The Banjo Bands of Malawi

 
Banjos have been used in southern Africa for a long time as musical tools that can be made locally, for solo performance or playing in a group. Factory-manufactured American banjos were introduced in the 1920s and 30s. At the end of World War II they had become prominent dance music instruments throughout the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland (1953-1963). But from the mid 1960s such instrum..MORE

Music of Woody Guthrie arranged for Fingerstyle Guitar

 
Woody Guthrie’s songs gave direction and purpose to a generation of songwriters in the 1950s and 1960s, and they continue to move millions of people today. “This Land Is Your Land” has become an alternate national anthem! In this 101 minute lesson, Fred Sokolow teaches you how to play backup and solos to ten of Woody’s best, including “Pastures of Plenty,” &..MORE

Fingerpicking Blues Guitar in the Key of A

 
Fingerpicking blues guitar is a never ending study full of surprises and discoveries. Each key of the guitar offers new sounds and textures. A blues played in the key of C sounds world's apart from a blues played in the keys of A, G, D or E. In this series I decided to focus on a single key for each lesson. The key of A can be very down home and tough. It can be rough and tumble. It can be..MORE

Fingerpicking Blues Guitar in the Key of G

 
The key of G offers specific advantages. It is ideal for the alternating bass technique i.e. Mississippi John Hurt's style of playing. We start by learning an arrangement of Marshall Owens' 1930s recording of Try Me One More Time. This was originally played in an Open G tuning but I have arranged it in standard tuning using a John Hurt approach. Not all blues from the 1920s and 1930s were fing..MORE

Guitar of Robert Johnson (3 DVD Set)

 
Robert Johnson is arguably the most well known figure in the history of the blues. Though the 29 songs Johnson recorded from 1936-1937 had little impact during his lifetime, a collection of his singles, entitled King of the Delta Blues Singers was released in 1961 and found widespread recognition. Then, 30 years later, The Complete Recordings of Robert Johnson was released selling over one mil..MORE
