Lick Library, in their search to provide musicians with the best possible learning experience can announce the release of the definitive guide to playing American blues guitar with the launch of Steve Trovato’s American Blues in 6 Weeks, a series of DVD Guitar lessons.
With a DVD for each week, the new series features expert guitar tuition covering the great blues guitarists including BB King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Johnny Winter, Jimi Hendrix, Albert Collins and Albert King.
The guitar lessons are presented by the multi stylist guitar wizard Steve Trovato. Although a world class country guitarist, he is aptly nicknamed “The Great Chameleon” because of his ability to change colours musically from country to blues to jazz and rock. He teaches full time at the University of California, writes scores for TV and films including producing the music for “National Lampoon” as well as writing over 20 books about playing the guitar and performing with greats such as Robben Ford, Scott Henderson, Albert Lee and many more.
