With enough hot licks to set the whole Lone Star state afire, this book details the solo styles of legendary guitarists, complete with essential stylistic details that make the music come alive. You get it all, from pioneers like T-Bone Walker, Freddie King, and Lightnin' Hopkins, through the next generation of innovators like Stevie Ray Vaughan, Billy Gibbons, and Johnny Winter, and on to latter-day explorers like Eric Johnson. You'll learn more than 100 licks in the authentic style of each player, each lick with its own mini-lesson, performed by the author at half and full tempo on the accompanying CD. Also features: a rundown of each player's guitars, amps and effects • lists of must-have tracks, albums and videos • revealing quotes from dozens of 6-string notables • essential tips on tone and style • insight-filled lessons.
