Synopsis by Sarah Ing
Viewers can learn directly from a master when Fruteland Jackson teaches Beginning Delta Blues Guitar. Full of slow rifts and characteristic twang, the southern style is a seductive form of traditional blues. Jackson breaks it down for students and allows them to learn the Delta slide technique. The video also includes blues tuning and basic chord forms. For the visual learner, onscreen graphics speed the process. The lesson features diagrams and a read-along booklet as well. Jackson took home the W.C. Handy Award for Blues Education in 1997.
