C.F. MARTIN & HIS GUITARS 1796-1873 Philip F. Gura LIBRO CHITARRE ACUSTICHE Centerstream



Series: Reference
Publisher: Centerstream Publications
Format: Softcover
Author: Philip F. Gura

The Martin is considered the finest acoustic guitar in the world, a distinction it has held for more that 160 years. Martin guitars have been played by performers Eric Clapton, Stephen Stills, Judy Collins, and Johnny Cash, as well as hundreds of thousands of other professional and amateur musicians. In C.F. Martin and His Guitars, 1796-1873, Philip Gura chronicles the career of Christian Frederick Martin from his humble start as an importer and repairman of musical instruments in New York City in the 1830s through his move to Nazareth, Pennsylvania, and the founding of C.F. Martin & Company. Gura is the first historian to thoroughly study the Martin company records dating back to the 1830s: Letters, account books, inventories, and other documents. Using this rich archive, Gura establishes how a German immigrant from Saxony's guild tradition became the finest American guitar maker of his time and created a uniquely American business that successfully eclipsed its competition.

As Gura shows, Martin's success was based on his successful navigation of the rapid economic expansion and industrialization of his time. The many sketches and hundreds of photographs illustrate how Martin adapted his artisanal craft to modern industrial methods, maintaining quality while meeting increased demand for instruments. Gura traces the network of suppliers who provided Martin with his raw materials and explores the advertising and other methods Martin employed to build a market for his goods. After Martin's death in 1873, the company continued to grow. It thrives today under the leadership of a sixth-generation Martin, producing instruments that are still the most sought after and collectable in the world. Includes an 80-page color section!

“Philip Gura's research about the life and times of my great-great-great-grandfather Christian Frederick Martin Sr. provides an incredibly valuable addition to the understanding of our company and family archives. No one before has taken the time to unravel his amazing story with such fastidious detail. Cheers to Mr. Gura for his valiant efforts.” – C.F. Martin IV Chairman and CEO, C. F. Martin & Co.
“Until now C.F. Martin has been a legendary figure about whom we knew little. Philip Gura's book gives all who love Martin guitars what they never have had, a detailed portrait of the founder of the world's most famous guitar company. C.F. Martin and His Guitars is a wonderful book for anyone interested in the guitar and its history.” – Stephen Stills
C.F. Martin and His Guitars is a fascinating and high resolution snapshot of C.F. Martin the man and C.F. Martin the company. In a much greater sense, the book capturers the flavor and essence of American life in the mid-1800's – a time of tremendous integrity and change. For Martin guitar aficionados as well as students of American culture, this book is a vital link. – Dick Boak, Artist Relations and Limited Editions, C.F. Martin & Co.

Welcome to the second book, Acoustic Blues Guitar, Intermediate level. For those of you unfamiliar with my previous book, Introduction to Acoustic Blues, (What else?), we will be trying to play finger-style acoustic blues the old-fashioned way. The rules are as stated:

1. have fun

2. play loose

3. play with feeling

4. don't worry about mistakes

Sound easy enough? Remember, this is a book about Lightnin' Hopkins, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Blind Blake and other funky guys. So just have fun, and go with the flow. We will cover blues in five different keys and positions, A, C, D, E, and G – these are the keys I primarily use, and they are the best for acoustic blues. We will also incorporate slide or bottleneck playing in both open and standard tunings. All songs will be played primarily finger-style with a monotone bass used for most of the straight blues and an alternating bass used for the ragtime blues. On the 70-minute cassette tape that accompanies this book, I play each example and every song. Most of the songs are played at slow speed and at regular tempo, and nearly all of the tunes will have a detailed explanation about the music and how to best play it. This book is one step harder than my previous book and should prove to be a good challenge for you. Blues guitar is different than other styles of guitar in that there is more feel involved than technique. It is very important that you use the tablature only as a guide to your ears. The accompanying tape will be your most valuable tool. All the nuances of the blues cannot be written down properly; listening is the only way to really absorb all the material. My suggestion is to listen to the tape before you try any of the songs. Hear exactly what you're supposed to do, then read the music to help you create the sound desired. In my workshops, classes, and private lessons, I urge my students to learn everything by ear. I rarely use written music, but under these circumstances the written notation should be used, but not relied upon exclusively. Memorize each song, then put the written material away. Try to let your own personal feelings come through in your playing. Make each song an individual experience. Remember, this isn't classical music, so play it loose. Don't worry about mistakes, and above all.

