對於Fingerstyle,許多香港的朋友仍會感到陌生。但接觸過 Fingerstyle音樂的朋友就知道,單單一把結他,就能將觀眾帶進無限的境界,演奏出非常動聽、意境優美的音樂,效果之豐富,令人難以置信!
Guitar Concept的使命非常清晰,就是將Fingerstyle介紹給香港的朋友,讓更多人了解Fingerstyle 結他藝術。在Guitar Concept成立之前,到訪過香港的Fingerstyle結他手更可謂寥寥可數。由2011年起,我們每年都成功邀請世界各地頂尖的Fingerstyle 結他大師到香港演出,包括Tommy Emmanuel (澳洲)、Roland Dyens (法國)、Masaaki Kishibe (日本)、 Andy Mckee (美國)、Sungha Jung (韓國)、曹思義(中國)等,還有更多未能盡錄。
為了將Fingerstyle結他藝術繼續宣揚開去,今年8月,我們將會與香港演藝學院攜手舉辦一連4日的Guitar Week。在Guitar Week期間,我們除了邀請一眾世界各地頂尖的Fingerstyle 結他大師來港演出之外,還預備了工作坊、不同攤位、精美的結他音樂商品及特色飲品小食與你一起分享。希望能夠與大家一起感受Fingerstyle 結他箇中樂趣!

除了民謠結他,Don還喜歡研究學習其他樂器,包括電結他、Slide Dobro及lap steel結他、harp結他、鋼琴、電子琴、鼓等等。最近,他剛剛開始學Kelstone,由比利時音樂家 / 發明家 Jan Van Kelst發明的9弦結他。此時,他不得不承認,由頭開始學新樂器,"實在太難了。我是一個Kelstone新手,而且彈得很差!"

The first Canadian guitarist and the only one to win the U.S. National Fingerpick Guitar Championship twice. His album Huron Street reached the top ten on the Billboard New-age chart. He has toured regularly since 1989, across Canada, the USA, a dozen European countries, Japan, Taiwan, China, Australia, Russia and India.

He has just started learning to play the Kelstone, a 9-string guitar developed by Belgian musician / inventor Jan Van Kelst. At this point, Don admits that learning a new instrument from scratch at this point in his career is "humbling. I'm a rank amateur Kelstone player, and I still completely suck at it!"

Jacky Lau 劉卓威 Jacky Lau Hong Kong 香港 Hong Kong

Jacky畢業於香港演藝學院,主修結他演奏,雖然他入學時跳讀了2年級,但他從來沒有擁有過一個degree,主要是因為他腦裡那些出奇的構思和*ADHD的細胞,推使他取得高級演奏文憑後,就立即離開了學校,急不及待踏上「成為結他手」的冒險旅程。幸運的是:畢業的同年,他就獲唱片公司賞識,邀請他出版第一張個人唱片《Amazing Guitar.Amazing Grace》。
跟據Jacky的描述,宇宙裡一直有兩股強大的力量,牽引著他的人生,第一是「唔彈結他會死」的熱誠,其次是「小強般打不死」的頑固,就是這兩股力量,驅使他排除萬難,去到地球的另一邊(美國),與世上最出色的結他監製- Kim Person合作完成了第二張專輯 -《Move On》,在香港出版後,迅即擠身HMV最受歡迎之十大唱片,以及HK Record之銷量排行榜三甲,並…… (下省三千字)
至今Jacky 仍未能相信的震撼事實,是Tommy Emmanuel(地球上最強的Fingerstyle結他大師) 曾公開稱讚他的演奏為Impeccable (無懈可擊);更向傳媒極力推薦他的唱片!
16年,Jacky成為全球僅14名應邀之結他演奏家之一,代表香港,與來自各國之頂尖演奏家,包括Don Ross(加拿大)、Luca Stricagnoli (意大利)、以及一些你多數未聽過的名字,於北京同台演出。他也曾應邀到訪過很多國家演出,如日本、迪拜、南非等等,還有許許多多名字太長,未能抄出來的Festival……
Jacky曾連續超過10天睡在辦公室,每天埋頭苦幹18小時,成功製作出「You Raise Me Up結他曲集」!但他人生最瘋狂的一次,卻是看到Youtube裡一位非洲奇人彈結他之後,竟真的出發去了非洲一個多月,深入Botswana的森林,穿越了無數危險,終於在一個荒蕪之處找到這位奇人,並跟他學習了一星期結他(只能用手語)!
或許因為這「像電影情節」般誇張的決心,打動了香港演藝學院,把他評選為全港僅三位之一的Alumni Star星級校友;同年,英國牛津大學出版社更訪問Jacky,將他的故事列入其教科書的課文主題;2015年,他更獲提名為「香港青年夢想實踐家」,最後獲選成為十大得獎者之一。
因為Jacky是香港極少數 (< 於0.001%) 的人,仍然相信「夢想可以當飯食」,所以他以畢生的心血(和金錢)創辦了一間名為Guitar Concept的結他學校,以他「想做就做,不顧後果」的失敗營商之道,至今奇蹟地運作到第8年,擁有超過400位學生。目前,他也是香港演藝學院30多年來,唯一一位Fingerstyle結他講師,但真正讓他感到驕傲的,是他讓Fingerstyle結他成為了演藝學院裡的正式科目,對日後香港,甚至亞洲結他界的發展,產生了一定的影響!
Jacky至今最引以為傲的偉大成就之一,就是曾經帶Roland Dyens(地球上最出色的結他作曲家)坐纜車登上太平山,向他展示美麗的香港!
