SO, you`ve completed the Jamorama course and it`s time to get down to business and waltz through that White Stripes audition like the neck-burning, fret-ripping master of neo-vintage guitar coolness you have now become and give Jack White a good old run for his money.

If you like the tastes of the White Stripes, and let`s face it, if you dont you must be mad, then these are the kind of guitars you oughta be on the lookout for! These airlines look like beautiful candy humbug surfboards designed with the best tonal flavours in mind. Yum.
Slim Harpo delivers the languid swamp blues Louisiana sound with as little effort as it apparently takes here on King Bee which was later covered by almost everybody including Englishmen The Pink Floyd
