In this 1999 session, Son Seals provided an extraordinary personal lesson on how to play tough, no-nonsense blues guitar in a variety of rhythmic settings. An inspiring teacher along with being an awesome performer, Son was direct in his explanations as he was in his guitar playing. He put his heart into each song segment, which includes shuffles, slow blues, funk blues and minor blues, interjecting humorous anecdotes and practical playing advice for guitarists at all levels of experience. In addition, he was a master at up-tempo shuffles, demonstrating clearly how to pace and build a solo. By observing Son's technique in such an intimate setting, you'll see that the secret to his power and energy was in his fingers and not in excessive amplification. An easy-to-follow booklet is included that contains transcriptions of essential musical examples.
