When you hear someone say "Texas Blues Guitar," you may immediately think of Steve Ray and Jimmie Vaughn or maybe Freddie King. The invisible presence, buried deep in everyone of their guitar riffs, is the true king of Texas blues, Lightnin' Hopkins. Lightnin', who knew Blind Lemon Jefferson as a child, is Jimmie Vaughn's favorite guitarist. Offered here are all the basics, many of the secrets and tricks of Lightnin's deeply accomplished, deceptively simple acoustic Texas boogie guitar style. This lesson features rare video footage from the 1950's and 1960's of Lightnin' playing five tunes. Lightnin' plays the tune and then Ernie analyzes it lick by lick. This video presents a wonderful opportunity to go to the source of Texas blues and learn from the master who inspired generations of guitar heroes. A detailed tab/music instructional booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD.

    DVD Is good. Printed booklet is worthless. Don't match the instruction. Turnaround tabs are no good.

  • December 01, 2005 Ernie Hawkins is awesome

    This DVD is well done, and the tunes are excellent choices. Footage of Lightnin' is really neat. Ernie Hawkins is truly awesome as an acoustic country blues virtuoso player. My only (minor) complaint about this DVD is that the tablature in the accompanying booklet shows TAB notes in spaces between...

    seven lines, and I am used to TAB with notes placed on top of six lines.
