In Beginner's Blues Guitar, Fred Sokolow starts from ground zero, and teaches you how to accompany yourself while singing the blues. You'll learn to play melodies and solo in several keys, throughout the neck. This book will help build the foundation for your understanding of blues guitar techniques and styles for both acoustic and electric guitar. Addresses the simple blues form in E, G, and C, gradually expanding on concepts. Includes simple first position blues scales needed for soloing (both fingerpicking and flatpicking) in the keys of E, G, and C. Songs and solos are presented in both standard notation and tablature with lyrics.
As part of Stefan Grossman's Guitar Workshop Audio Series, not only does this 32-page book contain valuable lessons, but as an added bonus, the three accompanying CDs also contain three full hours of instruction featuring note-by-note, phrase-by-phrase instruction.
