Blues News from Portsmouth - August 2018 Views: 965


Welcome to August's Blues News.

** Videos And Acoustic Guitar Blog **

As mentioned in the last email, having bought a new video camera,
a Zoom Q2HD which built to record good audio, with a better camera
than my phone, I've resumed making both live gig videos and my
series of Acoustic Guitar Logs.

Here's a video of Burnt Ice's closing number of our gig at the
Golden Eagle In Southsea. We hope to return there in the Autumn.

I've been quite busy on the blog, here are new the episodes since
the last email.

o Andy Broad - How Do You Write A Song Like That?

Inspired by a question at a walker Broad gig last year, I
describe some of my composition process...

And the most recent:

o Andy Broad - A Jazz Blues With Just One Note

I explain how to play a jazz blues with a one note melody line,
and chords that move around the note. I teach this to
intermediate to advanced students, get in touch if interested.

As you can see I've been quite busy on the video front, hope you
enjoy them! If you do please do share them on you favoured social
media or even just let me know in a comment on the youtube video
page.
