A Bit Of Blues History
Blues, secular folk music, was heavily influenced by the African Americans originally in the South, south of the Mason and Dixon Line.
The Blues was recognized as a musical style toward the end of the 19th Century. It eventually evolved into Jazz around the 1920s.
In the 1960s blues changed to a simpler but expressive form of music that greatly influenced the development of popular music in the US.
The Blues is still alive and well in the US music scene. But its popularity has shifted from Blues and Jazz to Rock and Roll, R&B, Rock, Funk, and Disco.
The peak for traditional Blues was between the 40’s – 70’s, some artists breaking out of the traditional form.
Blues is not a dead musical style because interesting music is still coming from that arena. It also influences other music forms such as Jazz and even Country. Acoustic Guitar Skills are also important in Blues Guitar Music

As with the other courses, TrueFire’s objective is to get all students playing as quickly as possible, with no music theory or boring exercises. Some of you may question the “no music theory,” but music theory is a stand-alone course if you choose to learn to read music or music theory. It is not mandatory for guitar lessons.
