Finally got this last week c/o my good pals at Amazon.co.uk. These signature licks DVDs are pretty damn good for the price, especially if you're a cloth-eared struggling wannabe bluesman like me (I understand that the extremely rich and famous author, Steven King, is nowhere near as good a quitarist as he is a writer and still struggles with three note riffs like Pipeline even after decades of practising so, I don't feel so bad...).
However, it's the very dapper Duke Robillard on duty here and his style is completely different to that of his Hal Leonard Signature Licks colleague, Andy (Editor of US Guitar Magazine, Guitar World) Aledort and Mr Robillard doesn't go into the forensic note-for-note detail Mr. Aledort does on the accompanying BB King and Albert King Signature Licks discs but if you've been playing for a few years, know the Pentatonic Minor/Blues scales in all five positions on the guitar fretboard and can play a few simple Blues licks then the rewind and pause buttons will get a good workout on your DVD remote control.
In terms of quantity, you 'only' get four Freddie King classics (compared to the BB King disc's nine or ten and twelve or so on the Albert King volume) but they are brilliant (I know them well from a cheap compilation I had during the 1980s on vinyl) i.e.,
1) The Stumble (If you don't know this from the John Mayall Bluesbreakers w/Eric Clapton album, well..)
3) Slow Blues (?)
Once you've learned these songs you'll have a pretty good handle on the late, great Mr. King's style so yeah, go ahead an' buy it! Also, it's a shame this DVD doesn't have Tore Down but hey, you can't have everything in this life.
