While slowly illustrating classic country blues guitar duets in the styles of Big Bill Broonzy, Blind Blake and Lonnie Johnson, Woody Mann and Bob Brozman explore the techniques and thinking that go into creating cohesive duet guitar parts that compliment each other. Each part is taught separately. They explain and illustrate how you can arrange a simple song through the use of new chord positions, simple picking syncopation ideas, and open tunings as well as walking you through the basics of how to select a key, use of a capo, and listening to the song in new ways. The duo presents effective techniques for improving improvisational skills while jamming with other musicians. Each guitar part is a solo tune in itself. The ideas and techniques covered in this lesson offer creative approaches to expanding all aspects of your playing. A detailed tab/music instructional booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD.
