Instructor: Steve James Publisher: Homespun Tapes
Steve James is internationally known for his mastery of blues guitar styles as well as for his deep knowledge of the history of the great traditional players, from the Piedmont to the Delta. Here, he teaches Buddy Bolden's Blues, a classic jazz/blues in C that makes use of alternate bass fingerpicking, the "thumb roll," and some funky New Orleans-style chords. Along the way, Steve passes along musical insights that will be useful in figuring out many other blues-based songs.
