Blind Blake was the premier ragtime blues guitarist of the 1920s. He expanded the alternating bass style to encompass the contemporary dance trends and more complex blues ideas introduced by the jazz bands of New Orleans and Chicago. His technique featured unique right-hand thumb rolls that evoked the feel of the Charleston dance step. In this DVD lesson, Woody Mann explores the ideas, techniques, and styles of a legendary musician who has influenced generations of country blues guitarists. A detailed tab/music instructional booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD.

  • August 21, 2008 Good Value All Round.

    I found it quite hard ... and still do! I've had it 2 months and I'm only on the 4th bar but it's made everything else I play a lot easier. The DVD is great, very clear and professionally made and very informative, due to this my understanding...

    of the guitar and music has reached another level. And considering I live in england I found it great value for money.
