In his first lesson for Homespun, the excellent German fingerstyle blues artist Rainer Brunn teaches five classic numbers that will bolster your repertoire and expand your arsenal of licks. We’re proud to introduce him to a new audience as he brings his formidable chops to this carefully organized and articulately-taught video.

Rainer opens the lesson with Keep It Clean, a lively Charley Jordan tune in E that will keep your fingers busy with slides, licks and great runs. 

Working out of the G shape, Frank Stokes’ Downtown Blues utilizes a steady bass along with some thumb/index finger eighth notes and groovy syncopations in the melody.

The always popular Hesitation Blues, in E minor, incorporates some thumb techniques that go beyond straight alternating bass picking, as well as dynamic chord inversions and single-string lines to achieve a beautiful chord/melody arrangement.

Willie Brown’s M & O Blues is a real gem, a funky blues that isn’t covered in other lessons. There are some very cool embellishments, licks and phrases that will be fun to get under your fingers. 

The lesson closes with Buddy Bolden’s Blues, a Jelly Roll Morton classic that is fun to play and has some powerful contrapuntal lines that will add to any guitar player’s bag of tricks.

Rainer Brunn’s clear and focused lesson will add some real “jewels” to your repertoire while expanding your country blues vocabulary and technique.

Great selection of songs well taught! Thanks Rainer!

The menu on the Mac download isn't working properly for me. It goes to the intro regardless of selection. Hope this is remedied soon.
