An hour's worth of instruction for acoustic fingerstyle players who want to use their new skills to play blues and ragtime.
The acoustic guitar is able to produce a sound that is very different than its electric brother. Its use of natural vibrations, rather than electronic assistance, generates more soothing, calmer tones. Blues & Ragtime, the 2nd release in the Acoustic Fingerstyle Series - host Max Milligan shows how to get the most out of the acoustic guitar, teaching ways and techniques used by blues guitarists such as Big Bill Broonzy, Mississippi John Hurt and Keb Mo, to develop into a fingerstyle of your own. The various accompaniment ideas are demonstrated for the 12 bar blues through to alternative picking styles, finishing with a cool country blues instrumental.
Your instructor Max Milligan is a Guitar Institute Instructor and Senior Examiner for Registry of Guitar Tutors (London College of Music).
