Learn a wide variety of fingerpicking blues styles and techniques in the keys of A and E.

This third lesson features a wide variety of fingerpicking blues styles and techniques played in the Keys of A and E. From slow blues in the style of Lightnin' Hopkins to playing a blues in A in a dropped D tuning (D A D G B E). Delta blues guitar techniques are taught with songs and ideas by Son House, Willie Brown, Charlie Patton, Tommy Johnson and Skip James.

As in each previous lesson, the final aim is to give you a freedom to improvise playing a blues in these keys. As a bonus feature audio tracks are included featuring rare recordings of the songs and styles presented.

Each tune is taught phrase-by-phrase and played slowly on a split-screen. A detailed tab/music booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD. This includes lyrics to the songs as well as tab/music transcriptions of the guitar playing.

Tunes include: "County Line," "Slow Blues in A," "Come Back Baby," "Yonder Comes The Blues," "Weeping Willow," "M&O Blues," "Bye Bye Blues," "New Pony Blues," "If You Haven't Any Hay Get On Down The Road," "and Slow Blues in E." 85 minutes.
