Matt Brandt - Jump Blues - 2 DVD Set
Cult figure, rock & roll legend and music writer, Cub Koda defined jump blues as “an up-tempo, jazz-tinged style of blues that first came to prominence in the mid to late '40s. Usually featuring a vocalist in front of a large, horn-driven orchestra or medium sized combo with multiple horns, the style is earmarked by a driving rhythm, intensely shouted vocals, and honking tenor saxophone solos - all of those very elements a precursor to rock & roll. The lyrics are almost always celebratory in nature, full of braggadocio and swagger. This 2-DVD set is presented as a complete methodology covering theory, comping, accompanist riffs, horn lines arranged for guitar, and several approaches for soloing drilling down on many approaches for opening up the neck for the scales, arpeggios and riffs that are employed in "swing" and "jump blues" guitar. It also ices the cake with 12 tasty solos, followed by in-depth analysis of several jump blues giants such as Brian Setzer, T-Bone Walker, Charlie Christian, Gatemouth Brown and Freddie King, all of whom have their own signature sound. Accompanying vocalists and soloists is a big part of the style and is as challenging and rewarding as soloing. A sizable chunk of these DVDs are dedicated to voicings, pulling off various rhythms, and locking up with the rhythm section. Hands-on learning tools included with "Jump Blues" are: text lesson guide, chord charts, practice rhythm tracks, as well as bonus material. Secure PIN enclosed in DVD package for quick and secure download of learning tools!

Bo Carter - The Guitar Of Bo Carter - DVD
Taught by John Miller. Bo Carter was a great guitar player. He played with absolute facility in a variety of tunings and keys and his harmonic sense was unique in the Country Blues. He was a player of unusual versatility, subtlety and imagination. As with other players of his generation, the origins of Bo's music are shrouded in mystery, and it is very unlikely we'll ever find an explanation for the harmonic richness of his music, so different from other musicians of his region. Bo's right hand approach was different - picking with all fingers and moving fluidly between alternation, thumping, and runs with his thumb. Tunes include: "Let Me Roll You Lemon, Pussy Cat Blues, Policy Blues, Dinner Blues, My Baby, Arrangement For Me Blues".

If you are interested in traditional blues, Brad shows you how to approach playing the blues using both theoretical and practical methods. You will learn how to play blues style rhythm on several variations of the twelve-bar blues progression. You will then learn the blues scale at several positions on the neck and learn how to apply those "blues notes" in a free-form improvisational style over the twelve-bar blues progression. This section not only increases your knowledge of the guitar fingerboard as it relates to the blues, but also provides you with a method for increasing your improvisational skills. After laying this groundwork, Brad then examines common blues phrasing, technique and standard blues licks and demonstrates how to apply them. He also shows you examples of licks played in the style of  Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robert Johnson and Eric Clapton. Brad even demonstrates how Bill Monroe's blues licks on the mandolin can be incorporated on the guitar. In addition to teaching you how to play straight blues, Brad also demonstrates and teaches how you might take tunes that you may already know from the standard flatpicking repertoire and spice them up with blues licks. If you are tired of playing flatpicked fiddle tunes and bluegrass songs the same old way, you will greatly appreciate Brad's instruction on how you can add excitement and interest to songs that you already play by adding a blues flavor.

David Hamburger - Blues Alchemy - 2 DVD Set
Transform Your Leaden Licks into Improvisational Gold! As anyone who squeaked through 10th grade history knows, the alchemists were a semi-scientific posse of medieval individuals utterly hung up on the notion of transforming lead into gold.

These DVDs are about learning to play the changes, but not in the sense that jazz musicians do - it isn't about learning every arpeggio and mode under the sun. Instead, on ten diverse chord progressions, master blues alchemist David Hamburger will teach you how to transform your blues bag into gold by learning how to "target tones" and "play the changes." This hands-on playing course guides the student through 10 distinct blues rhythm patterns and variations, 10 distinct solos and variations, plus dozens of extra blues licks and tricks of the trade!

Blind Lemon Jefferson - The Guitar Of Blind Lemon Jefferson - DVD
Taught by Ari Eisinger. Blind Lemon Jefferson inspired a generation of bluesmen but had few imitators due to the complexity of his guitar playing and the distinctiveness of his high clear voice. Tom Shaw, a bluesman and friend of Lemon from the 1920s said this about his playing: "Lemon was strictly a bluesman. And he was the kind of bluesman you didn't have every day on the street. He was the king. Wherever he pulled his guitar out, he was the king there. Wasn't no use for anybody else to come up talkin' about playin' against him, 'cause they couldn't even do what he was doin' - all they could do was look and wonder how in the hell he done it". In this lesson Ari Eisinger explains the secrets to Lemon's playing technique and style. He teaches five of Blind Lemon's most popular and intriguing arrangements phrase by phrase and note by note. Tunes include: "Matchbox Blues Black Horse Blues, Yo Yo Blues, Bad Luck Blues, One Dime Blues".

