「Piedmont Style Country Blues Guitar Basics」

以前御紹介したアコースティック・デュオ "Piedmont Bluz" でございますが、奥さんである "Valerie Turner" さんが教本を出された様でございます。 ピードモント・スタイルの伝統を継承し、ワークショップもされてますので、ピードモント・スタイルを弾こうと思われる方には本格的な教本となるのではないかと思います。 (製本はされてないようですが・・)

Piedmont Style Country Blues Guitar Basics, my first book, will be going to print later this week, and what a journey it's been! This book presents accessible guitar arrangements inspired by the repertoires of Country Blues artists like Mississippi John Hurt, John Cephas, Elizabeth Cotten, Mance Lipscomb, John Jackson, Blind Willie McTell, Lead Belly, Papa Charlie Jackson, Rev. Gary Davis, Furry Lewis, and Son House. With over 20 music arrangements aimed at the beginner and intermediate levels, the songs in this book span a variety of keys, tunings, and timings, and are represented using a combination of chord charts, tablature, standard music notation, and accompanying audio. Interesting photographs and anecdotes round out the book and add to its charm. Stay tuned for information on how you can order a copy! (Book design by Benedict Turner)
