The JamPlay Artist Series features lessons taught by progressive guitarists from all styles of music. These lessons focus on each artist's particular style, and are taught by either the artist himself(found under "Artists"), or a qualified instructor familiar with that artist's playing style ("In The Style Of").
From the notes: If we wish to get an insight into what our music-loving grandparents regarded as "the Classical style", we need look no further than these discs, representing the work of the modern world's first great Franco-Belgian string quartet ensemble. Here is the epitome of the wristy bowing, springy rhythm and gutty but delicate sound, with its restrained vibrato, which flourished in Brussels, Liège and Paris until the Second World War, when it began to give ground to the advance of the Russian school. By the time these precious records were made, even the Flonzaley Quartet had taken a Russian violinist to its bosom - but the essential lightness and clarity of the Franco-Belgian method survived…. The Flonzaley Quartet was a full-time group composed of four absolutely equal partners and its performances were immaculately groomed. written by Tully Potter
The passion and fire of flamenco, with its driving dance rhythms and spectacular melodies, has inspired guitarists for generations. This Spanish Gypsy folk music has its roots in the Middle East, and you can hear strains of Arabic, Jewish, Eastern European, Indian and other ethnicities in its powerful rhythms and harmonies.
