DVD-The Guitar of Blind Willie Johnson

by Tom Feldmann
sku: 304-DVD831
Blind Willie Johnson recorded thirty songs from 1927-1930: he used a slide on only twelve - which stand as some of the best slide guitar ever recorded. Tom breaks down the complexities of eight of these. See how Johnson created his "as you feel" bass lines by using alternating, monotonic and "brushing" bass techniques. Tom teaches in detail Johnson's strike and slides, pull-offs and vibrato. Tab/music booklet included as a PDF file. The original recordings of all the tunes are included. "Bye And Bye I'm Goin' To See The King," "You're Gonna Need Somebody On Your Bond," "Dark Was The Night Cold Was The Ground," more. Intermediate. 128 min.   More Details...
