St. Louis Blues Guitar taught by John Miller
PDF Booklet (34 pages) + MP3 256 Kbps | Genre: Guitar lessons
Included on this DVD are transcriptions and teaching of the songs of Teddy Darby, where the guitar and voice track each other closely, Clifford Gibson, with his distinctive approach to playing in Spanish tuning and the mysterious low cross-note sound, Charley Jordan, with his acrobatic thumbwork and occasionally raggy sound, and the enigmatic Lane Hardin, who only recorded two titles under his own name. The songs selected for inclusion in the lesson have been chosen to introduce you to a variety of different tunings and playing positions, and employ different right hand approaches that will expand your ability to utilize techniques like thumb lead and brush strokes.
A PDF file is included on the DVD which can be printed out into an easily readable, 8.5” by 11” booklet, including not only detailed transcriptions of the songs, but the songs’ lyrics, as well. As well, all of the original recordings from which the transcriptions were made are included on the DVD.
