Fingerpicking Blues: Lesson Two
Roy Book Binder's back again! This time, his in-depth exploration of blues techniques concentrates on chords and positions needed to play in the essential key of A. With his trademark wit and good humor, Roy encourages you to take his "book of tricks" and incorporate them into your own playing to build repertoire and arrangements in traditional fingerpicking style.
The popular performer teaches songs, turnarounds, chord variations, right hand rhythms and his own unique approach to blues guitar with powerful arrangements in the styles of Pink Anderson, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Jesse "Baby Face" Thomas and others.
Roy then puts these elements into play with traditional country blues tunes, including the classic How Long Blues, Every Day Of The Week, Texas Blues, and his original show-stoppers New Age Woman Blues and Polk City Ramble. Turning to open D (Vestapol) tuning, Roy finishes his lesson with Anywhere You Go I Can Go There Too.
This delightful lesson in fingerstyle blues guitar with one of America's best-loved performers will delight aspiring fingerpickers, as well as all fans of "The Book!"
