This class is intended as a sequel to my class “Introduction to Fingerstyle Blues.” We will take the techniques we learned from the previous class (alternating bass and monotonic bass) and apply them to several early blues songs from players like Mississippi John Hurt, Big Bill Broonzy, John Fahey, Robert Johnson and Blind Blake. Songs will include: “From Four Until Late,” “Pig Meat Strut,” “Satisfied and Tickled, Too,” “Police Dog Blues, “Poor Boy Long Ways from Home,” and several others. You don’t need to have taken the “Introduction…” class to take this one, but you should be familiar with and comfortable playing alternating and monotonic bass patterns.

Pete Madsen is a teacher, writer, guitarist and performer based in Berkeley, California. He has written numerous lessons for Acoustic Guitar and Play Guitar magazines; and is the author of "FretMaster: Slide Guitar" and the "Fretmaster: Funk Book," both published by Backbeat books; as well as "A Guide to Acoustic Blues Guitar" and "The CAGED System for Guitar."
