I've been availing myself of Jim's lessons for several years now and I would say that they are the best blues instructional materials out there. I don't feel that I would have come nearly as far in my playing as I would have without them. His instruction is always interesting, and he breaks down difficult passages in ways that make them easy to learn. I greatly appreciate the work and skill that Jim has put into this.
Guitar lesson videos showing how to play complete songs by acoustic blues guitar players from Texas and South Carolina - Lightnin' Hopkins, Mance Lipscombe, Blind Boy Fuller, Floyd Council.
Floyd Council appears in this compilation because his guitar style is identical to Fuller's and he played second guitar on several of Fuller's recordings.
Each video lesson presents descriptions and demonstrations of technique, chord structure and slow motion demonstration with on-screen guitar tablature. The guitar tabs are also provided as pdf downloads for ease of practice.
The videos are between 15 and 25 minutes long and contain all you need to know to play the songs. This course is ideal for guitar players wanting to explore the world of acoustic blues guitar and also improve their finger picking skills.
