Learn the folk and blues techniques behind the unique style of Keb' Mo'.
In Exploring The Guitar DVD, Grammy-winner Keb' Mo' accompanies his songs with folk/blues fingerpicking, swampy slide licks, contemporary pop chords, and a touch of jazz. Learning guitarists will be inspired to develop their own unique style as he teaches chord shapes, open tunings, slide technique, and picking patterns.
Level 3: Early Intermediate—You have been playing a while and can play some songs and/or instrumentals without too much difficulty. Now you want to move into specific styles, develop your repertoire and increase your technique. The instructor still covers the material in detail, but there are more challenges.
With his easy-going humor and deep musical knowledge, Keb' Mo' makes it a joy to play along with this lesson. You'll learn unusual chord shapes, a variety of tunings, bottleneck/slide technique, picking patterns and seven beautiful songs from his award-winning repertoire: Your Love, Life is Beautiful, I'll Be Your Water, Every Morning, Eileen, Tell Everybody I Know and a bluesy slide arrangement of America the Beautiful.
Keb's songs are accessible to most learning players. The interesting part comes when he adds his "surprise" harmonies, - unexpected chords and ear-catching progressions. His stated intention is "to inspire you by showing you things about the guitar that will help you make choices in your music based on what you feel in your heart."
