Welcome to our Online Shop

Welcome to Stefan Grossman's Guitar Workshop and Vestapol Videos, offering the best in instructional guitar DVDs, Audio CDs and Books, and the Vestapol series of historic and concert DVDs. We offer a wide variety of DVD and CD audio lessons focusing on various aspects of fingerstyle and flatpicking guitar styles and techniques.

You'll find Nashville fingerstyle, Country and Delta Blues, Ragtime, Celtic, Swing Jazz, Rockabilly, Classic Ragtime, and straight Jazz lessons in our catalog. Our DVD lessons present the finest in clear and incisive visual education. 

Each tune is performed in full and then explained. This is followed by the piece being played slowly on a split screen, allowing the student to see both the right and left hand movements. Everything played during the split screen segments is transcribed and presented in a PDF tab/music booklet that is on the DVD lesson. Bonus audio tracks are included on our Country Blues lessons.


This DVD lesson is for intermediate and advanced fingerstyle guitarists. Chet performs and describes in detail, phrase by phrase, the playing of nine of his classic arrangements. 

"Someone once asked me to estimate how many guitar lessons I've had in my lifetime," Chet has said. "The answer is simple -- none. There were no teachers in our neighborhood when I was learning. And if there had been I doubt whether they would have taught me with that shabby guitar of mine. But I kept a lookout for any stray 'picker' that wandered into town and if he knew any new runs I would learn them before he left."

You are fortunate -- your teacher for this lesson is one of the foremost fingerstyle guitar masters in the history of the guitar. Have fun!

Titles include: Maybelle, Petite Waltz, Happy Again, Londonderry Aire, When You Wish Upon A Star, Young Thing, Bye Bye Blackbird, Mr. Bo Jangles and Lover Come Back
