Video: Hubert Sumlin Blues Guitar Lesson

Inspired by the passing of blues legend Hubert Sumlin on December 4, we here at Guitar World searched through our video archives and found this four-minute blues guitar lesson that Sumlin filmed at our NYC office several years ago.

As Sumlin says in the video, "This is what I do, man."

Enjoy this rare glimpse into the technique of someone who was a direct link to Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters.
