Brief course description

Blues guitar lessons cover many genres inside this musical form. Blues guitar developed from the African-American community & can be sad in the Delta style from the deep South, or happy in the Piedmont ragtime guitar style of playing which is evident in all forms of modern jazz, rhythm & blues. Between the two there are a group of acoustic blues guitar players who used many standard chord progressions to play with a definite swing, sill using blues notes, but a step up from the standard twelve bar blues.

Learn Acoustic Blues Guitar In The Old Style

Big Bill Broonzy and Brownie McGhee are two great examples of blues men who excelled at adapting traditional blues verses, using shuffles, walking basses and all the usual tricks but giving it that certain ‘groove’; almost like rock and roll. The five lessons in this course take a look at just one of McGhee’s songs – Livin With The Blues, and four of Broonzy’s.
