Jorma Kaukonen played guitar in two classic rock bands of the 1960s and 70s, Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna!  His passion for the blues helped create his style, which was in such demand by up and coming players that Jorma started a fantasy guitar camp to teach his style.  The Fur Peace Ranch: Guitar Camp, located in Pomeroy, Ohio, provides workshops, on-line lessons and live concerts that often feature Jorma and many of his old rocking buddies.
