Blues Guitar starts off by teaching you some Mississippi Blues
– the birthplace of Son House, Albert King and Howling
Wolf. You’ll learn about the importance of touch and
tone in this style, and the full tone bend, half tone bend,
and full tone bend and release techniques.
Rockin’ Blues shows the way that the Blues was later
interpreted by great rock guitarists of the 60’s and
70’s such as Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix and Ritchie Blackmore.
You’ll learn the use of Blues strumming, unison bends,
hammer-ons, pull-offs, positions shifts and slides.

The St Louis Blues styles was pioneered by T-Bone Walker
and popularised by Chuck Berry before influencing The Beatles
and Rolling Stones amongst others. With this style you’ll
learn palm muting, fast bends and slides, and combinations
of the minor pentatonic scale and mixolydian mode.
British Blues influenced guitarists such as Peter Green,
Eric Clapton, Mick Taylor and Keith Richards and this track
shows you fret hand muting and the use of the Blues scale
together with the dorian mode.

Finally, Texas Blues teaches chord “chips”, trills,
double stops and curls as used by Stevie and Jimmy Vaughan,
Roy Buchanan and Johnny Winter.
