Stefan Grossman – Fingerpicking Blues Guitar Solos
Feb 20 2016
This DVD lesson is for the intermediate and advanced fingerstyle guitar player. It is for the student who feels comfortable with an alternating bass techique and wants to expand and explore ideas in blues and ragtime using more advanced right and left hand techniques. The four instrumentals featured in this lesson are all extended compositions offering a variety of musical ideas.
Piano sounding blues in the key of A are presented with Mississippi Blues and Blues For The Mann. A Blind Blake approach in the key of C is used for the Glory of Love. Struttin’ Rag in the key of E brings together three distinct sections. It opens with a blues piano sounding motif and then steps into a more country atmosphere. It finishes with a series of bass licks reminiscent of Merle Travis’s Walkin’ The Strings. There are many challenges to master in these four instrumentals. Each is taught phrase by phrase and then played slowly on a split-screen. A detailed tab/music booklet is included.
