My name is Mike Ihde and I've been teaching guitar at Berklee College of Music in Boston MA USA since 1972. I play guitar, pedal steel and lap steel. I have classes at Berklee in Lap Steel and I'm the main proponent of the Leavitt Tuning for Lap Steel.
Finally, after almost 3 years of hard work, my 3rd Guitar book "The 333 Book" (333 Licks, Tricks and Techniques Every Guitarist Should Know) is done and ready for shipping!!!
Rather than tell you all about it in this e-mail, just go to my new web site www.mikeihde.com
and read about it, listen to some audio clips and watch a few video clips.
The book is a compilation of everything I've learned an taught over the last 35 years at Berklee College of Music.
It comes with a DVD that has 240 recorded examples of the licks and tricks (with a full band) for more than 2 and a half
hours of music as well as over 6 hours of video of various artists giving performance/interviews.
The artists are: Abe Laboriel (bass), Buddy Emmons and Doug Jernigan (pedal steel guitar), Phil Keaggy (alternate tunings acoustic guitar), Ray Flacke (country tele), Alison Brown (banjo new acoustic music), Joe Stump (metal), Pete Huttlinger (solo acoustic fingerpicking), Bobbe Seymour and Billy Robinson (lap steel guitar), Richie Hart (Jazz Wes Montgomery/Benson style), and David Tronzo (slide guitar).
It's being distributed by Mel Bay so it will be available in your local music store at some point, but you can buy it now directly from my web site. www.mikeihde.com
Please spread the word to all your guitar player and guitar teacher friends.
