar arrangements are blues tinged, banjo influenced and highly inventive. They are fluid, evolving and subject to flights of fancy and improvisation in actual performance. Yet, they contain a lot that is fixed or repeated from performance to performance. The seven arrangements presented in this lesson are crystallizations of the motifs and patterns typically used by Jody when playing these tunes. Five tunings and four styles of picking are presented. Jody's music has the flavor and atmosphere of traditional old time country music, country blues and mountain music, but the actual details of execution and arrangements are uniquely his. This practice of original expression is itself an important element of American traditional music which is fundamental to aspiring guitarists. DVD is region 0, playable worldwide.
Jody Stecher, who is basically a teacher to me, opened up my ears to more beautiful music than anyone else ever did...than I ever knew existed. He is also one of my favorite musicians on Earth to play with. I have never known anyone so intensely and completely enveloped in music. It's my suspicion that if you drained all the music out of Jody, you could carry what was left around in an eye dropper --David Bromberg
