As one of the most emulated blues players of our time, Robben Ford's impeccable soloing techniques, phrasing and tone have been the subject of several books and videos, but for the first time, Robben brings his smooth and tasty rhythm playing to the forefront in this DVD. He explains and demonstrates dozens of blues rhythm concepts and techniques from 12-bar shuffle blues rhythms to mixing in jazz chords to blues comping. Robben also takes you through several of his tunes showing his chord voicings, rhythms, and right-hand picking/finger techniques. Robben also answers questions about double-stops, his guitars, recording, and road gear. Also includes a 39-page printable PDF with examples and transcriptions. Robben has been offering master class clinics for several years to a very select and limited number of students. This DVD allows guitarists everywhere to be a part of this unique experience.

Comments about Hal Leonard The Robben Ford Clinic - The Art of Blues Rhythm Guitar DVD:
I first noticed Robben Ford in the mid '70s when he was playing with George Harrison. I've followed his carrer ever since. I've seen him play with Eric Clapton, the Yellow Jackets, Joni Mitchell and his own bands. This guy is incredible. He has a natural born talent to play blues guitar. He has a lot to teach us and he does it very well. He was originally a sax player so his phrasing is like a singer/sax player. I highly recommend this DVD. You'll learn a lot form this master guitarist.
