Delta Blues Monday #9 

Its Monday! So that means its that time again to learn a new blues lick. Grab your guitar and check out Delta Blues Mondays #9. 

This one is a proper groovy little thing. Great to play over 2 bars of A7 and E7. I love this lick because its got that bluesy hammer on/pull off thing going on and then switches between straight 16ths and swung 8ths which really gives it an edgy feel. Hope you like it!

 

Delta Blues Monday #8 

Here's a little something different. We've been doing 4 bars of a dominant 7 chord for about 7 weeks now, so I thought we could look at the next four measures of a 12 bar blues, so here is 2 bars of A7 and 2 bars of E7. I like this lick because of its simplicity more than anything; you can get a lot out of simple ideas. This is effectively the same lick on the first two measures but playing with different rhythms.

Introducing... Delta Blues Mondays! 

Hi Guys,

I always get a bit blue on Mondays. I guess its a bit of a come down from a lovely weekend of playing gigs and dashing around the country, so this year to combat those feelings I've decided to do something creative with my time. Every week on a Monday I'll release a video of a fabulous delta blues lick (and teach it to you) on my YouTube Channel. I thought I should take inspiration from my Monday blues and do something fun and bluesy! Along with the video will be a free TAB/Score!

Let me know what you think!

cheers

Hello! 

I've finally got round to updating my website, its been on the to do list for some time (right next to learning piano, crocheting a star wars character and boxing). 2019 is shaping up to be a year of dramatic changes in my musical life; Mawkin (my folk band of 16 years) will be hanging up their folk beards later this year and Eliza Carthy and the Wayward Band will be having some what of a fallow year writing tunes and keeping their collective heads out of trouble. All of these changes means I find myself being able to finally work on some solo material thats been bouncing around in my brain for sometime. I'm hoping to create a bit of a Vlog/Blog/YouTube channel dedicated to this side of my work and I hope you guys will want to get involved with that - any suggestions for videos etc will be greatly appreciated! You can contact me here.

All in all, a very exciting time to create a new website! Have a look around, theres videos, photos, tutorials and you can even book a Skype lesson! Thanks for reading guys! 

cheers

David
