„Larry goes "back to the roots" and gets down "to the bare basics" in this video lesson that demonstrates the early influences of Larry's blues-jazz evolution. He begins with the blues guitar techniques of T-Bone Walker and then to the two "Kings" (B.B. and Albert). This is followed by the more sophisticated blues/jazz realm of Wes Montgomery. The lesson finishes with some non-guitar but equally important blues influences from the legendary Miles Davis. This video lesson defines the progressive advance of the blues from downhome to urban to the mystical.
