Dave Van Ronk's DVD lesson spans a wide variety of exciting and powerful music. The blues of Leroy Carr and Scrapper Blackwell, the 'old fashioned' picking of Rev. Gary Davis, the ragtime bounce of Blind Blake, the sophisticated blues of Brownie McGhee, the country blues of Jim Jackson, a children's ring song and a Van Ronk original all receive the unique Dave Van Ronk treatment.
Each arrangement is discussed and explained in detail. This is a complete lesson for the intermediate guitarist that clearly illustrates how traditional music can be placed in a fingerstyle setting.
Titles include: Green Green Rocky Road, Kansas City Blues, Sportin' Life Blues, Sunday Street, Spike Driver's Moan, That Will Never Happen No More, Midnight Hour Blues, Cocaine Bluesand Down South Blues.
