Del methodically teaches five songs: Nothing in Rambling, Boogie Mysterioso, Straw Broom Boogie, On the Wall and Boogie Woogie Country Girl. After performing each one, she expertly breaks it down, providing musical analyses of her thumb-and-three finger picking, her chord work and the integration of bass lines into the blues arrangement.
