Jug Band Music for Fingerstyle Guitar

Regular price $29.95

Tax included.

Jug band music is close to my heart. In 1964 with my friends Steve Katz, John Sebastian, Maria Muldaur, Josh Rifkin, Peter Siegel and Bob Gurland we formed the Even Dozen Jug Band. Hopefully some of the fun and joy that I found in jug band music has been transposed to the fingerstyle arrangements in this lesson.

Two of the most popular and well recorded jug bands in the 1920s were Cannon's Jug Stompers and The Memphis Jug Band. In this lesson I have arranged some of their songs for fingerstyle guitar. I have also included the wonderful Shine On Harvest Moon which fits perfectly in to the jug band tradition. They're fun songs to play and sing. You'll probably recognize some of the titles and melodies from the recordings of the Rooftop Singers, Grateful Dead and Lovin' Spoonful.

A detailed tab/music booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD. Each tune is taught phrase by phrase and played slowly on a split-screen. As well, a Bonus Audio section features original recordings of the tunes taught. 117 minutes.

Titles include: Stealin' Stealin', Going To Germany, K.C. Moan, Mississippi River Waltz, Walk Right In and Shine On Harvest Moon
