Welcome!

Ibanez In recent years, performing and arranging for solo guitar has become the main focus of my work as a guitarist. The main purpose, therefore, of this website is to provide you with links to my many video performances on YouTube, my instructional DVDs and downloadable lessons, and other lessons currently available with Hal Leonard Publishing. The vast majority of these lessons are sharply focused on arranging for solo guitar with my “flagship” two-hour lesson “How To Arrange Any Song For Solo Guitar” as well as 70+ additional full length song-specific arrangement lessons. For in-depth info click on the “Videos & Guitar Lessons” tab above.

Having said that, you'll still find plenty information and links to my work with prog-rock band THEO, fusion band FourFusion, the The Gwenyth Hayes Band, the Brad McNett duo, trio and quartet as well as many additional projects, recordings and collaborations I’m involved with. There are links to my performance schedule, booking information (look at the bottom right of the page) and, of course, info on music sales, CDs as well as downloads – please just look through the various tabs and buttons. Blog style posts and news updates will be posted in the modules below. Feel free to email me jake.reichbart@gmail.com with any questions or requests.

You Make Me Feel So Young

I feel a little bit like Ryan O'Neal in the movie Paper Moon for posting this video, but WTH. We were in our post-thanksgiving pajamas yesterday and I thought the song was most appropriate as I'm a slightly older guy with young kids.

John Coltrane - Fingerstyle Guitar

Moment's Notice, John Coltrane
