Welcome!

Comins 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.

Synchronicity II - The police - Fingerstyle Acoustic Guitar Arrangement

Welcome to my 454th solo guitar video on YouTube, "Synchronicity II" by The Police. This is a bit of a unique post among my videos in that I already posted an arrangement of this song during my earliest days on YouTube some 10 years ago. There are a small handful of such arrangements that I thought I could improve on in terms of the arrangement itself, execution and tone.

The Windmills of Your Mind - fingerstyle acoustic guitar

The Windmills of Your Mind - fingerstyle acoustic guitar

Welcome to my 453rd solo guitar video on YouTube, the classic and beautiful "The Windmills of Your Mind" by the genius Michel Legrand. This version blends, in my mind, my own childhood memories of the song as the theme from The Thomas Crown Affair with the more contemporary version by Sting (from whom I have "borrowed" a voicing or two...). Anyway, as I'm working towards a goal of 500 solo guitar videos on YouTube, I think I will incorporate the acoustic more.

Goin' Out of My Head - solo jazz guitar

Goin' Out of My Head - solo jazz guitar

My 452nd solo guitar video on YouTube, the classic and beautiful Goin' Out of My Head first recorded by Little Anthony and the Imperials. Am I the only person who always thought this was a Burt Bacharach song? As I started working on this arrangement a couple of weeks ago I discovered it was written by Teddy Randazzo and Bobby Weinstein. There are countless versions recorded, not the least by Wes Montgomery and Dionne Warwick (maybe that's why I was thinking Bacharach...).
