OVERVIEW

Create that true blues sound with these lap-style slide guitar techniques.

Slide Guitar for Blues Lap Steel is a DVD-and-tablature combo that teaches the funky blues tunes, cool riffs, and adventurous improvisations Bob Brozman pulls from his seemingly bottomless bag of tricks. His tutorial on lap slide guitar will open up exciting musical ideas and powerful techniques for anyone craving the real blues sound.

Level 3: Early Intermediate-You have been playing a while and can play some songs and/or instrumentals without too much difficulty. Now you want to move into specific styles, develop your repertoire and increase your technique. The instructor still covers the material in detail, but there are more challenges.

Bob Brozman uses a variety of instruments - a Weissenborn, a Dobro-type resophonic and a National steel - to teach the funky blues tunes, cool riffs and adventurous improvisations that he pulls from his seemingly bottomless bag of tricks. His course in lap style slide guitar will open up exciting musical ideas and powerful techniques for anyone who wants to get into the real blues sound.

Playing in open D and open G tunings, Bob passes along all the sounds and techniques that make up this compelling style. He teaches pieces that range from the "primitive" one-chord renditions of Charlie Patton to modern-day country/swing blues.

You'll get instruction in the use of the round-nose bar and how you can attain quality vibrato, pitch precision, good tone, blue notes, rhythmic effects and control of the slide. Bob details licks, turnarounds and improvisations along with numerous exercises and right hand picking drills to help you develop your picking strength.

By the time you complete this lesson you'll have an arsenal of licks and the improvisational skills you'll need to go on to even more challenging material.

Note: You can use any guitar to play this style, although it would be best to have one with a high action.

Comments about Homespun Slide Guitar for Blues Lap Steel DVD 1:

You have a tendency to want to skip ahead-Brozman could emphasize to "take it slow" & learn each exercise before advancing the DVD.

      Comments about Homespun Slide Guitar for Blues Lap Steel DVD 1:

      Bob Brozman has lots of ideas on approaching the lap steel guitar from a blues perspective. He uses open G and open D tunings, which are popular for bottleneck slide guitar blues. His tone bar is the bullet style, which gives certain advantages over other tone bar styles, such as doing single notes easily and rolling the bar for vibrato/bending effects. His advice is solid on other details about making the lap steel come alive. However, you won't learn country pedal steel because that's a different instrument. This set of lessons keeps to the blues while borrowing techniques that Brozman has encountered along the way with his bottleneck slide work on National Resophonics and Dobros. And he's right about the lap steel having lots of unexplored territory that goes beyond the 1950s fad with Hawaiian sounds and the sad wailing from country pedal steel. Borozman's lessons make a great place from which to launch your own sonic adventures on the lap steel.
