Learn the traditional country blues guitar styles that have influenced generations of players. Rory Block, one of the most knowledgeable and talented exponents of the classic blues style, teaches the earthy, hard-driving playing of the Mississippi Delta in a way that brings it all into focus.

The rhythmic pounding style of Charlie Patton, the fingerpicking blues of Tommy Johnson, and the sliding, open-tuned sounds of the great Robert Johnson are made clear through a master player's in-depth teaching and the magic of download.

Rory shows you, in detail, great fingerstyle blues pieces such as Moon's Going Down, Patton's Blues ( based on Charlie Patton's Pea Vine Blues and Robert Johnson's Milk Cow Blues), Robert Johnson's Crossroads Blues and Mattie Delaney's Travelin' Blues. As you learn these songs, you'll be developing technical skills in the use of regular and open tunings, treble melodies, bass runs, sliding octaves, string bending and a variety of amazing pounding and strumming blues techniques.
