James, Pat Metheny, Solo Guitar Cover & Lesson

James, Pat Metheny: Guitar Cover & Lesson

I have quite a few Pat Metheny compositions arranged and performed for solo fingerstyle guitar on my YT channel such as Travels, Dream of the Return, Follow Me, Every Summer Night and more.

Today, a classic, James, from Offramp and not only that but a short lesson and the end of the video, check it out!

JAMES - The FULL LESSON:

Guitarists - over the past several weeks I have been overwhelmed with requests to create a video lesson for my arrangement of "James", see video below (which already contains a short demonstration!). I have gladly accepted, I have recorded the lesson and it is now available! It tuns nearly two hours, every note is shown slowly and in closeup. It is available either by DVD or download, contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for your copy.

Whether you're into fingerstyle, jazz, solo guitar or just love this song, this lesson is for you! If I was to show only the notes I play, the lesson would probably only take 15-20 minutes... So why do my lessons have such a long running time? Because through specific song arrangements I teach solo guitar arranging in general. While I go over every note of the arrangement, I also branch out to many side topics that make any arrangement come alive - right hand, rhythm, harmony, dynamics, improvisation, etc. Again, contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots.
