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.

After 25 years as a session guitarist and record producer, Alberto Lombardi fell in love with fingerstyle acoustic guitar. He has performed his arrangements both in Italy and abroad, from small clubs in New York City and London, to renowned guitar festivals held in Sarzana and Ferentino, Italy.

Alberto's arrangements are rooted in the style of the great Chet Atkins and Tommy Emmanuel but also influenced by the 1950's big band sound. His arrangements of American and Italian classics, (Georgia On My Mind, Volare) show the inventive harmonic movements from those great arrangers and composers of the times. Alberto also writes his own material, both fingerstyle instrumentals and as a singer/songwriter.
