It's fair to say that we wouldn't have songs like Kindhearted Woman Blues, Traveling Riverside Blues, Preaching Blues or Hellhound On My Trail without Blue Day Blues (Scrapper Blackwell), Roll and Tumble Blues (Hambone Willie Newburn), Preaching the Blues (Son House) or Devil Got my Woman (Skip James). And in The Roots Of Robert Johnson, Tom Feldmann takes you verse-by-verse through those songs, and many others, that played such an integral role in Robert Johnson's own recordings.
Covering a wide range of styles, techniques, keys, and tunings, this lesson will expand your range as a player and take you on the musical journal that created one of history's most lauded blues guitarists.
A detailed tab/music booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD. In addition, the original recordings of all the tunes are included.
Titles include: Lead Pencil Blues (Johnnie Temple), Blue Day Blues (Scrapper Blackwell), Life Saver Blues (Lonnie Johnson), Police Station Blues (Peetie Wheestraw), My Black Mama (Son House), Roll and Tumble Blues (Hambone Willie Newburn), Preaching the Blues (Son House) and Devil Got my Woman (Skip James).
