Blind Blake Under The Hood
BLIND BLAKE - UNDER THE HOOD
AN IN-DEPTH LOOK AT THE STYLE OF BLIND BLAKE!
You don’t have to be an incredible finger picker in order to benefit from these lessons.
While Blind Blake was probably one of the most talented of all the guitarists of his time, I break down his playing into slow, step-by-step, bite-size chunks. Using computer technology, I was able to capture each nuance and lick that Blake played, and will not only show you how it’s done, but I’ll also teach you how to incorporate these techniques into your own playing!
That’s why I call this ‘Under The Hood.’
I can assure you that you won’t miss a thing!

Your teaching and lesson structure keeps getting better and better. I really like the 'Under The Hood' concept - what makes Blake sound like Blake'. As I started watching the intro and verse to 'Cold Love Blues', your slow playing speed and prominent bass line really gets my attention.
In short, it was your articulate playing that did it. I hear the bass line clearly, I hear the melody and tinsel clearly. The intro videos to this lesson were spot on.I also liked having the original tune for reference, as the concept speaks very loudly. It's great to hear that this music was not intended to be perfect, it was intended to dance.
