Blues 101

Every lick that snaps from the E string of an electric guitar owes a debt to the blues. The blues [...]gave the Rolling Stones their attitude and brought soul to the Beatles pop.

In this video, Boston University's Victor Coelho delivers a primer on blues history and churns out a few licks of his own. The associate provost for undergraduate education and College of Fine Arts professor of musicology is both a musicologist and a performer. His expertise ranges from 16th- and 17th-century Italian music to popular music.
