Mary's Style

Mary is most often lumped in with blues players. However, she plays a wide variety of styles. She is a very proficient fingerstyle player. Mary utilizes many of the techniques that you will see in Jim Deeming's Phase 2 fingerstyle series.

Piedmont Style aka East Coast Blues

The Piedmont blues style, also known as East Coast blues, is characterized by a fingerstyle approach to playing. The thumb typically performs an alternating bass line while a syncopated chordal figure or melody line is played on the treble strings. This guitar style is reminiscent of ragtime and stride piano arrangements. A few other blues styles such as the Delta blues style often utilize a fingerstyle approach. However, the Piedmont style is separated from Delta blues due to its ragtime influences.

Many elements of the Piedmont style are also borrowed from the "frailing" or "clawhammer" style. Modern musicians also refer to this style as the "Carter Family" style. Other stylistic elements are borrowed from banjo players and string band music.

Note: For more information about the clawhammer style, please visit lesson 11 of Jim Deeming's Phase 2 Fingerstyle Guitar Series.


The heyday of the Piedmont style began around the mid 1920's and lasted to around the mid 1940's. During this time, the style dominated the local music scene. In 1940, Blind Boy Fuller's "Step It Up & Go" sold roughly 600,000 copies. After World War II, the Piedmont style began to lose commercial popularity as more modern styles of blues, and rock and roll began to develop. Musicians such as Josh White, Reverend Gary Davis, Brownie McGhee, and Sonny Terry worked to keep the Piedmont style alive throughout this period. Throughout the 50's and early 60's, Piedmont blues started gaining popularity among American folk music circles. During this time, the style shifted from a mainly dance based style enjoyed by African Americans to festival music enjoyed by mainly white audiences. Artists like Cephas & Wiggins, John Jackson, "Peg Leg Sam," Turner & Marvin Foddrell, and Henry Johnson frequently performed at these festivals. Today, players such as Mary Flower, Roy Book Binder, Doug McLeod, Jorma Kaukonen, and Paul Geremia have studied the techniques of the original Piedmont masters and help keep this American musical tradition alive and strong.

Martin D35Martin D35 replied

Mary is a great teacher as I have taken lessons here in New Jersey in a parlor sit in. Was the reason I decided to play blues guitar after hearing Mary play that night. I was excited to see her teaching here at Jam Play and look forward to seeing more from her as this is the tip of the ice berg. Welcome Mary and get working on another lesson we can't wait to see more from you.

Awesome guitar player Mary

kenmackenmac replied

Hi Mary, I have zero finger picking experience but have been playing the guitar for sometime. Would this course be a good place for me to begin? Thanks!

bluerex3bluerex3 replied

love this

orangeloverorangelover replied

Mary, I echo the commenter who said you are just what I've been looking for. I'm in for the entire series. Bless you for your generosity. So great to have a woman blues player as a role model.

selligjhselligjh replied

Exactly what I have been looking for to expand my finger style playing. Mary Flower is a very efficient teacher. I love how carefully and efficiently her hands move when she is playing.

hdflynnhdflynn replied

what kind of finger picks are you useing ? have never found any that work as well as yours seem too, have all ways used my finger nails

floorshakerfloorshaker replied

Hi Mary. Can't believe that I have missed your lessons. They are just what I have been looking for. I learned the basics for 15 months and then found, with respect to Steve and Jim, that the fingerstyle phase 2 lessons petered out and did not seem to have any clear direction to follow. I'm just back after a 6-month break and have discovered your lessons and now hope to keep it going again. Thanks. Chris. P.S. Just a thought not a criticism. Shouldn't your lessons be under `Fingerstyle' and not `Blues'. I certainly missed them because of this.

Hello Mary!, Hello Mary! Like to share a cool memory about Ernie Hawkins. Ernie was playing at an Arts Festival. The stage was set up in the middle of the street. so there were people walking past the stage with their funnel cakes and fare. Most everyone who came by stayed to listen. There was magic in the air but especially for one little boy about the age of 3, who became obviously entranced by Ernie and his music. The little boys mom was not so engaged. She was trying hard to get to somewhere and her little boy was captivated by the Music. Even Ernie said,” I think there is some magic going on.” Just a memory of the enchantment an artist can bring to an audience. I Love your Piedmont Blues Mary. t.

