: Learn to Play the Blues Guitar and Harmonica

John Hammond's passion and commitment to his music have inspired blues lovers throughout the world for more than forty years. Now guitarists (and harmonica players) can learn, up close, how John plays the songs, licks, grooves and soulful solos that make up his dynamic blues style.

John breaks down nearly a dozen songs from his vast repertoire, showing the scales, chord shapes, licks and turnarounds that define the country blues genre. As he shares his musical ideas and techniques, he discusses his musical mentors and recounts colorful anecdotes that illustrate his long career as a touring blues musician.

You'll learn innumerable ways to improve your own blues playing, including the use of the slide and how to integrate the harp into your songs. The whole lesson is enhanced by John's heartfelt performances of the songs he is teaching, which include Just Your Fool, Phonograph Blues, Hellhound on My Trail, Terraplane Blues, Come On in My Kitchen, Untrue Blues, Honest I Do, Drop Down Mama, Jitterbug Swing, Come to Find Out and Slick Crown Vic.

This program is available for viewing either with a Roots Channel subscription or as a standalone purchase.
