In this tutorial we're going to study the guitar tone and playing style of the legendary Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top.

Gibbons' guitar playing style and music across many decades has inspired players to learn about the blues of the past, bring those traditions to the present and expand on them into the future!

We'll study Gibbons' style by breaking it down into several key factors, learn what makes it special, then learn to play some licks in his style.

This tutorial will cover his gear and tone over the years, his rhythm playing, his approach to lead guitar, the 80s-era Eliminator style, and his take on slide guitar. So let's dive on in and check it out!
