Soulful songs and powerful techniques from a master bluesman.

Blues fans and players worldwide have embraced the haunting, soulful sounds of the Mississippi Delta. Hans Theessink, a masterful player, singer and performer, teaches the powerful Guitar styles that he learned first-hand from traditional players in the American south.

Hans' passion for the blues is clear as he details the tunings, chord shapes, bass runs, fingerpicking style, slide technique and percussive strokes that form the core of every good blues player's repertoire. He plays, sings and analyzes seven favourite classics and originals: Prison Blues, Big Bill's Guitar, Vicksburg Is My Home, Sugar Babe, You Make Me Feel So Good, Sitting On Top Of The World, and Two Trains.

Hans closes this DVD lesson with a full performance of Down In Mississippi Where The Blues Was Born, a stirring homage to his favourite blues masters.

As you add these powerful songs to your repertoire, your understanding of this important tradition will deepen and you'll be inspired to create your own compelling blues arrangements.
