LESSON ONE: BEGINNINGS - THE ROOTS OF ELECTRIC BLUES - Electric blues stylists grew out of the guitar picking of versatile single-string soloists like Lonnie Johnson and Scrapper Blackwell and the country bluesmen, turned electric, like Lightnin' Hopkins and John Lee Hooker. Fred slows down and analyzes the licks, scales and techniques of these players.

LESSON TWO: ELECTRIC SLIDE GUITAR - Using several sample tunes, Fred teaches how to play electric slide guitar in the styles of the blues masters, the players who inspired Johnny Winter, The Allman Brothers, Ron Wood and the rest of today's rock slide guitarists. Several techniques are covered as you learn the techniques of Tampa Red (open D), Muddy Waters (open G), Elmore James (open E) and Robert Nighthawk (standard tuning) and how to apply these techniques to rock progressions.

LESSON THREE: EARLY BLUES/ROCK: CHUCK BERRY and BO DIDDLEY - These two guitarists defined rock guitar in their day. The licks and styles they used, derived from blues players, are still an important part of every rock guitarist's repertoire.
