About This CourseBeginner
From Texas To The Delta is a mega-pack of acoustic blues guitar lessons covering all aspects of finger picking acoustic blues guitar, hence the name. From the Mississippi Delta sounds of Robert Johnson to the happy complex ragtime guitar picking style of Blind Blake, all styles are covered in great detail.
In addition to the legendary blues men, such as Lightnin Hopkins, Big Bill Broonzy and Robert Johnson, this course explores some of the amazing guitar techniques of guys who are not exactly household names, but nevertheless had an enormous impact on blues guitar development and modern music in general. Blues guitar men such as Scrapper Blackwell, Pink Anderson and Floyd Council are unknown names, unless you are a blues fan! Most people know that Pink Floyd took their group name from the latter two blues men, but very few people have heard their music.
In presenting these 39 video lessons from the major acoustic blues artists of the 20s and 30s, the aim is to provide a good grounding in all acoustic blues guitar finger picking techniques. Depending on the key used, and also the musical style, the lessons are suitable for intermediate to advanced players. For example, the alternating bass patterns used in ragtime guitar are harder to learn than the monotonic bass techniques associated with the Delta.
