Exploit your limitations was the most profound advice ever given by the great jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery. TOTAL GILTRAP is a prime example of this. Indeed, Giltrap himself is a living example of an artist who has exploited his limited, right hand pick and little finger technique to its nth degree. In this volume, we explore open tunings, legato technique, two-handed tapping and the harp-like technique of open strings and harmonics. This is all wrapped up in a very English approach to melody and invention. All the techniques and pieces in the book are featured on an accompanying audio. All the examples are recorded at half tempo and full tempo, making it a very easy to follow guide. TOTAL GILTRAP is a snapshot of ideas ready to be exploited and developed by the willing and imaginative student of the modern day acoustic guitar. Includes access to online audio.
