Songs and Arrangements to Enrich Your Playing
Keb' Mo' expertly accompanies his distinctively soulful songs with folk/blues fingerpicking, swampy slide licks, contemporary pop chords and a touch of jazz. The seven arrangements he teaches on this lesson are simple enough for early intermediate guitarists, but provide enough twists and turns to interest advanced musicians as well.
With his easy-going humor and deep musical knowledge, Keb' Mo' makes it a joy to play along with this lesson. You'll learn unusual chord shapes, a variety of tunings, bottleneck/slide technique, picking patterns and seven beautiful songs from his award-winning repertoire: Your Love, Life is Beautiful, I'll Be Your Water, Every Morning, Eileen, Tell Everybody I Know and a bluesy slide arrangement of America the Beautiful.
Keb's songs are accessible to most learning players. The interesting part comes when he adds his "surprise" harmonies, - unexpected chords and ear-catching progressions. His stated intention is "to inspire you by showing you things about the guitar that will help you make choices in your music based on what you feel in your heart."
