Hi, I've started learning guitar at an advanced age.I'm mainly self taught and the best thing i've discovered so far is open G tuning;Ted's book Delta Blues is a must for anyone interested in blues. I found it a great read and having read it twice I still dip into it regularly.Can white people play and understand the blues? I think so because many poor people suffer in life and although not to the extent of the afrrican americans in the southern states hardship, poverty and injustice exist in all societies.
