The Birth of the Blues A Social and Musical History
Not at all
In this course, I’ll take you through the history of blues music starting from the very beginning up to the 1960s and beyond. I will explore all the social changes and how do they affect the blues. We will look into the life of the most talented musicians who made the history of the music. The blues has deep roots in American history, particularly African-American history. You will learn about the context and the content of blues songs, and you will be introduced to the technical elements of the Blues. So, let’s start our journey through the blues music!
