Aggressive, Percussive Acoustic Blues

This is a great and very recognizable acoustic style, reminiscent of the great Delta Blues players, such as Robert Johnson, Son House and Bukka White. This features a very strong upwards “pluck” with the thumb, while the other fingers tend to hit harder as well on the upper strings.

Throw in some carefully placed hammer and pull licks, along with some Country Blues bends, and you’re really wailing, “acoustic Blues-style!” Hope you enjoy this real left and right-hand acoustic workout!—Arlen Roth
