June 1, 2016

 

“I Found a Dream” was recorded by blues and jazz guitar legend Lonnie Johnson in the early 1950s. Johnson began recording in the 1920s and was one of the first guitarists to play lead single-note breaks in blues and jazz songs. In his Peghead Nation Blues Guitar course, Orville Johnson teaches fingerstyle blues, bottleneck, and blues lead, including how to play the kinds of licks he plays in the solo in this video. To learn blues guitar techniques from Orville, enroll in his Blues Guitar course on Peghead Nation today.
