OVERVIEW

Delve deeper into the blues.

In this second lesson, the focus is on the keys of G and D. The playing techniques of Blind Lemon Jefferson, Rev. Gary Davis, Tommy Johnson, and Lonnie Johnson are discussed as well as many other facets of fingerpicking in these keys. The DVD travels from the Carolinas to Texas to the Mississippi Delta to the sophisticated sounds of Lonnie Johnson. This is a challenging lesson that will illustrate different right and left hand techniques.

As in the first lesson, the aim is to give you a freedom to improvise playing a blues in these keys. As a bonus feature, audio tracks are included featuring rare recordings of the songs and styles presented.

Each tune is taught phrase-by-phrase and played slowly on a split-screen. A detailed tab/music booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD. This includes lyrics to the songs as well as tab/music transcriptions of the guitar playing.

Tunes include: "Blues in G," "Easy Rider," "Return to Little Rock," "Mama Let Me Lay It On You," "Blues Ain't Dry," "Careless Love," "Big Road Blues," "Canned Heat Blues," "and Blues in D." 76 minutes.
