The Songs of James Taylor

Guitar Lessons - DVD Tutorials

I have been asked to compile an instructional DVD of many of James Taylors songs.The first one I have put together is for 'The Water Is Wide' . More recently I have completed 'You Can Close Your Eyes and a new commission 'Carolina In My Mind'. Some information on the DVDs is presented below. If you would prefer a hard copy please let me know, although I will need to charge postage as indicated. I will be doing more so please let me have your requests if there is anything in particular you would like  a tutorial on.

Feedback from Students:

'Just watched all the video clips for the song and really enjoyed your teaching and the quality of the video.

It is helping me to also refer to your tab at the same time to see which finger hits which string.

Thanks again for your time and effort.

Paul, USA

p.s. once I get this down I hope to purchase some more of your DVD's.'

 

'May I say that the DVD is excellent on every level - the sound, color,clarity and the lessons are very clear!

The Images below refer to the 'The Water Is Wide' & 'You Can Close Your Eyes' DVDs, the layout is similar only three cameras are used to show the hands more clearly in the second DVD, as the song is very intricate to play, with hybrid picking and frailing/strumming.
