Joe Carr – Western Swing Guitar Style

Joe Carr - Western Swing Guitar StyleДжо Карр: “Свинговый стиль гитары западного побережья”.

Ноты, табы, звуковые примеры, аккордовые диаграммы.

If you have ever heard the sound of rhythm guitar in a good western swing band, you may have wondered how the guitarist achieved that unique chordal sound.

While the song might be a simple one–playable with only two or three chords–the western swing guitarist changes chords every two beats, providing a driving and harmonically interesting background for the singers and instrumentalists.

This book is designed for intermediate players who have a basic understanding of open chords. It begins with study of the Texas fiddle back-up style and the chords used to enhance this music.

The chords and progressions explained in this book can be used in many types of music in addition to western swing and would serve as an excellent transition from open-string folk chords to more of a jazz approach.
