Starting with the Delta style where the thumb pounds out its steady, compelling bass, Mary shows you how to add single notes, up-the-neck bends, movable chords and powerful boogie-woogie patterns. Then she walks you through a plethora of blues turnarounds, the figures that add color and spice to your arrangements when you use them between vocal lines. Mary mixes classic and contemporary songs to add variety to her teaching and help you diversify your own repertoire. In this video, she uses Leroy Carr’s “Midnight Hour Blues” and Big Bill Broonzy’s “Key to the Highway” (made famous by Eric Clapton) as well as her own tunes to show you how blues techniques and structures really work and how to make them work for you. Songs and techniques are presented in a progressive order of difficulty. Tab is included on the CD-ROM. Level is appropriate for advanced/intermediate players.
