Part One: The Texas Sound

 

Many young players have asked me how I'm able to reproduce or generally simulate the sounds of such blues guitar legends as B.B.King, Buddy Guy,Albert Collins, John Lee Hooker or Stevie Ray Vaughan. As I've learned by watching and listening to these and countless other great blues guitarists, I may be able to shed some light on a few of the mysteries surrounding the execution of this uniquely American art form.

 

Since I am most knowledgable of modern electric guitar, this will be our primary focus. Future topics will cover modern player techniques, axes and equipment, blues tunings, string gauges, fingering techniques, string bending, new amplifier combinations, and whatever topics that may be of interest.

 

I welcome any input, suggestions, comments, etc. If you note an inaccuracy in anything you read, please let me know. All of us are continually learning.
