Watch the Urban Blues Revolution online guitar lesson by Robben Ford from Urban Blues Revolution
Hi, I'm Robben Ford, and welcome to Urban Blues Revolution. Everybody knows that the blues comes out of the south, and was played on acoustic instruments. Then the blues moved to the cities, and the urbanization of the blues brought about a lot of changes with all the influences that were there. The most radical was the electrification of the blues - the use of amplifiers and electric guitars gave rise to a variety of tones and signature voices.
In this course, we're going to work with six tracks that are inspired by the modernization of the blues. For each of these rhythm tracks, I'll show you the way that it was traditionally played, and then show ways that I'd play it today. Also, I'll show you how I'd solo over these tracks.
Everything is tabbed and notated, and you'll get the rhythm tracks to play along with on your own. You can loop or slow down any section of the videos so that you can learn at your own pace. So, grab your guitar and let's go!
