A few years ago, I featured selected books and videos as “Book of the month”. I will pick books and/or DVDs I will recommend under the heading “Recommended”. (I will not put pressure on my self to pick a new each month).

Rory Block teach Robert JohnsonIn the first installment I have chosen to feature books and videos on the playing of the great bluesman Robert Johnson, under the title “Learning to play Robert Johnson“. There is a clear winner: Rory Block’s two DVDs “Rory Block Teaches the Guitar of Robert Johnson” and “Rory Block Teaches the Guitar of Robert Johnson Vol 2″. But you should also have Robert Johnson’s recordings, for instance “The Complete Recordings”.

Go to Learning to play Robert Johnson for more.

    Block is a great guitarist. And yes, own the Johnson recordings. I remember some 10 years ago I couldn’t stop listening to ‘From 4 Till Late.’ Something about the way it was performed kept me playing it in loop. Considering it was on tape, the loop part was sort of…manual.

    p.s. Looks like ‘James’ came by your blog too and left the exact same comment.

    Finally, I located the information I was searching for. I have been doing research on this subject, and for two days I keep finding sites that are supposed to have what I’m searching for, only to be discouraged with the lack of what I needed. I wish I would have found your web-site sooner! I had about 40% of what I was looking for and your website has that, and the rest of what I need to complete my research. Thank you and I will report back on how it goes!
