Welcome to Stefan Grossman's Guitar Workshop and Vestapol Videos, offering the best in instructional guitar DVDs, Audio CDs and Books, and the Vestapol series of historic and concert DVDs. We offer a wide variety of DVD and CD audio lessons focusing on various aspects of fingerstyle and flatpicking guitar styles and techniques.

You'll find Nashville fingerstyle, Country and Delta Blues, Ragtime, Celtic, Swing Jazz, Rockabilly, Classic Ragtime, and straight Jazz lessons in our catalog. Our DVD lessons present the finest in clear and incisive visual education. 

Each tune is performed in full and then explained. This is followed by the piece being played slowly on a split screen, allowing the student to see both the right and left hand movements. Everything played during the split screen segments is transcribed and presented in a PDF tab/music booklet that is on the DVD lesson. Bonus audio tracks are included on our Country Blues lessons.


In 1987 John Fahey and I performed several shows in California. We ended each concert with several duets. This rare audio recording was done in 1987 at McCabes in Santa Monica, California. We perform two classic Delta blues: Stone Pony Blues and Maggie Campbell.


featuring Skip James, Bukka White, Son House, Rev. Gary Davis, Sam Chatmon, Big Bill Broonzy, Will Shade, Ralph Willis, Willie Trice, Blind Connie Williams and Henry Johnson

This DVD collection presents some of the rarest footage of legendary Country Blues artists that we havebeen fortunate to find.
