Rock and Roll!

"It's amazing to be able to reach out to so many people around the globe." - Martin Taylor

Today marks the 6th anniversary that we first launched Online Fingerstyle Guitar with Martin Taylor. Since April 2010, he has recorded over 2600 Video Exchanges with students in over 50 countries - and he's having a blast. Watch this video where he talks about how it's been going, you'll also hear from some of his students about this unique online learning experience. 

To mark this milestone we have just released 13 new fingerstyle guitar lessons from Martin which were recorded recently in the ArtistWorks studio. Many of these came specially requested by his students so be sure to check them out in the Lessons area. Here is a list of what's new broken down by section:

Hello my reso friends. With this blog I’d like to talk about the topic of the number system. Some of you may have heard about this, and I’ve done some here and there to describe it. What I’ve noticed is that with music theory type stuff, it takes a lot of repetition over time and from different angles for things to sink in. So let’s use this as an opportunity to push the bar forward a little on our knowledge of theory, and more specifically, the number system. It’s a pretty useful and widely used way to refer to notes or chords, and help musicians communicate.

Hey guys!

I've been fortunate this week to have spent time with some of the brightest young musicians I've ever seen. Mike Marshall runs the Acoustic Music Seminar at the Savannah Music Fest in Savannah, Ga.  I was one of 4 "coaches" along with Mike, Darrell Scott, and Julian Lage.  Mike, Darrell, Julian, and I basically helped various groups of these kids create arrangements of tunes they submitted.  The focus of the week is engaging in pretty intense collaborations and performance challenges.  This group of young musicians was so strong.  My point is that I brought my traveling VE rig thinking I'd have time to keep up.  Alas, the days were long here and I havent had the chance to film anything.  I'll be home early next week and will dive in with the submissions.
