Here's a guitar lesson that will thrill, entertain, amaze and challenge you while imparting an array of great songs, licks and guitar arrangements.
Del Rey's powerful guitar skills have been inspired in equal parts by classic blues guitarists and barrelhouse piano players. Her dynamic style combines moving chords, funky grooves, blues riffs and the boogie-woogie bass lines that give this lesson its name.
Del methodically teaches five songs: Nothing in Rambling, Boogie Mysterioso, Straw Broom Boogie, On the Wall and Boogie Woogie Country Girl. After performing each one, she expertly breaks it down, providing musical analyses of her thumb-and-three finger picking, her chord work and the integration of bass lines into the blues arrangement. Working in a variety of keys and tunings (dropped D and open G), she introduces you to the concept of movable chords and walking basses, and the standard boogie bass can be played while picking riffs on the high strings.
This DVD, filled with good humor and exciting playing, will provide you with the tools to add dazzling new dimensions to your guitar playing.
