Boogie woogie music is one of the greatest influences on the blues, swing jazz and rock 'n' roll. The style is usually identified more with the piano than the guitar; however, boogie woogie actually seems to have originated with guitar players during the latter half of the 19th century in the rough “barrel houses” of the turpentine and lumber camps of the American South. Now with this book and video pack, trace the history of boogie woogie guitar with blues historian Dave Rubin and learn how to play the essential patterns that influenced generations of musicians. Features video lessons with demonstrations of every music example in the book!
