Legendary Country Blues Guitar Duets (Beginning-Intermediate)

taught by John Miller and Frank Basile

The Country Blues guitar duet tradition is rich and varied, but it has been relatively unexplored by present day blues players. This is a shame for a couple of reasons - there are a lot of great duets that merit being worked out and played for todays audiences, preserving the music, but theres also just the sheer enjoyment and fun involved in playing this music with a kindred spirit, someone who hears and responds to this music as you do yourself.

In Legendary Country Blues Duets, Frank and John have selected some of the really prime guitar duets in the Country Blues tradition to teach you. The songs theyve chosen for the lesson have been picked to provide you with a variety of different duet approaches, sounds and techniques. In several instances, the two guitar parts are played out of different tunings or positions. In the course of the lesson, youll work through and learn Kansas Joe & Memphis Minnies Pile Drivin Blues, Walter Beasley and Sylvester Weavers Toad Frog Blues, Will Batts and Dan Sanes Country Woman, Yank Rachell and Dan Smiths Squeaky Work Bench Blues and Frank Stokes and Dan Sanes Whats The Matter Blues.

For each one of the songs in the lesson, John and Frank take turns teaching their parts, which are then shown in slowed-down split-screen versions of each duet part followed by the two guitars together. TAB and standard notation of the guitar parts and the song lyrics are included as a PDF file on the DVD, as are the original recordings of the songs. You can choose to learn one or the other of the parts, or learn both parts and teach one to a friend. There is a richness in shared musical performance that is yours for the taking here. Learn Legendary Country Blues Duets and find out just how rewarding playing Country Blues with another guitarist can be.
