Guitar Techniques - - INTRO -

Award win­ning gui­tarist and long time Gui­tar Tech­niques’s acous­tic spe­cial­ist Stu­art Ryan re­leases his brand new book and CD of fin­ger­style ar­range­ments, The Her­itage, on March 7th.

The fol­low-up to his crit­i­cally­ac­claimed first book, The Tra­di­tion, this new col­lec­tion fea­tures 10 ar­range­ments tak­ing play­ers on a jour­ney from tra­di­tional Ir­ish airs and reels to New Or­leans fu­neral bal­lads via Gospel blues, Amer­i­can Spir­i­tu­als and more. Each ar­range­ment is pre­sented in tab­la­ture and no­ta­tion and in­cludes de­tailed per­for­mance notes, fin­ger­ing sug­ges­tions and an au­dio record­ing on the ac­com­pa­ny­ing CD. With pieces rang­ing from easy to chal­leng­ing The Her­itage is the ideal col­lec­tion for any fin­ger­stylist look­ing to in­crease their reper­toire while de­vel­op­ing the es­sen­tial tech­niques for solo play­ing and per­for­mance.

Like The Tra­di­tion, this new set of ar­range­ments is des­tined to in­spire fin­ger­stylists across the world. Ryan has a rep­u­ta­tion as one of the most po­tent acous­tic play­ers on the scene to­day with ac­co­lades from a host of world­class play­ers in­clud­ing Martin Tay­lor (“a world-class gui­tarist”).
