  • Code:DLCOHPE21
  • Skill Level:Intermediate (4)

David Bennett Cohen, a master of rock and blues piano, brings his extensive musical knowledge and experience to intermediate-level players. This first of a two-part video series concentrates on playing blues in minor keys. It’s packed with essential music instruction and it features blues scales, chord progressions, riffs, runs and solos that will build on any piano student’s skills and musical technique.

David covers a wide range of blues styles and feels: a guitar-derived “half-clave” calypso-like rhythm; a cool slow blues; shuffles; and syncopated rhythms. David provides innumerable insights into blues improvisation and musicianship that will enhance every piano player’s ability to bring real depth to their music.

Note: There is no printed music with this course. From David Bennett Cohen: "When I teach, I very rarely use written music. The stuff I teach is really not meant to be read, and my teaching is very clear and easy to follow."

David Bennett Cohen does it again! His new video series on blues piano is absolutely terrific. True to form, David has filled the videos with extremely valuable tips and tricks. But, just like his other Homespun lessons, he goes way beyond just demonstrating how to play the blues, David lays out how his musical mind works; that is, how he “thinks” at the piano...and this I find valuable to no end. Thank you David for another one of your comprehensive guides into the soul of blues piano.
