The Acoustic Guitar of Jorma Kaukonen (DVD 1)
Mar 02 2016
Jorma Kaukonen is one of the legends of rock guitar. He started out as an acoustic fingerpicker but became a mainstay of the San Francisco rock scene in the mid-’60s when he joined The Jefferson Airplane. Later, he and bassist Jack Casady formed Hot Tuna, which tours and records in both acoustic and electric configurations. Jorma has released more than two dozen albums, both solo and as a member of various ensembles. His live performances throughout the world continue to draw enthusiastic crowds of both electric and acoustic music fans.
Jorma Kaukonen teaches favorites from his personal repertoire and expands upon the techniques that make his arrangements so memorable. You’ll learn runs, chord shapes, bass runs, right-hand picking, rhythmic figures, “back picking,” double-time patterns, vibrato, harmonized scales, string bends and much more. Songs include the folk/blues “I Know You Rider,” Jorma’s original “Water Song,” and the perennial crowd-pleaser, “San Francisco Bay Blues.”
