Bob Brozman: Learn To Play Bottleneck Blues Guitar Vol. 3 – Repertoire
May 28 2015
Brozman digs deeper into the bottleneck blues repertoire with this exploration of major and minor keys in open and standard tunings. He covers traditional styles of Bukka White, Tampa Red, Charlie Patton and other Delta masters. Songs: “Old Dog Blues,” “Jitterbug Swing,” “Denver Blues,” “Cypress Grove,” “Telegram Blues,” “Pony Blues,” more.
If you’re new to bottleneck playing, I’d recommend starting with disc one in the series. It will give you the bedrock basic techniques that are used extensively in these more advanced lessons. These discs provide additional techniques and licks that can be mixed and matched to play or add spice to hundreds of blues tunes.
There’s a nice modified version of RJ’s Come on into my Kitchen he plays through then analyses bit by bit to show you the sleight of hand employed. Brozman also shows you some Son House and Charlie Patton moves and what Cypress Grove might sound like if Skip James had been a slide player. There are valuable tips for adding attention grabbing mojo to a song through the use of rhythmic alterations. Clear instruction. Well produced. If you’re looking to become an acoustic bottle neck bluesman, these will be of benefit to you.
