Overview

Jump-start your lap slide guitar adventures! Veteran blues performer Mary Flower's exciting lesson gives novices all the necessary playing tools, and experienced guitarists will be delighted by the more challenging techniques and powerful songs she teaches. Playing in open D (DADF#AD) provides rich, ringing sounds and open access to the full slide guitar experience.

A clear and thoughtful instructor, Mary first covers all the important skills: handling the bar, finding the notes, using hammer-ons and pull-offs, vibrato, harmonics, hand muting, monotonic and alternate-bass fingerpicking and more. She then gets into the nitty-gritty details of some deep and compelling traditional blues songs:

The well-known one-chord standard Baby Please Don't Go; Tampa Red's Boogie-Woogie Dance; the ageless hymn, Swing Low, Sweet Chariot; the infectious r&b groove of Green Onions; Son House's haunting Death Letter Blues.

In each example, Mary illustrates the power of the slide blues sound and brings turnarounds, rhythms, chord progressions, fingerpicking patterns, bass lines and improvisations to the learning player.
