Preface to the Acoustic Blues Guitar Program

 

As all indigenous American music (Classic Rock, Blues, Jazz, Rap, and Alternative) comes from Blues it makes technical, theoretical and historical sense to study Blues first, as you would study core curriculum in college, before electives.

The course is accelerated and graduated:

…graduated in the sense that, the first song (Hendrix’s Red House) is very easy...the next song is a little harder until by the time you reach the tenth song (Same Old Blues by Freddie King, Clapton’s favorite guitar player) you can play anything you can hear…That is the promise I make to all my beginning students.

…accelerated in the sense that the more you learn…the faster you learn…by that I mean you can learn something difficult, faster, like Robert Johnson’s Crossroads if you’ve learned John Lee Hooker’s Gonna Miss You When You’re Gone, first…that saves you lesson money and gets you to the music you really want to be playing more quickly.

To make an example of my betters… When the great library of Alexandria was burned by Julius Caesar in his conquest of Cleopatra and Egypt all of the published works of Aristotle were lost… the only writings left were crib notes he used to carry to class to teach from…so, too, is this free volume I am offering you to download .This is not my teaching, but rather notes of my live teaching so that you will remember what I have taught you when you get home.
