Jorma's trademark techniques elucidated with special visual treatments.

Jorma Kaukonen's first musical influences were the fingerpicking blues of Blind Blake, Rev. Gary Davis, Big Bill Broonzy, and other traditional players. From those inspirations, he built the acoustic guitar style that has made him a top guitarist and a legendary figure in the pop music world.

In this insightful lesson, Jorma breaks down his fingerpicking style, lick by lick, with important tips on use of the slide, open tunings, right hand picking, and innumerable other techniques . You'll learn four of Jorma's favorite pieces in detail, and in no time will be playing traditional tunes on guitar including "West Coast Blues" and "Hesitation Blues," as well as classic originals "Crystal City" and "Embryonic Journey." Close-ups, split-screens and other techniques help you see and hear Jorma's powerful guitar playing technique, providing intriguing guitar study and invaluable insights into his approach to his music.

As a special bonus, Jorma and longtime Airplane/Hot Tuna partner Jack Cassidy demonstrate how two musicians on bass and guitar can collaborate to develop songs.
