Where else could you learn
these blues secrets?
I don't think you could even find a guitar teacher with half the blues experience or tunes under his belt that Jimmy has, so it's not really fair to compare buying these DVDs to getting a private teacher. But if you could find one, how much do you think they'd charge you to sit down with you and teach these 50 blues songs?
Or even worse... How much time would it take you to google each of these songs, find inaccurate tabs, watch live performances, and try to piece these arrangements together yourself? Your time is PRECIOUS. Certainly worth much more than the $3/hr (at best) that it would take to try to put this together for yourself.
Quite simply, this is hands down the easiest and fastest way to master a great repertoire of blues songs.
Get just these 4 new DVDs,
or pick up all 8 in the series and master
100 classic blues songs for CHEAP!
Jimmy's original Ultimate Blues Song Collection was a huge hit, because he taught 50 of the most important blues hits out there -- everything from Jimi's "Little Wing" to Stevie Ray Vaughan's "Pride and Joy", and many more. If you have that foundation, this new "2.0" DVD set eally rounds out your repertoire of blues, and adds in those extra spicy flavors like delta blues, slide blues, open tuning blues, and "sweet" major blues.
If you already have the first one, then you know it's solid stuff. Add this newest volume today to your personal library. If you don't have it, I recommend picking up the whole enchilada and i'll give you an incredible deal on the next page.
Right now you are at "The Crossroads".
You have two choices...
No, not the "Robert Johnson made a deal with the devil" crossroads but you are at a fork in the road. Here's your options:
1. Continue doing whatever you're doing now and in 3 months from now, you'll probably be about as good as you are right now. You'll look back and scratch your head, wondering why you're in a rut.
2. You can grab the Ultimate Blues Song Collection, dramatically improve your blues chops while mastering a whole bunch of sweet songs. You'll take your chordal chops, your soloing, and your overall blues power up about 3 levels to the "can't-wait-to-play-it-again" zone. You'll get dozens of fresh ideas and whole tunes you'll love to play over and over again. Your playing will never be "vanilla" again.
This is it, my friend... The Ultimate Blues Song Collection is your ticket to being able to call yourself an honest to goodness blues guitarist.

"Jimmy Dillon is one of the most creative and talented artists of our day. His songs hit home and his playing and vocals make you stand up and lean forward... it was an honor for me to work with him on this brilliant new CD, and there will be a lot of happy fans when they hear it!"- Chuck Leavell, Keyboardist for the Rolling Stones
"I love Jimmy's down-in-the-bucket blues..."- Carlos Santana
"Live at the Borderline in London, Dillon's performance was as honest as the day is long. On record he evidences an understanding of the virtues of simplicity. Shimmering bayou guitar, and a soulful seductive voice that pulls the listener in..."- MOJO Magazine
"On his record, Dillon stretches out musically, drawing from a wide pool of styles and influences. In the solid company of a gang of fellow travellers that include the Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton, Dillon shows his grit on the goosebump inducing slide numbers and explores new ground with latin grooves recorded on location south of the border." - Kevin Mathews, DJ-The LOOP, Chicago
"The Boy can play!"- John Lee Hooker
"Mr. Dillon Sir, All I can say is, damn, this is the instructional DVD that I have been waiting for. I just received your "Soul Of Acoustic Guitar" last week and I am lovin' every second of it. I have purchased many, many instructional guitar DVD's and your is by far the best. Your video is perfect! You start out slow on each lesson and explain your techniques clearly. Plus, you just have a really great style. I will, without a doubt, purchase any instructional DVD you put out in the future. What the hell took you so long?"
I look forward to more..." - Bart L. Black
