Celebrated blues fingerpicker, and winner of a National Heritage Fellowship Award, John Jackson brings the piedmont style to life in this tutorial DVD.
Jackson details the finer points of his fingerstyle technique, teaching songs from a wide-ranging repertoire, as well as reminiscing about the classic blues players that inspired his music. The songs in this lesson are a showcase for a host of turnarounds, runs up and down the neck, use of the slide and John's two-finger picking style. John gives a full performance of each song, before slowing it down and explaining the details.
This is a must-have DVD for anyone who wants a lesson with a great traditional blues artist.
