DVD - Country Blues Guitar in Open Tunings

taught by Stefan Grossman
sku: 304-DVD969
In this approach the guitar is tuned to a full chord. The most popular Country Blues tunings were the Open G tuning, also called Spanish tuning and the Open D tuning, also called Vestapol tuning. Also used by a few Delta guitarists such as Skip James and Bukka White was the Crossnote tuning where your guitar is tuned to an Open Em chord. This lesson explores all three with seven blues arrangements. Also covers Delta Blues ideas in Open G tuning and applying bottleneck techniques in an open tuning setting. Each tune is taught phrase by phrase and then played slowly on a split-screen. Intermediate. 101 min.   More Details...
