Meet Willie Dixon the blues guitarist at Guitar Control. Learn to plauy guitar by watching his famous albums. The choice of material on this album is exceptional and many Rock and Blues musicians have covered the arrangements on this album. Some of the standout cuts include Snatch it back and Hold it, Ships on the Ocean (Based on Willie Dixon’s Just to Be With you ), Good Morning Little Schoolgirl, Chitlin Con Carne (Written by Jazz Blues guitarist Kenny Burrell), and the title track. This is a very interesting album sonically also because of Buddy Guy’s use of an organ amplifier for his guitar which gives the guitar a sort of watery effect

Chicago Bluesman Willie Dixon was perhaps best known for his songwriting. He wrote or co-wrote over 500 songs and his songs have been recorded by some of the best-known blues musicians of his era, including Muddy Waters, Magic Sam, Howlin' Wolf, Little Walter and Sonny Boy Williamson.
