Play and Understand Robert Johnson
If you are one of the many frustrated bluesmen who have considered selling your soul to the devil in exchange for the ability to play like Robert Johnson, stop right there! Starlicks offers you a better option: Robert Johnson’s Guitar Techniques, a video instruction tape by Johnson transcriber Scott Ainslie that will help you not only play Johnson’s guitar parts, but understand them as well.
Born in Rochester NY in 1952, Scott Ainslie has been playing music on something since he was three years old. A guitarist since 1967 with powerful appreciation for and apprenticeships with elder black and white musicians in different musical traditions, Ainslie carries a portion of them forward in his own traditional blues performances and songwriting.
