Mance Lipscomb Ebook

Ten songs are taught with tablature and lesson video's (190 minutes in total)

I don't believe in reproducing "historical recordings"; I mean by that,  I'm playing these Mance Lipscomb songs in his style but not exactly how he played them.  Some songs have influences of other artists and after 45 years of playing blues, probably some of my own.  Mance neither did play the same song twice.  You'll hear that when you listen to him playing different versions of the same song.

Mance was also known for his "rushing".  He often started a song at a medium tempo but at the end he was playing it at breakneck-speed.  This is an essential part of his musical style and I followed that but not always though.

When it comes to the left hand I would say these songs are easy to intermediate.  When it comes to the right hand I'd say you'll have to have some stamina to keep that bass going.

I also spend time on how to sing the song.  Most songs have lyrics written below the tablature for ease of learning.

Check out my introductory video with free tab on that typical Mance Lipscomb bass (link to the tab is in the videodescription).  Essential to learn his style!

1- Ain't It Hard / Mance Lipscomb
A monotonic bass tune in a seldom used key (A minor).  Another proof of Mance's ingenuity when creating an arrangement.

2- So Different Blues / Mance Lipscomb
Mance gave it that title because it's really "different".  It has a few surprises in the chordprogression.
Key of C

I combined several versions.  A real blues standard and not difficult to play.  Interesting break as well.
Key of E

Mance really made this classic his own. Fast paced and great breaks.
