Watch the Triple Lightnin' online guitar lesson by David Hamburger from 30 Beginner Fingerstyle Blues Licks You MUST Know

I have to admit that, of the zillions of records Lightnin' Hopkins made, I'm pretty partial to the solo ones. If you want an immediate sense of the direct connection between the kind of pentatonic soloing we usually associate with electric blues, and the solo fingerstyle approach, you need go no further than Hopkins' Live At Newport, which also opens with a pretty groovy spoken introduction to the man by none other than Mike Bloomfield.
