Hey guitarists! Here’s more acoustic blues secrets and another sample clip from DVD II of “Soul of Acoustic Guitar”.

Here, Jimmy teaches tons more styles with blues in E, and then gets into folk blues
(including Bob Dylan and Eric Clapton styles), finger picking, “claw-hammer” style, and folk.
Check it out and post your comment please!

    Looks like a great video, would like to see how he shows the techniques on the video, because it would not be of much use if you cannot follow it. Teaching styles vary a great deal in these how to videos. The content that he is showing looks great though.

  10. Jimmy,
    Ever since I saw you live at the Sweetwater 15 years ago I have been a big fan. This is great stuff. Look forward to it. I am also a friend of Pat Campbells.

    All looks great, hope the breakdowns are not to quick hate trying to workout what fingers are doing at a hundred miles an hour. Will be very interested to see what it’s going to cost. Ray, Christmas Island indian ocean territories Australia

    Agree with comments from Bill, Tony, Frank M. and others. If he will explain how he how he gets these sounds and provide tab or music for our use I think I would love the course.

    Brilliant, very informative, with plenty of interesting details of different styles. By the way, would be also helpful for guitar players if it was mantioned that at about 2 minutes of this video the tuning of the guitar is changed from usual to the open E tuning. Besides, I like the idea of playing with all five fingers of right hand. I always found it strange (as classic palyers do) to have five fingers but to play only with four of them… Highly recomended!

    Jimmy I must have been living under a rock to just be hearing of you. I’d say keep up the good work, but I can tell you have been doing good work for some time. Thanks for the chance to hear you.

    He’s obviously good, but way way over my head. Kinda discouraging me if I am supposed to ne able to follow what he is doing. Why would you send this to a brand new person?

    Hi, love this. I need to improve technique on acoustic and would be interested to hear about anything you’re doing.

    A real eye opener – and stuff I can use right there in the samples! I’m probably on board for this one – unless it’s outtasight expensive. Then we go back to the Jorma Kaukonen and Stefan Grossman vids- they are the best I’ve found…so far…

    Nice try. Really, beautiful. But the soul of acoustic guitar is not for sale! I don’t know how long you’ve been playin’ for jimmy, obviously some years, but you should know this. Nice try. Try changing the name of your little course. For your own soul’s sake. I ain’t buyin’ it jimmy.

  29. I just want to listen to your blues style.
