Roy Book Binder, an accomplished blues guitarist and instructor, returns to teach students in this second video of a two-tape series. He demonstrates such complicated techniques as right-hand rhythms, chord variations, turnarounds, and different types of fingerpicking. Viewers will notice that Binder's style resembles that of Blind Lemon Jefferson, Jesse Thomas, and Pink Anderson. Traditional country and blues songs are taught, including "Texas Blues," "Every Day of the Week," "New Age Woman Blues," and "Polk City Ramble." The song "Anywhere You Go I Can Go There, Too" is used by Binder to show students how to handle an open D and other chords. ~ Elizabeth Smith, Rovi
Blues By the Book: Fingerpicking Blues, Video 1
Roy Book Binder was taught how to play the blues by Pink Anderson and other legendary bluesmen. He has performed with such artists as Bonnie Raitt, Ray Charles, and B.B. King. Binder also enjoys touring on his own, acquainting audiences with his brand of hillbilly country blues. On this tape, Binder teaches students how to handle runs, slides, pull-offs, hammer-ons, and several of his favorite licks. He also demonstrates open-string techniques, turnarounds, damping, and endings. Binder helps viewers learn how to play both "Black Dog Blues" and "Hesitation Blues." These traditional blues techniques provide students with a strong foundation for learning other blues styles. ~ Elizabeth Smith, Rovi
