If you dig deep into the origins of the blues, you’ll wind up in Africa. Dig a little
deeper and you’ll discover many ‘World Music’ influences from northern Africa. Desert
Blues, Gnawa, Rai, Chaabi, Sharqi, and Soufi music are some of the styles that are strongly
connected with the North African music culture and the Sahara desert.
Jan Wouter Oostenrijk’s 30 Desert Blues Licks You Must Know celebrates these diverse styles
with this very unique collection of licks. ”I've collected 30 of what I consider to be
essential licks, rhythms, and concepts in this overview. We'll dig into the beautiful
Moroccan Rai music, Sahara Desert Blues, Chaabi rhythms, the Hegaz mode, Saba Zamzam mode, groovy camel rock, and Gnawa. I'll even show you the origin of Surf music and how new wave music was also influenced by these world styles. In the end, you’ll have the building
blocks to create a typical Sahara Desert Blues.”
Jan Wouter Oostenrijk is a Dutch guitar player that has spent the better part of his life
researching and playing African inspired music. He's traveled and toured extensively
throughout North Africa and has integrated the sounds and concepts he collected into the
modern Fusion bands he now performs in. We’re very proud to welcome Jan to the family with
his first TrueFire course, 30 Desert Blues Licks You Must Know!
Jan will explain and demonstrate all of the key concepts and approaches along the way.
You’ll get standard notation and tabs for each of the licks. Plus, Jan includes all of the
rhythm tracks for you to work with on your own. In addition, you’ll be able to loop or slow
down any of the videos so that you can work with the lessons at your own pace.
