The second in Happy Traum's tutorial series for the novice guitarist introduces you to the world of fingerstyle blues guitar. Building upon the basics established in the first DVD (Catalogue No. HL00641834), Traum's lessons will give you the skills to create bass pulses with your thumb whilst picking out the tunes and syncopations on the upper strings. The result is a rich, self-accompanying sound full of groove and swing!
Traum's Easy Steps method reduces these key techniques into smaller modules that can be digested quickly and easily. Through carefully constructed exercises these techniques become gradually more complex and advanced, allowing your playing to grow at your own pace.
You will learn how to break up your chords, as well as the funky 'Lightnin' Hopkins Lick'. There are shuffle and boogie-woogie basslines, solo riffs, scales and chord progressions, all just waiting to be absorbed into your playing to develop your own unique country-blues sound.
