NYC recital. Surrounded by talented players and a
room full of my signature Martin guitars. (had to take a photo) Honored!

 

"Woody Mann is a first class guitar player, a first rate performer and a knowledgeable scholar of traditional and vernacular music if there ever was one. His teachers included Reverend Gary Davis early on, and later, the venerable blind pianist Lenny Tristano. So the question naturally arises, what kind of teacher is he? With these three videos, Woody gives us the answer: he is a very good one." – SING OUT MAGAZINE

Many talented musicians offer DVD lessons, but not all are gifted teachers. A teacher who possesses the gift of teaching can anticipate where students may struggle, and will revisit the issue at hand repeatedly. Woody Mann is a terrific performer, but is a gifted teacher. It has the “line up on line, precept upon precept” feel that is so necessary for successful teaching.

 

Woody Mann is a man who knows his business of blues guitar thoroughly. Blind Blake is easily the toughest/most skillful blues player ever seen, so you really need some good instruction to get inside to the secrets of Mr. Blake. Woody Mann is very good teacher. In fact, I'm actually trying to avoid other teachers and buying only his videos and other teaching material, because he is so good at it. – M. Jaatinen/Amazon Customer Review
