Acoustic Blues Guitar Styles is an introduction to fingerstyle acoustic blues guitar, the style made popular by Robert Johnson, Bill Broonzy, and Mance Lipscomb. Following the success of the popular Acoustic Guitar Styles, Larry Sandberg’s Acoustic Blues Guitar Styles is an instructional book geared towards the intermediate guitar player, not only to teach fingerstyle blues technique, but also to approach the music creatively and with feeling and rhythm.
Part One teaches you the preliminaries, such as reading a chord chart and working out a 12-bar blues in different keys. Part Two teaches you touch, timing, and basic fingerpicking technique. Part Three teaches you how to play stylistically, with lessons on how to incorporate bends, vibrato, alternating bassnotes, and rhythmic variations into your playing. All musical exercises are presented in both standard notation and tablature, and are supported by audio tracks.

Following the author's successful "Acoustic Guitar Styles" (Routledge, April 2002), this book introduces the readers to the basics of finger-style acoustic gitar blues. Most woul-be blues guitarists today learn primarily from books, using notation or guitar tablature, reinforced by CDs, videos, or live teachers. Often this involves rote retition rather than encouraging creative exploration. Students become copycats, able to play by rote but lacking the conceptual equipment to create music on their own. Worst of all, because they learn to play notes rather than working outwards from rhythmic gestures in the picking hands, their music lacks rhythmic vitality. This book concentrates on keeping your playing rhythmic and alive.About the Author:
Larry Sandberg has taught guitar for over 40 years; he currently teaches at the Denver Folklore Center, University of Colorado extension school, and privately. He is the author of several best-selling guitar books, including The Acoustic Guitar Guide and Acoustic Guitar Styles.
