If you just dabble in fingerstyle, or are now ready to finally give it a go, David Hamburger’s Essentials: Fingerstyle Blues is the ideal fretboard sandbox to dive into and get your fingerstyle blues bag sparked up. Intermediate flat-pick players will find the tunes to be very accessible, especially with David’s move-by-move guidance.
“In Essentials: Fingerstyle Blues, we’re going to explore ten different blues tunes in a variety of keys, tempos and grooves. Using both the steady bass and alternating thumb approach, we’ll check out essential articulations including hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides and quarter tone bends. We’ll learn about rhythmic anticipations and how they’re used to create syncopations on the blues. Using 12-bar, 24-bar and AABA forms in both standard and dropped-D tuning, we’ll work with pickup phrases, jump blues chord voicings and jazz chord substitutions. Finally, we’ll look at how to make bright keys like C and G sound funkier using minor pentatonic scales, and why call-and-response phrasing is key to improving your overall musicality.”
David cuts right to the chase in the edition of Essentials: Fingerstyle Blues. No boring exercises or tedious theory to struggle through – you will play your way through 10 Performance Studies, which include a performance demonstration and detailed move-by-move breakdown supplemented with tab, notation and Guitar Pro files.
