Country Blues Guitar styles span a wide horizon. In these three lessons the ideas and techniques of Rev. Gary Davis, Charley Jordan, Tommy Johnson and Mississippi John Hurt are presented. The arrangements vary from alternating bass to a Delta strum to a monotonic bass. In notation and tablature with three compact discs featuring 3 full hours of note-by-note, phrase-by-phrase instruction.

LESSON ONE: Rev. Davis's Cocaine Blues and You Got The Pocket Book, I Got The Key both played in the key of C and in what Rev. Davis called "old fashion" pickin'. The popular blues Crow Jane played in the key of E.

LESSON TWO: Charley Jordan's Keep It Clean and Hunkie Tunkie Blues both played in the key of E and presenting Jordan's unusual blues approach. Tommy Johnson's Canned Heat played in dropped D tuning.
