Beyond The Basics - Mississippi Blues
If you've learned how to fingerpick alternating bass and independent melodies, and want to not only learn new songs but also learn fun variations to add to them, while increasing your technique at the same time, then this course is for you.
My whole approach is to go beyond just teaching you the songs. With each song I'll show you how to be creative by providing you with exciting new licks that will give you ideas for endless variations. As a result you'll be a MUCH better player, and probably won't play the song the same way twice!
In the "The Mississippi Blues," you'll learn how to add variations to a song while maintaining the original artist's flavor, interesting bass line movements, creative uses of triplets, single note soloing while playing a bass note below, improvising in Open D tuning, the Bentonia style in Open G tuning, and a treasure chest of licks!
Here are the songs that you'll learn:
• Bye Bye Blues - Tommy Johnson
• M&O Blues - Willie Brown
• Poor Boy - Robert Wilkens
• Special Rider Blues - Skip James
• You Got To Walk That Lonesome Valley - Mississippi John Hurt
