My next project.  The songs below will be taught.

As usual I pay special attention to the singing, I'm told I'm one of the very few teachers that does this.
Will be available when you see the performance video's for all the songs (will take some months).


I teach according the tab in front of me.  All songs (except Rock Me Baby) are  transcribed so you can play a full arrangement with intro/outro and guitarsolo's.

1- Rock Me Baby

Key of E
A classic blues with some unusual twists.  The left hand is very easy but the right hand gets a real workout.   Every move is slowly demonstrated and explained.

2- If I Could Holler Like a Mountain Jack

Key of A
Inspired by Baby Tate, Blind Boy Fuller and Reverend Gary Davis.
Performance/Lesson video

3- You Can Always Tell

Key of D (dropped D)
Inspired by Baby Tate and Blind Boy Fuller


4- Mean Ol' Frisco

Key of E
Another classic and great workout for your right hand.

5- Long Tall Mama

Key of C
Big Bill Broonzy's masterpiece.  The main difficulty is how to incorporate the singing with the guitar.  The singing of every verse is demonstrated slowly.  Intro, verse and all 4 solo's are tabbed out.

6- Country Boy

Key of E
Muddy Waters in standard tuning with slide.

7- One Dime Blues

Key of E
Blind Lemon Jefferson's masterpiece.

8- Don't You Leave Me Here

Key of G
Inspired by Jelly Roll Morton and the version of Jorma Kaukonen of Hot Tuna.


9- If You See My Saviour

Key of C
Thomas Dorsey's  first gospel recording.  He would go on composing many other classic gospel songs like 'My Precious Lord'.  This version is inspired by the playing of Ari Eisinger.

10- I Get The Blues When It Rains

Key of C
Big Bill Broonzy style of this jazz standard.
