Greg's first instructional DVD has just been released. Basic FREE HANDS Technique, Leaning the Chapman Stick from the Bottom Up, is the first Stick instructional DVD dedicated exclusively to your technique development. This two-hour DVD focuses on Greg's emphasis on hand movement to support the fingers developed as a player and teacher of Emmett's method.

All the basic elements of Stick playing — basslines, chords in both hands, melodies, improvisation and hand independence — can all enhanced by supporting the movement of the fingers with movement of the hands and arms.

"It's all about freeing your hands. Greg's new DVD carries my Free Hands discovery to a level of intimacy and focus that a book simply can't convey. Learning his physical hand-movement based approach will add versatility, flexibility and sonic power to your two-handed tapping."
      —Emmett Chapman
