An intimate lesson from one of the legends of American rock, folk, and blues guitar.
Jorma Kaukonen's Acoustic Guitar 2 teaches more favorites from his personal repertoire and expands upon the techniques that make his arrangements so memorable. With these lessons on DVD, you'll learn runs, chord shapes, bass runs, right-hand picking, rhythmic figures, "back picking," double-time patterns, vibrato, harmonized scales, string bends, and much more. Songs include the folk/blues "I Know You Rider," Jorma's original "Water Song," and the perennial crowd-pleaser, "San Francisco Bay Blues."
Starting out as an acoustic fingerpicker, Kaukonen became a mainstay of the San Francisco rock scene in the mid-'60s when he joined The Jefferson Airplane. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 as a founding member of the band. He and bassist Jack Casady later formed Hot Tuna, which toured and recorded in both acoustic and electric configurations. Jorma has released more than two dozen albums, both solo and as a member of various ensembles. His live performances throughout the world continue to draw enthusiastic crowds of both electric and acoustic music fans.
