Rags and Minstrel Show Songs of Rev. Gary Davis 2-DVD Set

Product Description

Rev. Gary Davis had an enormous repertoire that spanned from gospel to blues, rags to folk tunes and old minstrel show songs. In this double DVD lesson Ernie Hawkins presents some of Rev. Davis's most requested rags and minstrel tunes. These vary from Sally Where'd You Get Your Liquor From (made popular by Jorma Kaukonen and Hot Tuna) to the complex dance rhythms of Buck Dance and Twelve Sticks to Devil's Dream, an instrumental played in the Key of F. These are arrangements that will challenge any guitarists. A detailed tab/music instructional booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD. Ernie Hawkins teaches each tune phrase by phrase and carefully shows you the right hand picking as well as the left hand fingerings that were unique to Rev. Davis's approach. You will be able to easily follow the instruction with the tab/music booklet. Also featured are split screen segments where each section is played slowly and you can study the movements of each hand. As a bonus we have included various audio performances of Rev. Davis playing each song. Now Available:
