The late Bob Brozman was a master of bottleneck blues as well as Gypsy swing, calypso, ragtime, Hawaiian, Indian, African, Japanese/Okinawan, Caribbean and other World Music styles. He had been called "an instrumental wizard" and "a walking archive of 20th Century American music." Until his untimely passing in 2013, Bob maintained a nearly superhuman schedule, touring constantly throughout North America, Europe, Australia, Asia, and Africa. He recorded numerous albums and won the Guitar Player Readers' Poll two years in a row in both the blues and slide guitar categories. In 1999, he co-founded International Guitar Seminars, which hosted over 120 students annually at sites in California, New York, and Canada.
Bob was also a linguist, anthropologist, and ethnomusicologist, lecturing part- time at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia.
Bob Brozman's remarkably detailed instruction starts with the basics, including the open tunings needed to get the true bottleneck sound. Through careful explanations, exercises and songs, this video reveals the secrets of traditional blues/slide guitar.
