Ben Woolman: Fingerstyle Guitar


DVD Shoot Complete for Hal Leonard

I just completed a successful DVD shoot for Hal Leonard Corporation, the world's largest  music print publisher. It is part of a DVD series they are releasing called, "The Guitar Licks Goldmine Series". I am one of the acoustic personalities per se and contributed 40 newly composed finger-style guitar licks. It is a pretty wide range of techniques, rhythms, textures, tunings, sonorities, etc. and basically just tried to represent my own personal gamut of finger-style guitar. The format was me playing each exercise at speed, then slowly, followed by a brief explanation. It looks and sounds amazing already (though a little disconcerting to see myself in hi-def)! The completed project is scheduled to be released at the Winter NAMM show in California, followed by online streaming content later next year. Of course, I will post again once everything is available for mass consumption.
