DVD - Guitar of Fred McDowell

taught by Tom Feldmann
sku: 304-DVD839SET
2-DVD set. McDowell has been imitated by just about everyone that has picked up a slide. We are fortunate to have footage of him performing, with clear shots of his left and right hands. Disk one has Fred performing many of his classic tunes in Open E tuning. After each, Tom slowly breaks down Fred's techniques on a split screen. Disk two is devoted to McDowell's recordings in Open A tuning, which Tom performs, as there is no footage of McDowell performing in Open A. "When I Lay My Burden Down, "John Henry," "Mojo Hand," "The Train I Ride," "Kokomo Blues," more. With original recordings of all the tunes, interview with Tom, as well as more of his performances. Tab/music booklets included as PDF files. Advanced.   More Details...
