The Blues Guitar of Keb’ Mo’
Jul 16 2016
Keb’ Mo’s lesson is aimed at players who want to get comfortable with the basics of traditional country blues and then go on to more contemporary blues-based tunes. Working in the key of E, Keb’ shows how turnarounds and harmonized scale passages can be the basis for developing fluid phrases in a Robert Johnson style blues tune. He teaches his original tunes Perpetual Blues Machine and Angelina, both in A and employing a rhythmic alternating bass style. Keb’ Mo includes some jazz-oriented chords (F7b5, G13 and E11) that add spice and interest to the songs.
For Henry, Keb’ switches to his National steel guitar and discusses the basics of slide technique. This compelling, evocative piece combines many of the elements that make Keb’ Mo’s music so distinctive – a solid basis in tradition along with a contemporary sensibility that brings it right up to date.
This DVD, with its enhanced picture and sound quality, and instant access to anything you want to work on, will help you learn many of the elements that make up solid traditional or contemporary blues guitar playing.
