"If you love acoustic blues, or if you are an acoustic guitarist who would LOVE to learn to play acoustic blues, this DVD is a valuable part of your lessons.
Wisely, Homespun has set for an entire course to bring you through months and months of lessons, via DVD, to teach you acoustic blues. I love taking these courses because Homespun uses two images on the DVD, right and left hand, move very slowly, but also give you not only what a finished product could look like, but encourage you to explore and develop your own style. Here is the course, from start to finish:
1. Easy Steps to Blues Guitar DVD 1 and 2.
2. The Blues Bag 2 DVD set (learning more songs!)
3. Easy Steps to Blues Guitar Jamming DVD 1 and 2
4. The Fingerpicking Blues of Mississippi John Hurt
(all these are here at Amazon)
This is a course of months of learning, depending upon what level you are at, but ends up at some high level guitar playing! What is fun about The Blues Bag is that you can slowly learn a song, and then play it completely----but, if you are a more advanced player, there is SO much more you can do with it (as the DVDs show).
This is like a college syllabus of blues guitar 101 through graduation! The first DVD introduced me to the blues on acoustic guitar, was easy to use, and a lot of fun. DVD began the challenge. Bag of Blues is like having the reward of applying what you've learned.
best advice: get the entire course, A-Z, and enjoy! I've not found a better production anywhere."
