Well I had started that about the age of twelve... see my mother had a guitar, my father made her a present of a guitar, and he taught her a few chords, but I first started on a little outfit I made with a cigar box... I made a guitar with a cigar box, had peg keys, bored holes in the head, and I had uh... the strings graduated from fishing twine down on to thread - Johnny St. Cyr, guitarist for the Jelly Roll Morton's Red Hot Peppers in an interview with Alan Lomax on how he learned to play guitar

Lonnie Johnson lesson
« on: September 28, 2008, 08:54:45 AM »
Hi all,

Since Ari's lesson dvd on Lonnie Johnson is still in the works (for about 5 years I'm told ;D) I thought I'd do a little introduction lesson. 
My introduction to Lonnie Johnson's playing came with a small article by Bob Bater in the British Guitar Magazine somewhere in the early 80ies.  It contained only the tab for the intro of "Away Down in the Alley", but that was enough to get me started.  Since then I always enjoyed playing in his style and I'm surprised that so few people play in it as well.  I don't think it's that hard, you'll only need a little push to get you through the "signature lick" I guess  :)
Happy pickin',
