(or any other email address, if you let me know).
This may take a few hours as I live in Europe.

Following songs/TABS are included :


1- Texas Blues in A

A slow to medium slow instrumental.  7 verses based on the playing of Texas blues greats like Blind Lemon Jefferson, Lightin' Hopkins, Mance Lipscomb and Funny Papa Smith.

You should consider this song as a "library" of licks and right hand techniques in the key of A.

4- Crazy Blues

The first commercially published blues in 1920, sung by Mamie Smith.  It's more a ragtime and vaudeville song with a bluesy feeling.  My rendition is based on the singing of Leon Redbone and the playing of Roger Sutcliffe. Key of C   Lesson video 29 minutes

5- Sportin' Life Blues

I arranged Dave Van Ronk's version and added some Lonnie Johnson fills to make it more interesting. 

Drop D tuning.  Intro/outro, verse, solo and fills are taugh and transcribed.  Great exercise in understated playing.

6- Rope Stretchin' Blues

One of Blind Blake's most intriguing songs.  The tab of my version contains the intro/outro, the first verse, variations used in other verses, the solo.

7- Railroad Blues

This guitararrangement (in the key of C) is based on Memphis Minnie's "Chickasaw Train Blues".  Her harddriving style is very apparent in this song.  It's also one of the very few songs she recorded without accompaniment of one of her husbands.  The 2 unique guitar solo's are really setting this piece apart. I transcribed the song completely apart from a few fills, which are explained in the lesson video (29 minutes)

8- Fighting The Jug

A great Blind Blake song in the key of F.  Lotsa double bass playing and interesting solo's.

Fast instrumental in the key of E.  The lesson video features my amplified nylonstring guitar but for the perfomance I use a steelstring. Lesson video 20 minutes.
