"Jody Stecher, who is basically a teacher to me, opened up my ears to more beautiful music than anyone else ever did...than I ever knew existed. He is also one of my favorite musicians on Earth to play with. I have never known anyone so intensely and completely enveloped in music. It's my suspicion that if you drained all the music out of Jody, you could carry what was left around in an eye dropper." – David Bromberg
Jody Stecher's guitar arrangements are blues tinged, banjo influenced and highly inventive. They are fluid, evolving and subject to flights of fancy and improvisation in actual performance. Yet, they contain a lot that is "fixed" or repeated from performance to performance. The seven arrangements presented in this DVD lesson are crystallizations of the motifs and patterns typically used by Jody when playing these tunes. Five tunings and four styles of picking are presented.
Titles include: Boat's Up The River, Buddy Won't You Roll Down The Line, Red Rocking Chair, Old Country Stomp, Casey Jones, Riley And Spencer and Those Two Blue Eyes