Welcome Mary! A short story about me, old and new rock was my first love with music. As a kid, I use to want to play guitar.. As an adult, even thou I still listen to it, I got bored with rock. I had given up my dream of learning the guitar. Then I came across blues one day on satellite radio. I got hooked and the blues is what actually got me to buy my first guitar; now I’m here with Jamplay working on my renewed dream to play guitar. Jamplay is where I have first saw and heard fingerstyle playing. I’m still working on phase 1 and I don’t know which to do in phase 2. To hear that you have a fingerstyle that fits blues.. Well, I’m very excited. Again, welcome Mary to Jamplay and I’m looking forward in learning from you.

Mary Flower

About Mary Flower View Full Biography Working in both the intricately syncopated Piedmont fingerpicking style and her own deeply bluesy lap-slide guitar, Mary has earned rave reviews from critics and audiences alike for her springwater-clear vocals and mastery of multiple guitar styles as well as her own compositions. Though she can create prewar blues and ragtime with the best of them, Mary draws on traditional, contemporary and original material to create something new: a sound uniquely her own that remains true to the timeless power of the blues.

Flower's elegant, funky and inventive playing on vintage guitars makes her one of a mere handful of women guitarists admired for their instrumental prowess. In 2000 and 2003 respectively, Mary placed in the top three at the National Fingerpicking Championship. Her career as an internationally known performer and teacher has spanned more than three decades.

A recent transplant to the Northwest, Mary cut her teeth on the Colorado music scene where she played with the likes of Katy Moffatt, Pat Donohue, the Mother Folkers and more. Mary took a detour in the 80s to raise a family, all the time woodshedding and performing locally.

Mary's CD Bywater Dance, recorded pre-Katrina in New Orleans for Yellow Dog Records, has garnered widespread acclaim. An award-winning player with seven solo cds and 5 instructional DVDs to her credit, Flower is in demand for festivals, concerts and guitar workshops on both sides of the Atlantic.

"Unassuming blues heroine Mary Flower proves one again that she's one of the nation's premier fingerstyle blues guitarists-- her technique is exceptional throughout, and in the end, serves the highest purpose, the music--unfailingly sweet, hot and sassy--every track on this album has something about it that will give you the shivers... This is one of the most satisfying albums of the year."
  - All Music Guide to Blues

"Her crisp, fluid fingerpicking sounds deceptively effortless, with flawlessly executed syncopation, the hallmark of a bouncing, upbeat Piedmont style. From casual listeners to devoted blues fans, Flower's music is accessible to everyone"
  - Blues Review

"With her immaculate guitar playing and warm contralto, Mary Flower finds the sweet spot between modern and rootsy in twelve tunes bred of back porches, parlors, street corners, juke joints and country of the best blues based singer songwriters working today."
  - Acoustic Guitar Magazine

"Mary is one of those rare artists who manages to create a tincture of the aged authentic with the freshly original."
  - Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine

"I feel like a 12 year old kid with a new guitar!"

I am 66 years young and I still got it! I would have never known this if it had not been for Jamplay! I feel like a 12 year old kid with a new guitar! Ha! I cannot express enough how great you're website is! It is for beginners and advanced pickers! I am an advanced picker and thought I had lost it but thanks to you all, I found it again! Even though I only play by ear, I have been a member a whopping whole two weeks now and have already got Brent's country shuffle and country blues down and of course with embellishments. Thank you all for your wonderful program!

"With Jamplay I can fit in a random session when I have time and I can go at my own pace"

I'm a fifty eight year old newbie who owns a guitar which has been sitting untouched in a corner for about seven years now. Last weekend I got inspired to pick it up and finally learn how to play after watching an amazing Spanish guitarist on TV. So, here I am. I'm starting at the beginning with Steve Eulberg and I couldn't be happier (except for the sore fingers :) Some day I'm going to play like Steve! I'm self employed with a hectic schedule. With Jamplay I can fit in a random session when I have time and I can go at my own pace, rewinding and replaying the videos until I get it. This is a very enjoyable diversion from my work yet I still feel like I'm accomplishing something worthwhile. Thanks a lot, Greg
