Acoustic Guitar Workshop

Learn authentic acoustic blues guitar techniques online

Dear Guitar Player

As an eager student of the acoustic guitar, I have always been interested
in discovering the mechanics of playing different styles. The blues and
ragtime had me reeling to work out how something so simple as a few chords
thrown together, could be so dammed difficult. I had been
through loads of normal books on fingerstyle but couldn't find the essence
of simplicity that the playing of Muddy Waters or Big Bill Broonzy conjured
up. It was frustrating.

I found I could play all kinds of bluesy instrumentals but lacked what I
felt was real blues. As all good things come to pass, I finally had my
eureka a few years down the line. I was listening to an album by Lightening
Hopkins and was amazed that all I was hearing was a four beat boom on the
bass strings and an occasional ting on the top.

Of course, there were other things happening - a pick here and a pick there
- but the essence was there in that rhythmic, 'boom, boom, boom, boom'.
From then on, I could hear the same in all the great players - Broonzy,
Johnson, etc. etc. I started from that four beat pattern and took it
from there. It's all a simple thing really. The hardest part is to train
your self to be simple and be clear about the bottom line. All the other
elements in the playing will fit together easily.

So, these sessions that I share with you, are just a small part of my own
discovery, and hopefully part of yours too.

Cheers Rick Payne
