Over the past couple of weeks, legendary guitarist Robby Krieger has been keeping fans of the Doors entertained by soliciting suggestions for some guitar tutorials — and so far, the results have been illuminating and informative. It’s all part of a new series titled #LearnToPlayTheDoors, which is a fantastic idea with us all stuck indoors due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Robby Krieger has a new album coming out on August 14 titled The Ritual Begins at Sundown. The release date was pushed back due to the coronavirus, but the record was previewed recently with the psychedelic instrumental track “Slide Home”:

Additionally, Both Krieger and Densmore were featured in Rock Cellar in January discussing Ray Manzarek, Jim Morrison and the Doors’ 1970 — a crucial year in the band’s lauded history.
