From Texas To The Delta is a mega-pack of acoustic blues guitar lessons covering all aspects of finger picking acoustic blues guitar hence the name. From the Mississippi Delta sounds of Robert Johnson to the happy complex ragtime guitar picking style of Blind Blake all styles are covered in great detail.

In addition to the legendary blues men such as Lightnin Hopkins Big Bill Broonzy and Robert Johnson this course explores some of the amazing guitar techniques of guys who are not exactly household names but nevertheless had an enormous impact on blues guitar development and modern music in general. Blues guitar men such as Scrapper Blackwell Pink Anderson and Floyd Council are unknown names unless you are a blues fan! Most people know that Pink Floyd took their group name from the latter two blues men but very few people have heard their music.
