"First and foremost in sensibility and skills, Donohue is a guitarist...His listening and playing recapitulate the evolution of 20th Century American popular music, as he works his way through country blues to ragtime and early jazz to swing, bop and post-bop." – Acoustic Guitar
Are you interested in challenging, difficult and advanced fingerstyle solos that stretch from a New Orleans standard to a Sonny Rollins's jazz classic to a Booker T. & The M.G.s rock hit? If so, then this video lesson is for you. Pat Donohue has prepared a one hour and forty minute lesson that presents six great arrangements. Pat best described his approach: "For me, folk and jazz have always been closely related. They both evolved through the idiosyncrasies of basically unschooled but extremely talented musicians who, playing from the heart, found new ways to express themselves. As a folk guitarist with the heart of a jazz saxophonist, I hope my playing in some way bridges the gap."
Titles include: High Society, Downtown Stomp, St.Thomas, The Mooch, Tequila and Green Onions.
