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.

Sunday Bloody Sunday, U2

Sunday Bloody Sunday, U2, fingerstyle acoustic guitar arrangement

Welcome to my 461st solo fingerstyle guitar on YouTube, "Sunday, Bloody Sunday" by U2. A song I have played on and off over the years, I thought I'd "milk" a little bit that sweet movement in the harmony, the Fmaj7, E-7, D, and use it as an intro and outro, why not...

Overjoyed, Stevie Wonder

Overjoyed, Stevie Wonder, Fingerstyle Guitar, studio and live versions

Welcome to my 459th solo fingerstyle guitar on YouTube, "Overjoyed" by Stevie Wonder. This time something a little different, two versions back-to-back: the first is the usual studio version of the kind I record every Friday. Immediately following, a live version captured with my phone at my gig earlier in the week at The Earle Restaurant in Ann Arbor. I'm not sure which I like more - the first has obviously better sound and fewer mistake but the live version has a certain charm... Which do you prefer??

Synchronicity II

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.
