Product Description

From swing to jazz to bottleneck blues to folk, Grammy winning acoustic guitarist Pat Donohue plays it all with a flourish of artistry and melodic inspiration. Chet Atkins called Pat one of the greatest fingerpickers in the world today; Leo Kottke called his playing "haunting." Pat is certainly one of the most listened to fingerpickers in the world. As the guitarist for the Guys All-Star Shoe Band of Minnesota Public Radio's A Prairie Home Companion, Pat gets to show off his savvy licks and distinctive original songs to millions of listeners each week.

Pat's musical tastes are eclectic. Though he considers himself foremost a folk guitarist, Pat's influences are rooted in bluesmen Blind Blake, Robert Johnson, Charlie Parker, Duke Ellington, Muddy Waters and Miles Davis. He manages to blend jazz and blues with folk, and the mix is seamless. Over the years he has captivated audiences with his unique original compositions, dazzling instrumentals and humorous song parodies.

Titles include: Road To Kingdom Come, Novacaine, Spike Driver's Blues, Shuffle Rag. West Coast Blues, Kindhearted Woman, Cypress Grove, I Never Cried , Boogie Woogie Dance, Mudslide, Stompin' At The Savoy, The Mooche, The Hard Way, Stealing From Chet, The Other End Of The Mississippi, Buddy The Blues, Would You Like To Play The Guitar, My True Love and Louis Collins.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This DVD is a great example of a mixture of the history of fingerstyle (and a bit of slide) guitar in 20th Century USA and up till now.

And finally Pat did his version of ''Would You Like to Play the Guitar'' (set to the tune of Would you like to sing on a star)...

This is a mixture of advice, pointers, history of the players and great playing - amazing playing. If you've never Pat his playing is clean, clever, never boring, and always challenging should you decide to learn what he's doing. It's not a teaching DVD but it can serve as such for accomplished players.

Pat Donohue has been the guitarist for Prairie Home Companion for years- for good reason!

Read the "LJguitar" review above. He says it all.

1. Brief history of fingerstyle guitar in 20th Century USA.

2. Mixture of advice, pointers and amazing playing.

3. Clean, clever, never boring.

4. Not a teaching DVD. Every fingerstylist will pickup something, but this is advanced playing. NO BOOKLET, NO TAB.

5. Folk, jazz, blues, swing and a little slide guitar.

6. Nicely done.

Have enjoyed his music for MANY years and he just gets better and better. Have all his music - his own and collaborations. Enjoy seeing him in person from time to time and, of course, his major part in The Guys All Start Show (shoe, shew) Band on Prairie Home Companion. :-)
