Mark Dziuba helps you become a great blues guitarist by expanding your groove palette. You'll learn about shuffle and straight rhythms, the 12/8 feel, triplets, blues forms, the minor blues, and various blues rhythm tricks, including chord fills, using accents and mutes, sliding into chords, and open-string drones. Additionally, Dziuba explores harmonic concepts, like chord extensions and advanced voicings, plus rhythms from music beyond the blues---the Charleston and Latin montuno. The included DVD is hosted by Dziuba and features live demonstrations of the examples in the book.
