Impressive Range Covered

The range of topics covered here is impressive for a 60- minute lesson: rhythmic variation within a tune, octave walk-downs, diminished chords, using a slide to play chords as well as clean-sounding single-string licks, and various tunings used by Johnson—standard, dropped D, open E and open A.

Ainslie carefully shows how to integrate the bass patterns, percussive right hand work, and melodic fills that made Johnson one of the gods of acoustic blues.
