Nothing sounds as bluesy as a slide guitar, and this 70 minute DVD shows you how it s done on electric and acoustic, solo or with a group. Using classic blues tunes Little Red Rooster, Sittin On Top Of The World, Reconsider Baby, The Sky Is Crying, Farther On Up The Road and One Way Out Fred Sokolow shows you how to play and improvise slide in the styles of the great bluesmen Muddy Waters, Elmore James, Mississippi Fred McDowell and Duane Allman.
Rockabilly is the roots of rock. It combines electric blues, country blues, Merle Travis-style fingerpicking and more. This DVD covers boogie woogie back-up licks, turnarounds, blues/rock licks in the classic key of E, movable blues/rock scales, fingerpicking patterns and more. A detailed tab/music instructional booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD.
This DVD is the follow-up lesson to Fred Sokolow's Beginner's Fingerpicking Guitar. It presents six classic fingerpicking tunes, including solos and accompaniments, with a bluesy and country flavour.
Learning Blues haphazardly can be very frustrating—a lick here, a lick there—so having a complete system that takes you by the hand from the basic progressions and tools to advanced blues soloing can save you months of dead-end trial and error. With this course, you'll learn the notes, chords, and form that make up the blues. You'll also build a strong repertoire of ready-to-use riffs (shown in both music and TAB) that can immediately be incorporated into your playing. You'll hear exactly what to play with each session's "Hearing the Blues" ear training exercises. Explore and demonstrate your new skills with a real band in a variety of musical settings using the Jam-Along CD and DVD.
