https://jimbruceguitar.com Blues Lessons This Doc Watson guitar lesson featuring Deep River Blues is the second in the series (maybe the last - we'll see!) Anyone serious about acoustic blues guitar and studying blues guitarists should take a look at the Travis style of picking and incorporate it into their playing, even if they want to play the blues in a different style. Learn how to play acoustic blues guitar in Doc's inimitable style

Here, we take a look at those 'fiddly bits' that appear in Doc's rendition of Deep River. These are the little things that suddenly appear and blow us away with their magic, such as double thumb beats and added syncopation with thumb/finger combination strokes. It's even more interesting when you consider that Doc (like other great masters such as Gary Davis, Broonzy,Hopkins) used just one finger on his picking hand to achieve these results. I hope you enjoy it - come back again!

The full range of lessons available show how to play blues guitar in various styles, such as delta blues (Robert Johnson), Texas blues (Lightnin' Hopkins), Chicago swing blues (Big Bill Broonzy), and ragtime blues (Blind Blake, Blind Boy Fuller, Willie Walker). Learn blues guitar in the style of Carolina blues (Floyd Council, Pink Anderson, Scrapper Blackwell), bottleneck and open tunings. Many blues guitarists are covered in detail.

There are two videos for Doc Watson Guitar Lessons on this channel - this video is the first part of an on-line video lesson and gives an insight into his complex finger picking style.

It's true that basic finger picking is very simple - you either hit one string with thumb and the next one with a finger, or pinch two or three strings together with thumb and finger(s)! Of course, it's how we use our thumb and fingers that make all the difference. I've noticed that many, many older school blues guitar masters just used one finger on their right hand - Doc Watson, Reverend Gary Davis, Scrapper Blackwell, Blind Boy Fuller, Floyd Council, Big Bill Broonzy, and the list goes on.

Often, the right thumb jumps across to the treble strings to help out, which adds to the syncopation. It becomes more and more evident that the right thumb is crucial to creating the sound. It can double the beat, make an off-beat, strum across the strings and produce single string runs when used alternately with one of the fingers (usually the index.)

Enjoy the incredible easy sounding style of Doc Watson - and marvel at his genius and dexterity! Let his example show you how to play blues guitar! Learn blues guitar - more on my site http://www.play-blues-guitar.eu/how-t...
