The official Johnny Winter app! Learn to play like Johnny through music, animation, and video.
I love my iPad app! It contains the most detailed breakdown of my playing style that I have ever seen.
Learn all about the life and music of Johnny Winter through an illustrated mini-book and audio clips of Johnny sharing thoughts and experiences. Then learn some of Winter's blues licks, riffs, turnarounds, and solos played by the master himself. Explore Johnny's blues vocabulary on standard electric, slide, and National Steel guitar. Learn the licks through animated sheet music that features high-quality audio and text commentary for each one. You can slow down the music (without changing its pitch) to ¾ or ½ speeds to help you learn it. Loop over any portion of a piece or an entire piece.
All of the audio licks are recorded by Johnny Winter himself, with Paul Nelson on rhythm guitar and Dave Rubin on bass.
Also features instructional videos showing Johnny demonstrating his signature styles and techniques. These guitar parts are then broken down and taught note-by-note by master blues teacher Al Ek.
Included videos cover Johnny's Equipment, Elmore James’ style and a Texas Shuffle. (Over 57 minutes.)
You can also stream selected YouTube videos featuring Johnny or members of his band. Note: Any charges for the purchase of this app are levied by G-Men Productions and not by YouTube. YouTube does not charge users for accessing videos on YouTube.
