The Art of Blues Rhythm

by Robben Ford

As one of the most emulated blues players of our time, Robben Fords impeccable soloing techniques, phrasing and tone have been the subject of several books and videos but for the first time, Robben brings his smooth and tasty rhythm playing to the forefront in this 86 minute DVD. He explains and demonstrates dozens of blues rhythm concepts and techniques from 12-bar shuffle blues rhythms to mixing in jazz chords to blues comping. Robben also takes you through several of his tunes showing his chord voicings, rhythms and right-hand picking/finger techniques. Robben also answers questions about double-stops, his guitars, recording and road gear. HL00320708 ISBN 1-4234-3548-6
