Product Overview


In this insightful Homespun video series, Jorma Kaukonen breaks down his fingerpicking style, lick by lick, with important tips on use of the slide, open tunings, right hand picking and innumerable other techniques.

Jorma Kaukonen's first musical influences were the fingerpicking blues of Blind Blake, Rev. Gary Davis, Big Bill Broonzy and other traditional players. From those inspirations, he built the acoustic guitar style that has made him a top guitarist and a legendary figure in the pop music world.

You'll learn four of Jorma's favorite pieces in detail, and in no time will be playing traditional tunes West Coast Blues and Hesitation Blues, as well as classic originals Crystal City and Embryonic Journey. Close-ups, split-screens and other techniques help you see and hear Jorma's powerful guitar technique, providing intriguing guitar study and invaluable insights into his approach to his music.

As a special bonus, Jorma and long-time Airplane/Hot Tuna partner Jack Casady demonstrate how two players, on bass and guitar, can collaborate to develop a song together.
