The Legendary Guitar of James Burton
Jan 28 2014
James Burton is highly regarded in the industry with a roll call of famous names who have sought his contribution to their music: Randy Newman, Gram Parsons, and Emmylou Harris among them. On this DVD he covers vibrato, stringbending, pick & finger techniques, solo construction, slides steel effects and his trademark ‘chicken pickin” style. The result is a unique insight into the skills and techniques of the man Elvis Presley called ‘one of the finest guitar players I have ever met. Jeff Golub began his career as guitarist for rocker Billy Squier. He has recorded numerous solo CDs and is a highly valued session player and sideman, having worked with such artists as Peter Wolf, John Waite, Tina Turner, Vanessa Williams, and Rod Stewart.
