Learn blues licks and phrases from a master.

John Hammond is regarded as one of the most prolific and outstanding solo acoustic blues guitarists on the scene today. His career has spanned more than four decades, and he has recorded and appeared on nearly 50 albums.

The in-depth interview taped in 1991 on the Instructional Guitar DVD gives you an inside glimpse of John's aspirations, his style and techniques that distinguish him as a unique solo blues guitarist. In four performances, John demonstrates and discusses his slide guitar technique, finger picking, string dampening, and his unique use of open tuning and time shifts. He also discusses his vocals and harmonica playing, accompanied by 6- or 12-string guitar, and demonstrates his techniques in live performances. His intense and seductive harmonica playing creates a mood with riveting vibrato, dynamic voicing, bending, and phrasing.

The guitar lessons on this DVD will keep you glued to your seat, as John reveals his influences, aspirations, and experience as a solo acoustic blues act. In the accompanying booklet, John teaches guitarists licks and phrases from the blues masters, both in standard notation and guitar tablature. 60 minutes.
