The easy way to get the blues.
DVD 1 - Starting from Scratch
Homespun Tapes founder, guitarist Happy Traum offers this unique course in acoustic blues guitar, especially designed for novice players. He breaks it all down into Easy Steps, including syncopated strumming patterns, 12-bar and 8-bar blues progressions, bass runs, and more than a dozen variations for the all-important blues turnarounds, intros and endings.
DVD 2 - Essentials of Fingerstyle Blues
Happy Traum's Easy Steps learning concept breaks down the all-important steady thumb blues style into modules that can be digested one element at a time. This nearly foolproof method for building solid guitar technique includes shuffle and boogie-woogie bass lines, blues scales, playing solos up the neck, variations on blues chord progressions, and arrangements of "Rock Me," "Baby, Baby Please Don't Go," "Trouble in Mind" and other blues classics.
