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.

Last Train Home (Pat Metheny) - Fingerstyle Acoustic Guitar

Last Train Home (Pat Metheny) - Fingerstyle Acoustic Guitar

My 450th solo guitar video on YouTube, Last train home by pat Metheny. To me, First Circle, Still Life (Talking) and Letter From Home will always be THE Pat Metheny trilogy and the most influential on me. My arrangement changes a few of the original elements, I didn't go for that Choo-Choo rhythm and I also changed the key to suit the arrangement better. As I'm working towards a goal of 500 solo guitar videos on YouTube, I think I will incorporate the acoustic more. Here, also, is a Pat Metheny playlist of my many solo guitar arrangements https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T8cKv....

Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer - solo jazz guitar

I hope everybody is having a great holiday season! I have discovered in my analytic that my videos no longer appear in the "suggested videos" to the right and that my search rankings have dropped by some 75%... :-/ If I am to continue posting these videos which i know you like, we have to let the YouTube algorithm know that people are in fact engaging with my videos to restore rankings and so I need you to help me with a few simple steps: First, hit subscribe/bell. Then, like and comment on this video. Then, a few more minutes of your time, please pick out 3-5 more videos from my channel, view (ideally the whole thing, but let's say at least a minute or two) and, again, like, comment and share with friends/family social media. I would really like to reach 500 videos... Thank you!
