Pumping Nylon 2nd Edition 2016?

Post by DaveLloyd » Fri Feb 12, 2016 11:35 pm

Hi,

I hope I'm posting this in the correct section. If not MODs please move, or delete it.

Scott Tennant launched his new version of Pumping Nylon towards the end of January at NAMM 2016.

I'm just wondering if anyone here has their hands on it yet?

The new version has:-

". . . new pieces by Evan Hirschelman, Guiliani's Left Hand Etudes, Op. 1, and new technical exercises in tremolo and balancing chord voicings. The music engravings have been improved for easier reading, and all of the media is available online!"

I think the DVD is also new.

In the UK, it seems to have been available only on e - b a y, and direct from the USA until a day, or so ago.

I'm not sure how many versions there are; There is one that comes with DVD, CD, and online access. There is also one which comes without the physical DVD and CD, but includes the online access.

It is the one with online access only, which is currently available on e - b a y in the UK. I've ordered a copy, but it will take around a week to arrive, so I'm interested to know if anyone has actually seen the new version yet.

Dave

Yes! Similar experience for me. :( I only bought my copy recently!

Never mind! Let's hope the new version will be worth it!

Has your copy arrived? Any thoughts? I'd be interested to hear what the online material entails.

Apologies everyone!

I've been pretty busy recently, and simply haven't been able to visit the forum. :(

My copy did arrive a few days ago. It is indeed plastic comb bound, so it opens nicely on a music stand.

The version with the DVD wasn't available to me in/from the UK when I ordered, but, the basic version includes online access to mp3 audio files of the pieces included in the book i.e:-

1. Quadrival Quandry played by Cameron O'Connor — Andrew York
2. Fanfare played by Mark Grgic — Brian Head
3. May the Notes Be with You Movement 1 played by Evan Hirschelman — Evan Hirschelman
4. May the Notes Be with You Movement 2 played by Evan Hirschelman — Evan Hirschelman
5. Chant played by Scott Tennant — Brian Head
6. Shapeshifting played by Evan Hirschelman — Evan Hirschelman
7. Didactic Doodle played by Ines Thome — Andrew York

As @guitarrista mentions above . . .

Second Edition Includes:
* All of the original content
* Three new performance pieces
* Giuliani's Left-Hand Etudes, Op. 1
* New lessons and exercises
* Improved music engravings

Also, on the new version of the DVD (*edited for accuracy. Thanks @guitarrista for pointing this out), technical exercises in tremolo and balancing chord voicings, also some flamenco techniques Alzapua, and Rasguedo.

Not sure if I'm missing anything!

Each physical book comes with a code number printed inside the front cover, which, needs to be used when you sign up for online access at alfred.com. When online, I noticed that I could purchase online access to the DVD for a further $19.99, which I did. The new video is around 3 hours 45 minutes long. I really haven't had time to watch it, but skimming through it, it seems to consist largely of Scott Tennant going into more detail on the exercises and techniques than he did in the 1995 DVD, and, of course, all the performances on the mp3s are included on the DVD.

All the pieces above have been included because they complement the exercises (naturally). I think the three new pieces were written at Scott's request, especially for this new edition.

That seems to be pretty much it!

If I remember, or come across anything else I may have missed, I'll add it here.

Dave

PS. When you go online to access the mp3s, you have the option to listen to them online, or download alfred.com's Video on Demand player to play them on your PC, or other device, or in the cloud. The same applies to the DVD. The publishers Alfred, have teamed up with platformpurple.com to host the online material.

Hi Impy,

I feel responsible now — I really hope it meets your expectations! :D

I should just point out that I don't know how many versions there are, but certainly my basic version came comb bound.

Hi softmachine,

I don't know where you are located, but you could try Amazon, or e - b a y. There are people on e - b a y who are shipping it from the States to other countries.
