¥Mostly acoustic blues guitar is played solo. But by playing it as guitar duets, you can broaden the range of its sound more widely. In this video lesson series, the guitar duets are presented by Bob Brozman and Woody Mann who are both solo and session guitarists of the first rank. Each of their parts played with fingerpicking can be played solo. So, the students who are solo-oriented can enjoy it, too. But of course if you master each part, please try to play with your friends. And you will be able to taste relish of not "lead and backing" but complex blues guitar duets with two fingerpicking. These videos are produced by Tokio Uchida and shot in Japan!
