Ernie Hawkins – Blues Guitar of Rev. Gary Davis
Oct 17 2012
In this double DVD lesson, Ernie Hawkins teaches in detail nine of Rev. Gary Davis’s best known blues arrangements. Rev. Davis approached playing the blues in several different styles. Each had unique characteristics and ranged from what he called old fashion picking to complex playing that explored and extended the blues tradition on the fingerboard.
Each arrangement is broken down phrase by phrase and then played slowly on a split screen. You can easily follow the playing with the tab/music booklet.
Ernie not only learned from this Master directly but teaches the Rev. in a manner that anyone can follow. You can not go wrong with Ernie Hawkins DVD lessons they are all excellent. This DVD is worth buying even for those who are not interested in actually learning the songs, just for Ernie’s performances.
