Guitar Center recently posted to YouTube some videos from Joe Bonamassa’s recent guitar clinic in Hollywood, CA. In the clinic, Joe discussed a variety of topics, including his influences, his time with Danny Gatton, his signature Gibson Les Paul, his amps, his slide playing, and his chosen style of music.
One of the things that I respect about Joe Bonamassa is the fact that he’s willing to share his knowledge and experience with others. Through his 20 years as a professional musician, Joe has seen a lot and learned a lot, and he’s got a lot of information to share.
One of my favorite clips from the clinic is his discussion of his slide technique and how he really got interested in slide when he heard Ry Cooder’s playing in the movie Crossroads. That was a somewhat cheesy movie, but the guitar playing was top notch. Check out Joe discussing his slide technique:
