Art of Noodling (Beginning-Intermediate)

taught by Rolly Brown

The Art of Noodling reflects Rolly Browns ongoing campaign to offer user-friendly material which helps guitarists obtain more freedom on their instruments. In this case, "Noodling" refers to the ability to just pick up your guitar and make the music you hear in your head, whether its a country blues, a folk song, or a free improvisation. The pathway is a series of specific exercises which can be learned and memorized, but which, one hopes, will also be used as templates or models which can lead you to interesting musical explorations. Rolly deals with various concepts about melodic noodling and chordal noodling, covered at 3 different levels of difficulty, offering a basic place to start, as well as material to revisit over time, as you advance. Detailed tab/music PDF file is included on the DVD.
