The Story
Back by popular demand, Warren Haynes teaches the country blues of Son House and Robert Johnson, different slides for different sounds, open tuning licks in G and E tunings, using vibrato to correct pitch, damping for a cleaner sound, Muddy Water's standard tuning style, switching off between the slide and fingers, 'call and response' improvisation and so much more. As an extra bonus, many of the examples are illustrated with Warren's band, Gov't Mule! Don't miss this opportunity for yet another blues guitar 'tour de force' with the great Warren Haynes!

All exercises are transcribed in the accompanying 32-page book, corresponding to examples numbers on the screen. And of course, all right and left hand techniques are shown close-up and with special split screen effects, so you can closely observe and learn all the subtleties the top players are known for!

Warren Haynes has become one of America's most important blues and rock guitarists. His work with The Allman Brothers Band and hid trio, Gov't Mule has brought him acclaim as both a slide and lead guitarist. He won the Guitar Player Magazine's Readers Poll for 'Best Slide Guitarist' in 1995, and his latest Gov't Mule release has received critical accolades.

Additional Facts
Guitarist Warren Haynes played with several bands and aritsts before getting his big break with Dickey Betts and the Allman Brothers. Haynes' songwriting, singing and playing helped make "Seven Turns", "Shades Of Two Worlds" and "An Evening With The Allman Brothers Band", the Brothers' most critically acclaimed albums in years. Many critics give Haynes credit for putting the fire back in the Allman Brothers Band.

After dropping out of The Allman Brothers Band in 1997 to pursue his side project (Gov't Mule) on a full-time basis, Haynes, along with bassist Allen Woody and drummer Matt Abts, released their third album in 1998, "Dose", as a follow-up to their highly successful 1996 debut album and the 1996 recording "Live At Roseland Ballroom".
