Desert Blues Drone Training

Lesson description:Precision of the picking hand--that's what it's all about! This lesson started as a "best practices for 12-string jangle productivity" idea, but steadily morphed into a desert blues/Mdou Moctar/Tinariwen/Ali Farka Touré thing.

The internal process went like this:

  • ...hrmmm lemme pick an open position chord....aha...Am.
  • ...let's get some drone tones going....check!
  • ...I need some fills......where's the blues scale?...aha there it is...
  • sorta like West Africa!
