I live in Colorado, where the highways, the rivers and the train lines give you that country feeling down to the holes in your socks. I play my stuff on old instruments, but not expensive ones. I like to make up songs, play with words and try and get a feeling across. Love playing, singing. Blues is the truth, but that doesn't mean it's all bad news. I love hokum songs too. Keep on ringing the changes, people!

Hi,


I live in Tijuana, México, and I began to study guitar 4 years ago. In the last year and half I've be trying to learn to play acoustic blues. I have bought several methods (John Miller, Ernie Hawkins, Stefan Grossman and Kenny Sultan audio books and DVD's.) I would like to be in contact with players in the San Diego area (San Diego, La Mesa, Chula Vista, San Ysidro) who might have studied from these books, meet and share some learning tips.

Manuel

Ian : "WALKING BLUES" was an original by Mr. SON HOUSE, Mr. ROBERT JOHNSON did his `arrangment`. "CROSSCUT SAW" was an original by Mr.RICHARD HARNEY, but Mr.s BIG JOE WILLIAMS and ALBERT KING did their `arrangements`. So you're just following in the tradition of making the music yours, not an art of mimicry.

It's sometime since I looked at that site and so had forgotten what it consisted of. Sorry about that - worth keeping in mind though. If you have songs in mind it is worth googling the title and putting in tablature if you read tab and not music. In my experience there is more tab found free than music. In a little while I will be putting some things together for a workshop on beginners fingerstyle blue but that will not be until I return to New Zealand in September. If I find anything else I'll let you know and will contact you when I have done mine and if you want them I can email them to you. Cheers for now, Ian

Lowell, this is another site and includes the Steve McWilliam tablature and more by some of his friends. http://www.acousticfingerstyle.com/midifil2.htm

Cheers, Ian

Hey Lowell, Stefan Grossman has a good few starter albums for Country Guitar and if you are lucky you will find some tablature on the web. One place you might try first is http://www.stevemcwilliam.co.uk/guitar/tab.htm There is a lot of stuff there, not all blues, and some more complicated arrangements too. However, if you look closely there are some that you might well be able to start with. They are in TablEdit format and you can download the software from a link on the site if you do not already have it. There is a lot in TablEdit format on the web and worth getting as you can listen to how it is played (sound is rubbish but you can get the general idea). Also, look at YouTube videos as they can give you an idea of how something is played once you have got up and going. Good luck and happy playing.

Played a Gibson Songwriter this weekend. Very (very) nice guitar. Nice deep, clean sound, very playable (though I don't like the feel of a finished neck). I love my low-end Martin, but a little depressing to come back home to it after playing such a nice guitar. :-)

Anyone check out the latest Black Crowes release this week, Crowology? It's 20 acoustic renditions of some of their best tunes. Has some good bluesy acoustic pieces, some good slide / resonator licks, and nice use of harmonica, fiddle, piano, and banjo.
