Band Name: Andrew Winton
DVD Title: Advanced Lap Slide Guitar
Year Released: 2008
Award winning musician Andrew Winton is an independent solo artist based
in Perth, Western Australia. He plays original music with blues, roots,
folk, gospel and jazz influences. He combines acoustic guitar, lap slide,
dobro and seven-string lap guitar/bass (the Wintonbeast), with hollers
and stomps to provide an engaging and authentic performance.
On this second of two DVD's, Andrew introduces us to some of his more
advanced techniques for playing and performing lap slide guitar, as well
as over 50-minutes of bonus live performance videos. In addition to a
brief review of the introduction to bass techniques as demonstrated in
DVD 1, this second DVD introduces more complex rhythms, runs and speed
development. Andrew demonstrates harmonics, percussion and chord
hammering, and looks cloase at both the picking and sliding hands to make
playing cleaner, stronger and faster. The bonus performances on this DVD
feature 15 tracks, including some from Andrew's latest album Surface Tension.
