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.
Working in a variety of keys and tunings (dropped D and open G), she introduces you to the concept of movable chords and walking basses, and the standard boogie bass that can be played while picking riffs on the high strings.
