In this lesson Tom Feldmann takes you step by step through 15 classic Son House tunes that span every phase of Son's recorded career. This 4 hour lesson is undoubtedly the most extensive look into the music of Son House and the techniques he developed. DVD One highlights 8 songs in Spanish tuning. While DVD Two focuses on 7 songs using the Vestapol tuning (Open D), Standard and most suprising to students of Houses's catalog, Cross-Note tuning with Clarksdale Moan. Also included on DVD Two is a bonus interview with Stefan Grossman where he talks extensively about meeting Son House and recording with him. Rare performances of Son House following his rediscovery are used throughout the lesson. The original audio tracks are included where footage is not used.
