Overview

In this series of lessons Stefan Grossman explores various fingerstyle blues guitar styles and techniques. This first lesson focuses on the Key of C. Grossman delves into the alternating as well as monotonic bass techniques; blues slides, hammer-ons and pull-offs, and blues slurred notes. The playing techniques of Mississippi John Hurt, Rev. Gary Davis and Blind Blake are discussed. But more importantly, the aim of this lesson is to give you a freedom to improvise playing a blues. The lesson finishes with Blues in C, which brings together the many ideas and styles that have been taught.

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: "Railroad Bill," "Careless Love," "I'm Satisfied," "You Got The Pocketbook I Got The Key," "Cocaine Blues," "See See Rider," "Save Up Your Money John D. Rockefeller Put the Panic On," "and Blues in C."
