[NAMM] Alfred: The Total Blues Keyboardist
Alfred Music Publishing, in collaboration with the National Guitar Workshop, releases a new method on learning to play blues keyboard titled The Total Blues Keyboardist, by David Gleason.
The Total Blues Keyboardist is a journey through the diverse world of blues keyboard playing. For beginners to advanced players, this book teaches blues theory, rhythm, and improvisation, and includes techniques and examples in all blues styles—from Delta, New Orleans, and Chicago blues to Memphis, gospel, jazz, soul, and funk blues.
The aspiring blues keyboardist will learn 8-bar, 12-bar, and 16-bar progressions, as well as classic intros, endings, and turnarounds. In addition, they'll discover the best approach for playing with other musicians or a full blues band, the publisher says. A CD demonstrating the examples in the book is included.
