There's a fretboard and open bass strings... but it's not a harp guitar....

 

 

Now that would be harder than hell to play!!!

 

Gregg, did you ever reach this level of virtuosity?

It's Andy McKee playing Gates to Numeria! This was a pretty popular request at the last couple harp guitar gatherings. He's posted quite a few new videos as well, some with harp guitar. Hopefully we'll see these videos added the HG video section soon..!

I'm sure this Michael Hedges video will be added shortly to the Video Page soon! It's a  rare live performance of the Cello Suite #1 in G Major by Bach!

 

Happy New Year!

I'm actually almost finished transcribing the cello suite as Hedges played it.  It's note for note finger for finger. I just need to add string stopping. I was going to talk to Stropes about publishing it, which would mean even longer till it's release because he wouldn't even think about having his name on it unless it was 100% accurate.  If that doesn't work out, perhaps it could go up on the members only section of the site or something for you guys to toy around with.  It's a lot of fun to play

Cool that you're transcribing the Bach piece, Drew... I did that a couple of years ago from the recording, taking the tuning off Stropes.com My version was in Sibelius, but it didn't include every nuance as I was just doing it for my own mapping of the piece.

The video really helps with fingering. I have an alternate way of playing a few of the passages which seemed to fall under my fingers a bit easier than others at the time. Now that I've tried the way MH does it in this video I don't know which fingering I like better. (of course, I defer to the master)

How about if you submit your transcription to Rootwitch.com. I'm sure Jim Roosa would post it and it would be a really sweet thing to do for the community. Sort of like recycling.

I don't mind posting mine if anyone's interested. The Sibelius version will play back in midi, making it even more fun.

Hey gang - Deirdra Doan had a great idea and started a YouTube Harp Guitar group, which she transferred to me.  I realize this will make it easier on me, rather than maintaining an entire video page on the site.  It will remain, but mainly to link to the new group.  Please sign up everybody.  When you come across new videos in the future, just add them yourself.  I will be auditing regularly for content and removing any inappropriate material.  Unfortunately, I won't be able to properly organize it...

I ran across something new on the video front the other day.  Surfed by Bennett's website and he had a link to Guitar Player TV, which has a Stephen Bennett channel.  Quite a few video clips.  Most seem to be in the 2-4 minute range, some a little longer.  There are clips from performances and workshops in the UK, as well as others.  Some six string, but quite a few with the harp guitar.  Lots of good information in the workshop clips.  I've been in quite a few workshops with SB and found some info here I'd not heard before.  I give it two snaps up.  Check it out here:

Thanks Joe. The workshops are priceless. I would buy a set of Harp Guitar tutorial/technique DVD's by Stephen Bennett (If they were around $150 instead of priceless). I have the Mel Bay Stephen Bennett DVD but that is just a little taste of what he could share.             Michael

Folks:  this series is called "Fingerstyle Finesse" and is available
at: http://truefire.com/list.html

I already bought them and am really grateful he has made them available.

Thanks so much Stephen !

Although it is primarily 6-string (Not really a bad thing !)

His "Stephen Bennett Live" DVD has amazing playing and also features his National  Resonator Slide work - and some HG tunes as well.

You can sign up for Stephen's mailing list at his website - That's the only reason I knew about this CD series that just recently came out.



Best,

     -Eric H.

Eric, You're right about those first clips being from the Truefire series.  Good stuff.  But, if you scroll down past the UK performance clips you'll find 21 clips from a group workshop SB did in the UK and maybe 40-50% of these feature the harp guitar.  Lots of good info.  They may be available elsewhere, but this is the only place I've seen them.

Hi Joe,

I still owe you a big THANK YOU for the ride (with you ,Stephen & the Lindas) to Wahlberg's HHGIV send-off party. I really appreciated it, otherwise I wouldn't have been able to attend ...)

I haven't had a chance to see all of the clips yet, but am grateful you shared that with us. Just thought Michael & others might want to know that commercial CD set was available as well. (Relatively inexpensive too).

Best,

     -Eric H.

Hey Eric,
Glad things worked out so you could ride to the post-HGGIV party with us.  Stephen and I are pretty tame, but you've got to watch out for the Lindas   What a hoot, as evidenced the photos in the Member's only section.

Also glad you pointed out some of the clips are from the Truefire material, since I failed to do so.  It's seriously good stuff.

Thanks Nate - I added it to the YouTube HG Group.  You can do the same as you find them.

Forgot to mention the video Jim Kline pointed me to, which I added to the Group...then saw 2 more of him someone added.  They aren't great by any stretch, but they do show him in his true element!

I put the longer one in.
I also added a few others.  Can we get him to come one of these years to the gathering?

Thanks Nate.  He would love to, but scheduling and logistics seem to prevent it.

The guy and the left bows, then plucks this lyre like guitar/violin. In the middle of the clip, you can notice open bass strings! Does this belong in the harp guitar video section? What is it?
 
Weird...
