David Hamburger's New School Fingerstyle Blues

Pull up a desk at the New School of Fingerstyle Blues and let David Hamburger show you the right hand grooves and left hand moves that will take your solo fingerstyle chops to the next level and expand your repertoire at the same time. You'll discover the new world of fingerstyle blues and how to update traditional twelve-bar country blues and ragtime picking and keep everything funky, bluesy and soulful.

About the Guitar Lesson Plan

Interactive Video Guitar Instruction

box artNew School Fingerstyle Blues introduces you to fresh new grooves, licks and chord voicings, many inspired by the playing of Professor Longhair, James Booker and other blues piano masters.

ou'll learn how to hold down syncopated, two-beat and walking bass lines; add jazz and blues voicings up the neck; incorporate double stops and chromatic blues licks; use rakes, hammer-ons, pull-offs and slides; slip in blues and jazz turnarounds; apply 9th and 13th chords to blues and rag forms; and play blues ballads with an after-hours feel. Here's how New School Fingerstyle Blues is presented:

Students are first presented with a video performance of an original new school fingerstyle arrangement with both the right and left hands clearly visible.

Hamburger then breaks down the arrangement, note-by-note, move-by-move, providing tips for pulling off the material and new school techniques.

With the Power Tab, students can "see" and "hear" the notation played out. Tempo can be adjusted without changing pitch and any section can be looped.

TrueFire's instructional player puts video, text descriptions, supplemental tips, standard notation and a dozen controls at your fingertips.
