David Laibman Playing The Classic Rags (2012)
English | Size: 3.62 GB
It is, simply - ragtime guitar. These lessons meet two goals. First, to create versions of some of the most beautiful classical rags that 'lay down' well on guitar, so when you play them you are working with the instrument, not fighting it.
Laibman tries to pitch and arrange the pieces so that a lot of the action is in first position rather than high up on the neck, and to keep left-hand gymnastics to a minimum. Second, he didn't want these arrangements to sound like 'student' arrangements, too elementary to be believable. While the focus of these lessons is on the 'greats' - Joplin, Lamb, and Scott - Laibman also includes one of my own recent compositions.
