DVD Two – Essentials of Fingerstyle Blues: Happy Traum's “easy steps” learning concept breaks down the all-important steady thumb blues style into modules that can be digested one element at a time. This nearly foolproof method for building solid guitar technique includes shuffle and boogie-woogie bass lines, blues scales, playing solos up the neck, variations on blues chord progressions and arrangements of Rock Me, Baby, Baby Please Don't Go, Trouble in Mind and other blues classics. 90-MIN. • INCLUDES MUSIC + TAB • EARLY INTERMEDIATE LEVEL.
