Here's a unique chance to take an intimate lesson with a true blues great and long time sideman to the legendary Howlin' Wolf, Hubert Sumlin.

Sumlin's sharp-edged solos and screaming riffs have graced recordings by some of the very best blues stars including Eric Clapton, Willie Dixon and Sunnyland Slim, and the longevity of his career with Howlin' Wolf means his distinctive tone is now as integral to the Wolf sound as the voice of the formidable bluesman himself. He has long been acknowledged as a vital influence by such groundbreaking guitar pioneers as Jimmy Page and Keith Richards, as well as by mavericks such as Zappa and Hendrix.

Introduced by Jimmy Vivino, and backed by a stellar rhythm section featuring The Band's Levon Helm with David Johnson and Michael Merritt, Hubert sheds light on his traditional, Mississippi-based fingerpicking blues style. Discover the licks that helped to define a musical era, slowed down and demonstrated in detail by the man himself. Sumlin breaks down some of Wolf's best tunes, including Smokestack Lightning, Forty Four and Hidden Charms. A special treat for blues lovers and learning guitarists everywhere!
