5.0 out of 5 stars At the feet of the master, 27 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Hot Licks - The Legendary Guitar Of James Burton [DVD] (DVD)
Now available on DVD, this wonderful 'Hot Licks' tutorial features the amazing guitar style of James Burton.

The disk kicks-off as James demonstrates some of his early, trade-mark riffs that graced the recordings and stage appearances of Dale Hawkins, Ricky Nelson and Elvis himself.

Throughout this presentation, Burton shows rhythms and leads as he composed and played them for a whole host of famous performers. The viewer gets the closest insight possible to this great man's amazing technique.

This is especially so thanks to the slow-motion option that is available. The visible performance can be slowed down whilst the pitch of the playing remains unaltered - very clever. (Warning: even slowed-down, Burton's picking and fingering techniques seem awesome.)

The accompanying booklet provides both tab and notation.

There is also the option to 'loop' the licks so that difficult passages - that's virtually all of them - can be viewed over and over without the need to re-set the player each time.

If you're looking to step up a level (or ten) with your country guitar playing, then this is the guy to aspire to. He's probably the best ever.
