A space to learn the “Desert Blues”, or Tuareg Guitar

21 Feb

As a guitar player with a taste for world music, I’ve been interested in Tuareg guitar styles for a little while now. As far as I know, this is the only blog out there for those interested in this very specific genre. I genuinely hope it can be a meeting place for those who don’t know anything about playing in the tichumaren style (like myself) and those who can teach the rest of us how it works. I will be learning as I go and posting what I know. If anyone wants to make a contribution, please contact me.

For those who haven’t heard the style before, I encourage you to take a listen to the following groups:
Tinariwen
Etran Finatawa
Toumast
Tamikrest
Bombino

There are other groups out there, but these are currently the most popular.

Thanks for dropping by!
