RAGTIME FINGERSTYLE GUITARSignUp Now
Ragtime Fingerstyle Guitar
Long ago, players like Blind Blake and Reverend Gary Davis developed an extraordinary style of playing that fused country and blues with intricate fingerpicking and a honky-tonk vibe, later elaborated on by players like Chet Atkins and Jorma Kaukonen. This "ragtime" approach is great fun, and in these acoustic guitar lessons Anders Mouridsen will teach you the elements of this energetic style.
In this tutorial, Anders Mouridsen will teach you ragtime, or country-blues, fingerstyle guitar. Anders will introduce this style and discuss the history a bit, then teach thumb independence. Then it's time to add chords and melodies, after which we'll learn some examples inspired by Blind Blake, Rev. Gary Davis, and Scott Joplin.
