Todd Albright's Twelve String Country Blues Guitar (DVD)

"This lesson explores my approach and techniques for playing the 12-string guitar. I will be tuning the guitar down to C in Standard tuning, and Vestapol in the key of Bb. This should make the lesson accessible to those who want to learn the arrangements with a six string rather than a 12 string guitar.

"This lesson explores my approach and techniques for playing the 12-string guitar. I will be tuning the guitar down to C in Standard tuning, and Vestapol in the key of Bb. This should make the lesson accessible to those who want to learn the arrangements with a six string rather than a 12 string guitar. The material presented is in no way note for note by the original artist on the original recordings, but offers a look at how to develop a style within the tradition. Paul Geremia once described his position as, “playing the music so that if the original artist were to walk in the door he would know it was his song being played. ‘Keep the intrinsic beauty as best you can and eventually you’ll wind up with your own style.’ And it’s in this sprit that we put this lesson together.” – Todd Albright.

Each tune is taught phrase by phrase and played slowly on a split-screen. A detailed tab/music booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD. The Bonus Audio section includes source recordings.

Tunes include: Rising River Blues, Delia, Kill It Kid, Leavin’ Blues, My Money Never Runs Out, Stomp Down Rider, Sweet Mary Blues, Savannah Mama, and Train That Carried My Girl From Town
