In this double DVD set, I teach a wide array of folk blues arrangements. You will study playing in various tunings, i.e. Standard, Dropped D, DADGAD, Open D and Open C tunings.

All are taught phrase by phrase and the movements of both the left and right hands are clearly illustrated on the split screens.