Fingerpicks Strings Capo's
Before we close, there are a few more things I would like to discuss. The first is fingerpicks.
I use them, but I'm not sure I would recommend them to all my students. They are very
awkward and hard to get used to. If you want to try them anyway, I would recommend a Herco
thumbpick and Dunlop fingerpicks. The picks will make your guitar sound louder, enable you to
play faster, and make the brush technique easier. But again, they are difficult to use. If you are
having trouble, try turning the picks gently towards your thumb so they are slightly off center.
This will help with the angle of attack and eliminate some pick noise.
My favorite strings are made by John Pearse. If these aren't available, Martin guitar strings
are excellent. I use medium gauge or on occasion, medium lights. As far as a capo, there is only
one that works for me, and it is made by Schubb. It is easy to get on and off the guitar neck and it
doesn't pull the strings out of tune.
The guitars I play vary, but my favorites are a 1936 Martin 000-18, a Santa Cruz OM
model, and a new National style "0" resonator guitar. All are great instruments, and I highly recommend them. Both the Santa Cruz and the National are heard on the cassette tape.

Well, I hope you enjoyed the book and didn't become too frustrated with
my methods. Have patience, and it will all come together. If you find this book
too difficult, try to check out Blues Guitar, An Introduction to Acoustic Blues also
from Centerstream Publications.
Remember to listen to the tape continuously and don't rely only on the
music. This will help you get the proper feel for the music. (I can't stress this
enough!) It is also very important to listen to as much other recorded blues as
possible. The musicians I think you should listen to include John Lee Hooker,
Johnny Shines, Robert Johnson, Brownie McGhee, John Hammond, Taj Mahal,
Rev. Gary Davis, Snooks Eaglin, Lightnin' Hopkins, and Mississippi John Hurt to
mention a few.
I personally have five albums out with my partner, Tom Ball, the newest
entitled, "Filthy Rich" (FF 619). Tom is an excellent harmonica
player/vocalist/guitarist, and we cover a wide variety of blues styles on these
recordings. They are available from your better record stores or from Flying Fish
Records, Chicago, IL, or from myself:
Kenny Sultan, Santa Barbara,
Also, feel free to write me if you have any questions about this book. This
is the second in a series of blues guitar books I am doing for Ron Middlebrook at
Centerstream Publications, so keep an eye out for the next Blues Guitar book.
Until then, good luck with your playing, stay loose.

About The Author. Kenny Sultan has been playing guitar since the age of seven. Soon thereafter, his brother introduced him to the Blues of T-Bone Walker and Lightnin' Hopkins. The effect was permanant. A noted teacher, he has taught music, guitar and blues at the College level. Kenny has also conducted workshops and seminars  throughout the country. He has five albums to his credit with his partner Tom Ball and has appeared as a sideman on numerous recordings by other artists. He currently resides in Santa Barbara, California.

What on Earth would make someone want to build an electric guitar from scratch? Can't you just buy one cheaper? What happens if it doesn't tum out? These questions and many many, more will be asked of you as you plow along through the excitement and anxity of building your first guitar. It does help if you're a little bit different and it's very true that it would be both faster and cheaper to just go buy one off the rack. But it wouldn't be the same one would it? Its fairly safe to assume that spending some time on this project will not be a problem for you. If you need an axe for a gig this weekend you're in the wrong place. You're going to have an investment of approximately $500 in your instrument and there are lots of $500 guitars out there, but how many will have the exact Seymour Duncan or EMG pickups and cusm tom deigned switching you want, the Schaller hard- ware and custom finish; yours will. Your guitar will also have that intangible, indescribable feeling that comes from creating something out of, well I can't say nothing, but you get the picture. Friends and relatives will say you're nuts and that you're wasting your time and money and then they'll want you to build them one too. I started building guitars almost by accident. I wanted a Fender Telecaster so badly, but I just couldn't come up with the money to buy one. I was hanging around in my favorite guitar store one day just being a nuisance when a guy came in with a box of guitar parts. He had a neck, a plywood Tele style body, and two of almost everything else; two pickguards, sets of pickups, bridges, etc. He had taken an el cheapo copy guitar and tried to upgrade it with new parts but nothing had fit where it was supposed to go and he was trying to trade the whole mess in on a new guitar. When the store told him they wouldn't take any of it in trade he asked them where the dumpster was. I politely showed him to the hatchback of my little station wagon and I had my Tele. All I had to do was re-assemble it and make it work. I did, and it did, and I was hooked. A short time later I was reading an article in Guitar Player on hot-rodding guitars and "kit" guitars.

