(first of all, i'd like to state that i didn't know where to put this, i was also thinking general instruction and technique but thought i might get more luck here) Ok, I've got my first recording session coming up - if it counts as I'm only being paid in beer It's a three song demo in the genre of folk blues. Only problem is, what the heck is folk blues? I need suggestions on artists i should listen to and stuff i should work on. I don't think that I need to read for this recording, but i can handle typical eighth note progessions if it is. I know my 12 bar blues but I don't think these songs follow that pattern. The chords for one of the songs is something like A, F#, C As for recordings to listen to, I've searched for mp3's under folk blues and come up with only bluegrass stuff... is that right? Any suggestions or tips you can give me is much appreciated.
