Exclusive Video: Joe Bonamassa Performs "Further On Up The Road," Plus Free Download of "Slow Train"

Guitar World is pleased to present this exclusive video of Joe Bonamassa performing an acoustic version of "Further On Up The Road" at the Guitar Center on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles.

The Don Robey/Joe Veasey song, which was originally recorded in 1957 by Bobby "Blue" Bland, came to Bonamassa's attention when he heard Eric Clapton perform it several years ago. Clapton also performs the song with Robbie Robertson in The Band's film The Last Waltz.

Along with the exclusive video, Bonamassa is offering readers a free download of “Slow Train,” which is featured on his new DVD, Beacon Theatre – Live From New York. You can download it right here, right now.
