The Guitar of John Lee Hooker (Beginning-Intermediate)

taught by Tom Feldmann

John Lee Hooker recorded hundreds of songs throughout his career that spanned from the late 1940s until his death in 2001. Very few blues musicians reached the heights that Hooker achieved, among his many awards Hooker was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

John Lee Hookers trademark one chord blues style can be traced back to his Mississippi roots where he first learned to play guitar and although often described as a simple technique, the rhythm found in his playing is the bedrock by which all things blues, fingerstyle, rock, etc., is based upon.

John Lee Hooker played out of standard tuning, E position, and Spanish tuning, typically Open A, and nearly all his recorded works fall into either category. Breaking this collection into two parts Feldmann walks you through every aspect of Hookers playing style in both Standard and Spanish tuning. Youll even be treated to live video footage of Hooker performing the tunes taught out of standard tuning on electric, and more rare, acoustic guitar.

Whether you’re looking to learn Hookers songs, licks, or playing style youll find those elements in spades, plus most importantly youll improve your rhythmic technique which will benefit your own playing regardless of genre.
