Jim Weider: Rockabilly Guitar 2
Rock 'n' roll was born in the 1950s when rhythm and blues collided with country music to form rockablility. This exciting new music's earliest heroes played a brand new instrument - the electric guitar. In this powerful DVD, the licks and techniques of two of the greatest early rock guitarists - Chuck Berry and Eddie Cochran - are slowed down and brought up close for learning guitarists.
This DVD is guaranteed to improve your playing skills and expand your knowledge of the guitar. Playing on original, vintage guitars and amps to perfectly capture the sounds of the 50s and 60s, Jim Weider teaches, in detail, dozens of great licks, rhythm patterns, picking techniques, solos, scales, exercises and other invaluable playing innovations that made these two rock pioneers the legends they are today. Jim's encyclopedic knowledge of the early rockers and their instruments makes this fascinating DVD a real winner!
To bring these great sounds up to date, The Band's Rick Danko and Levon Helm, along with guitarist Chris Zaloom, demonstrate the grooves and provide rhythm tracks for you to jam along with.
