Step between the covers of the Fingerstyle Blues Handbook and let David Hamburger introduce you to the solo instrumental world of fingerstyle blues guitar. Ideal for lifelong flatpickers, this progressive series of lessons will soon have you thumping and grooving on twenty deep blue instrumentals, enough to keep you picking on the porch for hours on end.
Fingerstyle Blues Handbook introduces you to "steady bass," the key technique in many contemporary and classic blues styles. You will learn how to quickly achieve finger and thumb independence so you can play chords and solos with your fingers while your thumb maintains the groove. You'll learn single note and double stop blues licks, blues chord voicings, descending bass lines and vamps, and how to play eight, twelve and sixteen bar blues in the keys of E, A, D, A minor and E minor. Each of the twenty lessons features a fingerstyle blues tune that you learn and add to your repertoire.
This course provides a solid foundation for playing solo fingerstyle blues guitar and taking on David's more advanced New School Fingerstyle Blues course also from TrueFire.
