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.

Over the last few years Tony McManus has taken his fingerstyle skills from the Celtic tradition to European Classical Music. His performances and recordings of these explorations have been greeted with warm reviews:

"This music is beyond beautiful, it's PERFECT." -Tommy Emmanuel
"The playing is phenomenal." - John Renbourn
"World class! Masterful playing as always."- Steve Howe
"I have no superlatives to do this justice." - Dick Gaughan

In 1987 John Fahey and I performed several shows in California. We ended each concert with several duets. This rare audio recording was done in 1987 at McCabes in Santa Monica, California. We perform two classic Delta blues: Stone Pony Blues and Maggie Campbell.
