A word from Jim:
"My playing career goes way back, to the folk clubs on the UK in the sixties, clubs pubs and bars in six countries, and on the city streets of Europe. This is how I learned my trade.
One day someone asked me to slow down a lick to show them exactly what I was doing with my hands. As I tried to do this, I found that I was doing much, much more than I realised.
It was these tiny hand movements that make acoustic blues so exciting when it's performed properly.
This is the main focus of my lessons - to show students exactly how to play blues guitar in great detail."

Course Description: Blues Chords - Acoustic Blues Guitar Lessons
This courses provides tuition in several diverse blues guitar finger picking styles, and also gives the opportunity to learn complete songs - advice is also given about singing at the same time.
Artists covered – Seasick Steve, Blind Boy Fuller, Blind Willie McTell, Robert Johnson,
The acoustic blues guitar masters had an enormous influence on generations of modern guitarists - the acoustic swing blues of Broonzy, for example, became the electric style of Muddy Waters, then Buddy Guy and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
The starting point for any guitar picker wanting to play any kind of blues is to study the techniques of the original blues guitar players, to see how they put their music together and to appreciate how their fingers produced so much rhythm and syncopation onj a relatively simple instrument like the acoustic guitar.
This basic course covers several basic guitar finger picking styles, and my approach is to show you just one thing - anyone can play the blues guitar with the right tuition, time and practice - it's all up to you.
Each guitar lesson includes in-video guitar tablature, discussion about technique and slow motion demonstrations of both hands. This course is a great primer for my other blues guitar lessons, which cover all of the major guitar picking styles from most famous blues men of old.
