    STREAMING OR DOWNLOAD ONLY. Rory Block's compelling original songs, as much as her renowned blues guitar technique, have gained her an enthusiastic international following. In this special one-on-one session, recently released from the Homespun archives, she teaches some of her distinctive and challenging guitar arrangements. Silver Wings (using what Rory calles her "secret tuning"), reveals how she utilizes hammer-ons, rolls, slides, a "Joni Mitchell chord," intros and outros and percussive right-hand strumming to build the arrangement. Mama's Blues, in open G, illustrates her use of the capo, various chord fingerings and barre technique, as well as the picking pattern that runs throughout the song. Got To Shine, in dropped D, highlights Rory's brilliant use of guitar-body percussion. Finally, you'll learn the heart-wrenching Lovin' Whiskey, with Rory adding insights and advice about her songwriting process before closing with an inspiring performance of It Ain't Right. 70 min.
