Product Overview


In this Homespun instructional video, Bob Brozman uses a variety of instruments including a Weissenborn, a Dobro-type resophonic and a National steel, to teach the funky blues tunes, cool riffs and adventurous improvisations that he pulls from his seemingly bottomless bag of tricks.

His course in lap style slide guitar will open up exciting musical ideas and powerful techniques for anyone who wants to get into the real blues sound.

Playing in open D and open G tunings, Bob passes along all the sounds and techniques that make up this compelling style. He teaches pieces that range from the "primitive" one-chord renditions of Charlie Patton to modern-day country/swing blues.

You'll get instruction in the use of the round-nose bar and how you can attain quality vibrato, pitch precision, good tone, blue notes, rhythmic effects and control of the slide. Bob details licks, turnarounds and improvisations along with numerous exercises and right hand picking drills to help you develop your picking strength.

By the time you complete this lesson you'll have an arsenal of licks and the improvisational skills you'll need to go on to even more challenging material.

Note: You can use any guitar to play this style, although it would be best to have one with a high action.
