Expand your blues repertoire and master a breathtaking variety of licks and tricks using bottleneck slide guitar techniques. Bob Brozman's "complete toolbox" for intermediate players will teach you many of the innovations and techniques originally created by the traditional Mississippi Delta blues masters.
Bob's powerful one-chord version of Robert Johnson's Come On In My Kitchen becomes a real showpiece as he shows you how to add "scrunch" strokes, damping, palm harmonics, vibrato, slides, trills, and other techniques that bring the song to life. His up-tempo medley, Delta Memories, highlights the chopped rhythms, descending bass lines, string snapping, rolling triplets, barre technique and turnarounds favored by the early Delta innovators. Bob then features his own percussive slapping techniques and variations to give you a real workout.
Pulling out all the stops, Bob teaches Rollin' and Tumblin', a Charlie Patton tune which is brimming with material to challenge more advanced guitarists. In fact, this entire lesson provides an abundance of slide technique, new ideas for you to work on and amazing guitar applications for blues styles.