First connect each pickup directly to the jack. Use temporary connections like alligator clips for this. They'll hum a bit for lack of shielding but will tell you if the parts are working right. Remember this technique is for problems with pickups and switches not working, and not for chasing down hum. After you've determined that each pickup works, you can connect them to the next item in the chain. This could be a volume pot, mini toggle switch or the main pickup selector depending on your design. Test the circuit after each part is added to the chain and sooner or later you will run into the problem again, only now you know exactly where it is and you can deal with it specifically. The wiring is complete and I'm tightening in the Electrosocket jack plate. "good solder joint/ bad solder joint" drawings. These can short out against other components or against the shield and cause the switch not to work as expected. in connecting your hot leads. Check your plan and your connections care- full y. Look for stray strands of wire that may not have gone through the solder terminal cleanly as was shown in the I like to plug the guitar in and give it a test before I secure the output jack and the rear cover plate. I have found, on occasion, that the guitar works fine in the test but not after the remaining parts are fastened in place. This can be the result of a wire or component shorting against the shielded cover of the electronics compartment. Sometimes the output jack won't fit well in the access hole when the plug is inserted. Most times this can be corrected by rotating the jack in the hole but I have had to take a 1/2 round file in there and open up the hole to get a good fit. This can be an extremely time consuming process and is not one to undertake when you're in a hurry or a bad mood. If you get frustrated with trying to solve a particular problem, take a break. Let it sit for awhile and come back when you are rested and in a better frame of mind. Remember, this guitar has taken a long time to get to this point and you didn't get here by rushing through all the previous steps. Take your time, be thorough and methodical and you'll find the guilty part(y). Using a mini chisel to clear away excess lacquer from the control cover "lip". There are times when all these good ideas fail and things still just don't work right. This can be a frus- trating time and lots of folks will simply take every- thing apart and try re-wiring it from scratch. Some- times this works, but more often you fall into the same rut and make the same mistake you did originally. My approach in these cases is to re-wire just as you did the drawing; from the pickup on down the line. Well now you have it wired tested and ready to rock. You can go ahead and put the rear cavity cover in place (if you've used one) and screw it down. From here we move on to the fi- nal set up adjust- ments. Wired, tested and ready for the final set up.

GOSPEL GUITAR, VOLUME 1. FINGERPICKING AND TRAVIS STYLE. La musica Gospel è la musica dei canti religiosi dei neri d'America. Negli anni venti, prima della grande depressione che colpì gli Stati Uniti nel 1929, quando ai neri fu concesso di avere le proprie chiese, la canzone gospel si definì maggiormente, ed iniziò a diffondersi anche attraverso i dischi. In questo libro troverete alcuni tra i titoli più famosi di musica Gospel (Vangelo). Numerosi artisti della scena americana degli anni '50, iniziarono cantando in chiesa le canzoni sacre di questo libro. Ogni titolo è arrangiato in tre modi: per chitarra e canto, per chitarra fingerstyle e in Merle Travis style. Casualmente nel 1956 Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis e Johnny Cash si trovarono nello studio di registrazione nello stesso periodo, e durante gli intervalli cantarono insieme, divertendosi con alcune canzoni del repertorio Gospel. Siamo certi che questo libro vi aiuterà ad organizzare una vostra divertente Gospel "jam session" improvvisando con queste semplici e chiare melodie. Amazing grace -angel band -can the circle be unbroken -give me that old time religion -in the sweet bye and bye -just a closer walk with thee -life is like a mountain railroad -old gospel ship -rock of ages -swing low, sweet chariot -this train -walking in Jerusalem just like John -wayfaring stranger -when the saints go marching in.

About the Author:
Doug is a Canadian musician who has recorded and performed with a who's who of fellow Canadian and International musicians. He has toured in North America and Europe extensively as both a sideman and a frontman. A busy teacher, with his own instructional video series, Doug teaches guitar and Dobro at workshops across North America and has developed his own voice on his instruments. He appears on over 100 CDs as a sideman and has two solo recordings; "Canadian Borderline", and "Bone Bottle Brass or Steel", with a new release in the works! Doug hosts his own weekly TV music show in Canada called "Sittin' in with Doug Cox."

Playing in Open Tunings with and without a slide will add many new dimensions to your musical path. I hope the areas we have explored in this book will open new doors in your playing and understanding of music and the guitar. I would also like to emphasize my belief that everything I teach in this book simply reflects the way I approach the guitar and should not be taken as the right or wrong way to do things. I believe that aside from doing anything that causes you physical damage, there is no right or wrong way to play music. Do what you like and what works for you. I also encourage any music student to study with as many teachers as possible and learn what you can from every musical encounter you have. Thank you for studying with me and I hope to see you down the road! Doug Cox