Lonnie Johnson - The Guitar Of Lonnie Johnson - 2 DVD Set
Lonnie Johnson pioneered the single-string solo guitar styles that we are accustomed to hearing today in rock, blues and jazz music. He played with blues and jazz greats including Texas Alexander, Duke Ellingon, Louie Armstrong and Bessie Smith, and used the guitar as a solo instrument in jazz bands years before Charlie Christian. His recorded blues and jazz solos, including his famous duets with the early jazz guitarist Eddie Lang, are exemplary both for their incredibly beautiful guitar tone and for their sheer, jaw-dropping virtuosity. His "To Do This You Got To Know How" remains one of the most amazing guitar solos ever recorded. Although he was influential beyond measure, his reputation has lately taken a back seat to more famous blues players whose influence is often exaggerated as much as Johnson's is underestimated. In this double DVD set, the first devoted in its entirety to the guitar style of Lonnie Johnson, Ari Eisinger explores Lonnie Johnson's blues style in detail, presenting stylistic hallmarks of Johnson's playing including a discussion of left hand fingerings, use of diminished chords and Lonnie’s blues playing in the Key of D. Ari teaches eight guitar breaks from some of Lonnie's best tunes. These include his instrumental masterpiece "To Do This You Got To Know How", his jazzy "Uncle Ned Don't Use Your Head", his evocative "Woke Up With the Blues In My Fingers" and "I'm So Tired Of Living All Alone", Lonnie's version of the song Skip James recorded as "I'm So Glad". The original old recordings of all the tunes are included as well.

John Miller - Memphis Blues Guitar - DVD
Memphis has long been a landing place for musicians from the surrounding rural areas in Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi, and in the 1920s and 1930s, it was a wide open town with plenty of opportunities for musicians to perform their music and make a living. As a result of Memphis' hub status, it developed a strong blues scene in the 1920s and 1930s, with a host of outstanding singers and players. Many of these musicians had successful careers as recording artists, but a surprisingly large number of similarly gifted musicians went unrecorded or only got the opportunity to record a few titles. This DVD lesson offers instruction in the music of many of the finest guitarists to record out of Memphis in the 1920s and 1930s. Included on this DVD are transcriptions and teaching of performances from the spectacular and hugely influential Memphis Minnie, transplanted Mississippians Furry Lewis, Robert Wilkins and Frank Stokes and more obscure names from the past like Tom Dickson and Allen Shaw. The songs that are taught on the DVD have been selected for their musical merit, but also to build your skills as a Country Blues guitarist, with numbers in D, G, E and C in standard tuning, as well as Open G tuning. The technique building that will come from learning these tunes will give you tools to go in whatever direction you wish to take your music. A detailed tab/music booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD. This includes all the lyrics to the songs as well as transcriptions of the guitar playing. The original old recordings of all the tunes is also included. Songs include: Tom Dickson "Happy Blues", Allen Shaw "I Couldn't Help It", Robert Wilkins "Long Train Blues", Frank Stokes "Frank Stokes' Dream", Memphis Minnie "Reachin’ Pete", and Furry Lewis "Good Looking Girl Blues".

"Sweet Potato Fries" combines the sounds of Robert Johnson and Big Bill Broonzy, while "Walking Stick" and "It's Good To Be Back Home" simulate the alternating bass Piedmont blues styles of Doc Watson and Etta Baker. This lesson will open up exciting new possibilities and musical explorations for guitarists at all levels!

Frank Stokes - The Guitar Of Frank Stokes - DVD
Frank Stokes grew up playing the Blues before WWI, when it was just an obscure local folk music from the north of the Mississippi Delta. His tremendous voice and skillful guitar work helped to popularize the Blues as he toured all over the South in Doc Watts Medicine Show, provided entertainment at parties and fish-fries where he was invited to play, and 'busking' in the streets for spare change. Frank played in Jack Kelly's Jug Busters, as the Jug Band craze took hold in the 1920s. Together with Dan Sane they became known as 'The Beale Street Sheiks', sometimes adding Will Betts on fiddle, and often being invited to play for white audiences. He recorded 38 sides for Paramount and Victor, including his blend of blues, ragtime, minstrel tunes, and popular songs which made his repertoire one of the most interesting of its time. With the arrival of the Great Depression and the decrease in recording opportunities, Stokes and Sane went back to playing street corners, occasional circuses, and traveling shows. He passed away September 12, 1955. In this DVD, Tom Feldmann teaches the ins and outs of 10 classic Frank Stokes arrangements in C, D, A, G, and E. This a great lesson for players of all levels looking to build a repertoire of blues and good-time tunes. In addition the original recordings of all the tunes are included. Songs include: "Take Me Back, Tain't Nobody's Business If I Do, I Got Mine, How Long, Mr. Crump Don't Like It, Stomp That Thing, Memphis Rounders Blues, Bedtime Blues, Sweet To Mama, Mistreatin' Blues".
