Modern blues master Joe Bonamassa joins TG in issue 195 as a guest tutor, and gives you the lowdown on his signature techniques while showing you some cool blues licks to play yourself.
The series starts with pentatonic patterns and develops with position shifting ideas and advice on hybrid picking.
For a taster of his playing, TG’s Music Editor Chris Bird reviews Bonamassa’s latest DVD release, ‘Live From The Albert Hall’ here...
'Live From The Royal Albert Hall' - DVD
**** 4 stars
Live DVD footage from up and coming blues rock superstar guitarist’s sell-out gig at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall in May 2009.
The gig marks a landmark point in Bonamassa’s career, being joined onstage by veteran harmonica player Paul Jones (of Manfred Mann) and trading licks with guitar legend Eric Clapton. Joe cements his status as one of the world’s most authentic young blues and rock guitarists. The double DVD set also includes an interview and behind the scenes footage with Bonamassa.
In five words!
Joe Bonamassa comes of age
