his is part 2 of a 2-part course that features 60 lessons and almost four hours of music and instruction. It is a MUST for anyone interested in bottleneck blues guitar. The lessons cover in detail all country blues bottleneck styles and techniques and feature rare footage of Son House, Fred McDowell, Mance Lipscomb, Jesse Fuller, Furry Lewis and Bukka White. This second part of the course focuses on playing in Open D tuning (Vestapol). The first part, available here, presents Open G tuning (Spanish). Left hand playing techniques are discussed as well as choice of bottleneck/ slide and guitar to use.
Each tune is taught phrase by phrase and played slowly on a split-screen.
Also, each course features bonus downloadable audio tracks of the original 1920s and 1930s recordings of the original artists playing the songs.
