...I've just heard a "monster" blues player, who shall remain nameless, but knew every "lick" known to man ... and used them all in 12 bars .. I was left wondering what I heard ... and why -lol
I may not buy all the academia you mention, linguistic / metrics for instance, but it's a good reference to have. ... I'm not a purist, by any stretch. I was also surprised to hear Clapton describe the solo in Crossroads as wrong -lol- I guess he was a bit more the purist at the time
Anyway, just felt like saying GREAT JOB !
..now I'll go work on Old Love
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, keep on playing and share your progress!
Don't have so thank you but Gerd for his wonderfull web site and how generously he maintains this friendly forum!
Dr John wrote a song called "Everything I Do Gonna be Funky"
I eventualy can write "Everything I tab Gonna be Free"
I you ever need help for a lick, a chord progression or everything 'bout guitar 'n music, feel free to ask
