Volume One: A Hands on Course in Traditional Blues Piano
David helps you to systematically build coodination between left and right hand. After learning a variety of shuffle patterns, he gradually adds right hand rhythms, accents and licks until you are into your own soloing. As he teaches, David passes on invaluable information on blues scales, turnarounds, ending licks, rhythm parts and other elements which, when put all together, comprise the real blues sound.
By the time this CD lesson ends, you'll be jamming and improvising fast and slow blues in major and minor keys, and have a number of rhythmic variations in your left hand to add drive and pulse to your playing. Most importantly, you'll have the solid basis from which to go on to more complex and demanding techniques in this fabulous American musical form.
