Alex de Grassi pioneered the techniques that have become standard in the repertoire of many of today's acoustic fingerstylists. Here's a rare glimpse of a master guitarist's technique at work. Alex de Grassi has a lot to say about melodies and counter-melodies, two-hand tapping, percussive slapping, double hammer-ons, harmonics, and how to develop dynamic chord structures. He teaches his compositions in a clear way, discussing voicings, tunings, variations on melody and the technique you'll need to put it all together.

Alex takes you on an in-depth exploration of three of his most popular pieces: the haunting melodies of  Western and Lost In The Woods and his funky classic The Monkulator. Not only will Alex expand your fingerstyle technique, you'll have an ear-opening lesson in the power of chords and melodies from a master musician.


"Alex's teaching will inspire all guitarists, even the most advanced players, to explore new territory and expand their musical abilities. Split-screen cameras capture all the action as Alex details the touch, tone and timing that has made him "one of the greatest steel string guitar player/composers of the last decade." --Acoustic Guitar Magazine.
