Acoustic Blues Guitar Course

with Eddie Martin

27 August -2 September 2017

The course offers a structured and comprehensive entrance into the world of fingerstyle and bottleneck acoustic blues guitar. The goal of the course is for students to develop a foundational, working repertoire in acoustic blues styles moving through key players such as Son House, Charlie Patton, Robert Johnson, Mississippi John Hurt. You will learn the basics of slide techniques and tunings and how to fingerpick melodies and solos over independent bass patterns, working through tab, video material and key songs.
