Description
Blind Blake's recordings, made in the 1920s and 1930s, set a standard for ragtime blues Guitar virtuosity that remains unmatched. His famous 'double-thumb' right-hand technique is part of a syncopated sound that is unlike that ofany other guitarist. His recordings, with their rhythmic drive and ingenious variations, remain a source of endless delight (as well as frustration) for today's acoustic blues guitarists.

In this double DVD Ari Eisingerexplains and demonstrates two key components of Blind Blake's style: his right-hand technique and his unique chord progressions. He then provides detailed demonstrations of eight of Blake's Guitar breaks and accompanimentsfromsome of his best recordings. These include the well-known songs and instrumentals Rope Stretchin' Blues and the amazing (and amazingly fast) Southern Rag, as well as the wonderful, but often overlooked,Baby Lou Blues and Tootie Blues. The lesson provides both an introduction to Blake's style and a detailed demonstration of some of his most advanced instrumental breaks.

A detailed tab/music booklet isincluded as a PDF file on each DVD. In addition the original old recordings of all the tunes are included.
