Last weekend Robin Nolan and I held a Gypsy Jazz Guitar Retreat in London.

It was good to see a couple of my ArtistWorks students there and meet new students who said they'd like to join us here online at the ArtistWorks Fingerstyle Guitar School.

We had guitar players travel to London from all over Europe, Scandinavia, USA, and Australia.

The theme of the retreat was 'Bringing back the fun in Jazz' as this style of jazz is very happy and uplifting and also doesn't require a huge amount of music theory knowledege to get started. You can just jump in and start jamming straight away!

Many thanks to all the students who travelled long distances to share in this experience.

Fireball Mail - Basic Dobro

We've added new lessons for another great song to play on Dobro, "Fireball Mail". Andy recorded different versions at each level in the curriculum.

Find them in the Learn area along with their corresponding tabs and backing tracks or just click on the images to jump to each lesson page.

upload limitis increased

Is 500 MB big enough for you? Hopefully it should be plenty so you won’t have to worry about compressing videos before uploading. You know what that means? More time to play music! Speaking of which, shouldn't you be practicing?

artistworks tagging badge

Calling all members, calling all members! There's a new posse in town.

 

They call themselves the Tag Team... and they're back again to implement some indexing! Word on the street is they're looking for you to join their team. They need more tags on these videos! 

 

Did we mention you get a badge if you add 10 tags?

Whoomp! (There It Is)  ------->

After two very successful shows in Paris, Ulf Wakenius and I will continue touring later this year in Scandinavia, Europe, and Asia.

Arrangements for the shows are in the process of being finalized and will be announced as soon as they are confirmed.

Also in the pipeline is a UK tour in Spring of 2018 and a live duo album will be released on vinyl... remember LPs?!

It's always a joy to work with Ulf. He's one of the world's great jazz guitarists.

If we're playing somewhere near you, please come along and say hi. We'd love to see you.

Further tour details can be found at: www.martintaylor.com
