Let's listen to the American slide guitar wizard Mr. JUSTIN JOHNSON. International touring Nashville recording artist Justin Johnson has been hailed by Guitar World as a "must-see act", dubbed "The Wizard" for his mastery of stringed instruments, and recognized as Slidestock International Slide Guitar Champion. In response to worldwide demand for his educational offerings, Justin Johnson founded "Roots Music School" in Nashville, TN. Johnson took the stage to present his signature approach to Roots music to thousands of fans. In 2014, Justin Johnson recorded his debut double album, "Smoke & Mirrors," a celebration of the art, history, and traditions behind handmade roots instruments. His technique is studied and focused, but still achieves previously unaccomplished inimitable ingenuity. You may hear the guitar style here of the old masters, the sounds of a wailing blues guitar, the tones of an ancient arch-top Gibson, the perfect sounds coming from a rare National Resonator guitar made in the early 1920’s. He has been called an “American master". The guitar player can trace his musical influences as far back as you can go in American music, to Delta blues, gospel and slave field songs. For more than a decade, Johnson honed his craft so that now he can play just about anything with strings. For more than a decade, Johnson honed his craft so that now he can play just about anything with strings. For his latest album, he played more than 20 different instruments, ranging from cigar box guitar to banjo, mandolin, three and four string guitars and roots instruments like the one-string diddly bow. “I think with music the most important thing is being genuine with whatever you’re doing,” Johnson said.
