Re: Do you use Blues Licks to solo?

I learned by listening and playing to Blues songs, like most of the Blues player once did. Clapton called it woodshedding, playing stock phrases over and over and doing variations. :music2: I do have some Blues books, too, but to be honest I don't use them much. Unfortunately I don't practice enough...

Re: Tutorials

Thanks Mike! The tutorial is about 20 years old, I wrote down what I learned and discovered while trying to tab the songs. There's no need nowadays to get all the books I mentioned, most of this stuff is on the net somewhere, including some great (and some really bad) tutorials on Youtube. Anyway, k...

Specially with this tune, as the goal was just to capture the sound of the guitar directly out from the amp.
Sure good gear, but your setting has a very "acoustic" (rather than electric) sound.

Thanks! :shy: It’s a lot of fun to add the backing instruments, and modern DAW software is making it easier, Oh, yes! So many possibilities to try, you can spend hours and hours to get what you want.

Re: Nothing but Blues

I enjoyed JLH from the first day I heard him - he brought me to the Blues with his album The Healer. I got all his records, I even play the same guitar, without pick, sure. :pray: To me he was the Blues in person. No fancy chords or notes, just his voice and his Sheraton. I'll try to visit his place...
