This DVD covers the licks, riffs and rhythmic patterns in the style of popular blues rock guitarists including Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Robin Trower, Joe Bonamassa, Van Halen, Eric Johnson, David Gilmour and many more. eMedia Music explains that: "Most guitar players spend more time learning to play “lead” guitar than they do working on their rhythm chops. Whether you’re a pro, a weekend warrior, or just jam with your buds, chances are you’ll play far more rhythm guitar than lead. You will have a much better chance of getting and keeping that gig if you can play great rhythm guitar".
