This volume of video guitar lessons examines the playing style of Johnny Winter. Born in 1944, Johnny played clarinet and ukulele before moving over to guitar, and by the time he was 15 he was one of the hottest guitar players in Texas, cutting sessions and playing live in Louisiana clubs. Initially inspired by Jimi Hendrix Andy Aledort's Kings of Blues and Rock Volume 1 on Data-DVD or Downloadand Cream to push the limits of modern blues into a form he referred to as progressive blues, Johnny's incendiary playing makes him one of the greatest and most influential blues and rock guitarists of all-time.

One of the earmarks of Johnny Winter's guitar style is his blazing speed and precision, as exemplified by tracks like "Be Careful With A Fool," "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl," "Memory Pain' and his slide guitar tour-de-force cover of Bob Dylan's "Highway 61." On both slide and standard guitar, Johnny has always displayed the ability to spin brilliantly constructed, virtuoso solos that feature his advanced technical skills; a complete study of his playing style will offer aspiring guitarists a lifetime of practice in pursuit of capturing just a taste of his sound and style.

Kings of Blues and Rock Volume 1: Play In the Style of Johnny WinterKings of Blues & Rock will impact your playing in two distinctly different but equally important ways: first, you will learn how to play guitar in the style of  Johnny Winter; more importantly, you will be able to take this information and use it to create your own style and sound in rock and blues guitar.

The playing styles of each artist is examined in a variety of musical settings designed around the artists' signature style and performances. All of the solo segments are played first at tempo, over practice rhythm tracks, and then presented slowly with thorough explanations. Practice rhythm tracks are provided so that you can practice the solo examples as presented and work on creating your own solo variations and ideas. Also discussed is the type of guitar and amp each artist favors, and the means by which they achieve their distinct, signature sound.
