    Default B.B.

    I put this here, in the Guitar Shop,
    because he is truly a master of guitar.

    This period of B.B. is the stuff I'm into:

    That was a great to-the-point concise lesson on BB King!

    Nice!
    I’ve actually been working on “Everyday I have the blues”.
    Not necessarily trying to learn it note for note but rather trying to absorb some of B.B.’s phrasing and sense of time.
    Truly a master.

    The “Live at the Regal” album is top notch, beginning to end.
    I would have loved to be there.

    Yeah, I think you nailed it, his phrasing is incredible
    (punctuation , vibrato and knowing when to let a note
    breathe) Its all there!

    It’s actually really difficult to play along with the song because of it too!
    And yes, letting it breathe. It probably the hardest part for me. I come from a rock background and I easily can tend to overplay. I want to learn to lay back and let the song tell me what to play. Not easy.

    Yes, he was a master Bluesman. Finesse and feeling all the way to the bone.
