Slow Blues for Piano




I'd like you to meet my friend dazza from England. He has a great website:

I first met him in the hearandplay forum. dazza came to the chatroom and wished me a Happy Birthday at 4:00 a.m.(His time!) What a friend! dazza is good with the blues.
Have a listen, if you like. By the way, he has a delightful accent!



Listen to dazza's tutorial on Slow Gospel Blues:



Then if you want to speed things up, hear dazza play Boogie Blues on HearandPlay.
Dazza, you rock!
