Ainslie is the author of “Robert Johnson/At The Crossroads”——a book of transcriptions, history and annotated lyrics from Johnson’s famous solo blues recordings of 1936-37. He is an experienced teacher and has an instructional DVD on Johnson’s music on Starlicks Master Sessions. He wrote and taped video instruction for his article on playing like Robert Johnson for the November, 2009 issue of Acoustic Guitar magazine, available at

Ainslie is also a seasoned Piedmont and Ragtime Blues performer whose work includes the music of Blind Blake, Rev. Gary Davis, Muddy Waters, David ‘Honeyboy’ Edwards, and the Virginia Bluesman John Jackson--a friend and mentor met in 1967.

A master teacher, Ainslie will lead guitarists through a portion of Blues-related guitar technique. Content is always driven by who is being taught, but sections on the ins and outs of slide playing, finger picking technique, major open tunings, and the special open bass chord transpositions that pepper any solo acoustic blues guitar performance will be covered in addition to requested material.

You are welcome to bring an audio recording device. Paper and pencil are recommended. To reserve your place, please send an email to
