Jim Bruce Blues Guitar Master Class - The Blues In A

Blues Guitar lesson Online - http://tinyurl.com/jb-blues-in-a The key of A is possibly used even more than the key of E in acoustic blues. It offers plenty of versatility and lends itself to a variety of techniques. Each blues man approached this key in different ways, often depending upon their local region and the influences of their fellow blues men - the work of the most creative blues guitar players was copied without mercy! In the hands of someone like Lightnin' Hopkins, a blues in A becomes something with a power and depth that needs some work for us modern guitarists to make authentic. We have to start somewhere, and technique is where we begin. In this class I take a look at Lightnin's tricks in the key of A, and also compare the approach to Johnson and Scrapper Blackwell.
