Watch the Cope With This online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from Essentials: Texas Blues Solos

I first heard Johnny Copland on a record he did with Albert Collins and Robert Cray called Showdown! which ultimately won a Grammy. The "Texas Twister" was often hailed as a singer more often than a guitarist, but you'll find that he was quite the lyrical player as I hope to show you in this example. Oh, and for you modern blues aficionados...his daughter is none other than Shemekia Copeland!
