Watch the Fingerstyle Blues Factory online guitar lesson by David Hamburger from Fingerstyle Blues Factory
Welcome to Fingerstyle Blues Factory! I've been fascinated with fingerpicking ever since I first started playing, and have loved the blues since I first heard it, so as far as I'm concerned, fingerstyle blues is the best of both worlds and an endlessly fascinating and flexible approach to explore. In this course, we're going to look at ways to play over both a steady-bass and alternating thumb bass, and focus on building our vocabulary in two of the most common keys for fingerstyle blues, E and A. Along the way we'll pick up moves in the styles of key players like Robert Johnson and Lightnin' Hopkins, learn essential chord voicings and turnarounds, and even talk about syncopation, quarter-tone bends and other high-end concepts. By the time we're done, you'll have dozens of new licks under your fingers and eight whole choruses of fingerstyle blues to play.
