Description de l’éditeur
The book takes an overview of the various techniques that are used as part of the Blues Guitar, both acoustic and electric, and that any aspiring Bluesman should know and master.
It begins with fingerpicking used in Country Blues, with techniques typical of the alternating bass of the Piedmont Style, and moves to the monotonic bass of Texas Blues, and damping of the strings obtained with the right hand.
It explains how to deal with the melodic lines using the tonal ambiguity provided by the Blues Scale. It covers rhythm and Blues phrasing ruling with syncopation concepts and Swing Feel. The techniques of the left hand are analyzed such as hammer-ons, pull-offs, embellishments (acciaccature, mordent, trill, tremolo, and slide). Finally, it covers Bending, Vibrato, and Double-Stops.
It closes with a section that introduces Alternate Tunings and the use of the Bottleneck.
