The full range of lessons available cover all major acoustic blues guitar styles, such as delta blues(Robert Johnson), Texas Blues (Lightnin' Hopkins), Chicago swing (Big Bill Broonzy), ragtime blues(Blind Blake, Blind Boy Fuller, Willie Walker) , Carolina blues (Floyd Council, Pink Anderson, Scrapper Blackwell), bottleneck and open tunings. Learning how to play acoustic blues guitar is a two part battle. First, we need to train our motor skills to competently make the right sounds. When we have learned where our fingers should go, its basically a case of playing over and over again for many hours a week. It is said that an expert guitarist has approximately ten thousand hours of practice time to his credit. Tommy Emmanuel once guessed that he had practiced about 100 000 hours in his life, which comes in at around 5 hours each day, every day! Guitarists will tell you that progress comes in levels - you seem to be stuck at one level for a lengthy period, and then it seems as though you jump up a notch. Of course, the progress is because of regular practice. Statesboro Blues Guitar Tabs We have all watched excellent guitarists play and been completely bored after 5 mins, just because there is no feeling - it just doesn't say anything. From time to time, technical skill and feeling will come together in a certain guitarist, and then we see some magic. Naturally, all things relative, and playing the guitar is no exception. Although Clapton is thought to be a legend, his acoustic finger picking technique appears quite basic when compared to Tommy Emmanuel, who can literally play any style of music. How To Play Statesboro blues - make it real. It happens now and again we feel totally blocked and need something to push us through the 'wall'. Often, the blockage is strictly psychological. An old musician partner of mine left the district for over a year, and we spoke on the telephone now and again. One time he told me he had learned how to play 'Police Dog Blues' by Arthur Blake, which is a very difficult song to perform correctly. Up until that point, I couldn't play it. My old friend was always a lesser guitarist, and I was very competitive, and so within one week I learned how to play it. When he came back, I let him know that I could play Blake's 'Police Dog Blues' as well. He laughed and exclaimed, "I can't play it at all - too difficult. I was just having fun with you." There's a lesson there. Let Jim take you to the next level - all the acoustic blues lessons you need in one place! (Suitable for intermediate to advanced finger pickers.)
