Take a tour of some great 1940s and 1950s American styles, as guitarist Duke Robillard (Roomful of Blues, The Pleasure Kings, Fabulous Thunderbirds) shares his amazing ability to meld blues, swing, and rock 'n' roll to form his unique uptown sound in this classic Hot Licks session. You'll learn: T-Bone Walker style; Charlie Christian style; Les Paul style; Blues-based swing; Chicago and Texas blues; double-stop moves; and much more!
“A guitarist's guitarist, prolific producer, and master of all things blues, Duke Robillard walks the tightrope between traditionalism and experimentation. He's a master of many styles who moves forward while maintaining a firm grounding in the past.” –Blues Revue
