King, J.J. Cale, Albert King, Jesse Ed Davis, Amos Garrett, and others.
Jim provides a myriad of exercises and ideas: right hand pick-and-finger technique; bass-damping; pull-offs and hammer-ons for speed work; string-bending licks combined with with open strings; banjo-style rolls; shuffle and rockabilly rhythms; and much more.

Songs include "Big Foot", "Milk Cow Boogie", "Dead Thumb Blues", "Mojo", "Deepest Cut", "New Orleans Boogie", "Haunted House", "Bring It On Home To Me", and more.
