Voicing the Guitar, DVD

 

By Ervin Somogyi

If you are a friend of the guitar to the point of having become interested in guitar construction, than you will have been bitten by the bug of trying to figure out how to make a guitar with a really good voice. If you are a player, you might have wondered why different guitars sound so different. There are dozens of books out now about how to build a guitar, but rather little information available about the finer points of working with its sound.

Ervin Somogyi's guitars are known for having extraordinarily satisfying voices; they have been described as lustrous, deep, and astonishing. Having reached the age where he is ready to share his knowledge, he has also become the premier teacher of that final level of lutherie work: Tone.

This DVD is the companion to Ervin's recently published two volume book, The Responsive Guitar (BM84) about the guitar and its sound. This material pertains equally to the classic guitar and to the steel string guitar; it will be of interest to musicians, acousticians, and aficionados.
