Advanced Fingerpicking Guitar Techniques- Blues Guitar

Contemporary acoustic fingerstyle blues encompasses a wide variety of styles, techniques and sounds. In this lesson, four multi-sectioned blues instrumentals based on traditional techniques, blues piano ideas, single string melodic guitar licks and horn styled solos are presented. The music varies from a piano-styled boogie to a slow country blues reminiscent of the playing of Blind Blake and Jelly Roll Morton, to a New Orleans blues in the style and feel of Ray Charles and Snooks Eaglin.
