This video tutorial will teach you to play blues on an electric guitar like Joe Bonamassa. Joe Bonamassa grew up with his father, where they lived in New York. His father played and sold guitars, so Joe had a small Chiquita guitar in his hands by the tender age of four. He soaked up every influence he could from the likes of SRV, Jimmy Page, Paul Kossoff and Eric Clapton, then moved to a full-size model at the age of seven and was performing locally by the age of ten.

Since the year 2000, he has recorded, incredibly, nine solo albums which have further established him as a very capable player with a great voice.

These examples are played on the bridge pickup with a dollop of distortion, though a little less than a full-on rock player.
