DVD-The Guitar of Blind Blake

taught by Woody Mann
sku: 304-DVD801
Blind Blake was the premier ragtime blues guitarist of the 1920s. He expanded the alternating bass style to encompass the contemporary dance trends and more complex blues ideas introduced by the jazz bands of New Orleans and Chicago. His technique featured unique right-hand thumb rolls that evoked the feel of the Charleston dance step. Here Mann explores the ideas, techniques, and styles of a legendary musician who has influenced generations of country blues guitarists. A generous notation and tab booklet is included as a PDF file. Intermediate. 94 min.   More Details...
