    Electric Blues (Hot Guitar Lick Blues)

    New Music Category.
    This place has been pretty dead lately!
    Thought maybe we need a new thread or two.
    I love Electric Blues.
    Hot Electric Guitar blues with some Rock influence.
    Please no Country, and please go easy on the Delta Style blues.
    Lots of hot electric blues music available for this category.
    Please post your favorite hot lick video.
    I will start it off with this one!

    Here's one with Joe Bonamassa and Singer Beth Hart, Doing an Old Otis Redding Song.
    Not the best recording quality, but I really dig the Blues guitar solo a little over 3 minutes in.
    Check it out.
    Big Joe can play for me anytime.

    OK all cool stuff... here's a quick clip I did with my blues band a few weeks ago at a local club in Denver...





    Everybody should post some of their own playing too... just for the fun of it.

    Love that crap! Reminds me of a tape a buddy gave me when he got out of the navy. It was from around '65. He picked it up over in the Pacific somewhere. Real bluesy. Before he started cascading 20 fuzz boxes and all that craziness that came later, though it all had it's place. Thanks!

    being the studio version, he has fun with overdubs and digs out some unusual licks.

    Good stuff guys.
    Keep it coming.
    How about some English blues.
    John Mayall and the blues breakers with Mick Taylor.
    I like the guitar in this.
    Like the Yard Byrds, so Many great Musicians went through the Blues Breakers, from time to time.

    Damn, that is a good live recording from 1968! I had to track down the source and find more songs from that show- it looks like it was from Wolfgang's Vault:

    John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers | Fillmore Auditorium | San Francisco, CA | Feb 9, 1968 - wolfgangsvault.com

    I saw John Mayall with Mick Taylor in SF in 1968 but it wasn't at the Fillmore and I don't remember them having horns. (It was some kind of one-off blues festival with someone like Albert King headlining the show- yes, my memory is like a steel trap! ) Mick Taylor was only 19- he was planted in his own corner of the stage and hardly moved- but there were incredible sounds coming out of his guitar!

    It kinda blows me away knowing that the guitarist on that recording was a kid who just turned 19...

    Just an Instrumental, but good blues.
    Really, from the Super Session.
    If you Haven't Heard the whole "Super Session" album, I recommend downloading and listening to it!
    Mike Bloomfield, Al Kooper, and Stephen Stills.

    Here is Mike doing an extended version of a slow blues like "Really" with Barry Goldberg from "Two Jews Blues." Barry is a real bluesman who plays organ very well- no need to add horns to keep you from falling asleep during his solos...

    P.S. For more Bloomfield here are YouTube "audios" of the full albums of Super Session and the Electric Flag's first album.

    Electric Flag (A Long Time Comin'):

    I couldn't find the full album for "East-West" from Paul Butterfield but here are some of the individual tracks:

    Work Song:

    Here is the live version of "I Got A Mind To Give Up Livin'" recorded in April 1996 at the Unicorn Coffee House in Boston with an amazing solo from Mike starting about 3 minutes into the song:

    I wonder what Amp Mike B. Used?
    He always gets a tone, You don't hear often.
    Also when he is on the bridge P/U, it is very sharp and trebbly.
    Guess he was playing real PAFs?

    Live he always wanted to use a pair of Twin Reverbs although he did switch to Acoustic SS amps in 1969 because they were louder. He retired from the rock scene in the early 70's and pretty much invented "Americana", which was made up of various sources of roots music (blues, country, gospel, New Orleans, etc.) When I saw him in the mid-70's he was playing a strat plugged into a Fender tweed amp.

    For the recordings with Paul Butterfield he used a tele and a gold top LP with P-90s, which he traded with Dan Erlewhine for his trademark '59 Sunburst which is what he played on his well-known recordings for Columbia. In the mid 70's a musician friend asked about his LP and learned that the neck had been broken off twice- right at the heel. The second time Mike didn't bother to have it repaired- he just put the neck back on with electrical tape. Very hard to read that without breaking out in tears. I read that it was eventually lost to a club owner in Canada (I think Mike had skipped out on a gig leaving the guitar behind and the owner kept it as compensation.)

    Lots of information about him on this site:

    *Mike Bloomfield Biography

    And this other site has a very extensive listing of his gigs and his recordings:

    When I first heard "Texas Flood" on SRV's first album it really blew me away because I had never ever heard anyone capturing the sound of Albert King (there were plenty of great blues guitarists but none that I knew of who could get that AK tone.)

    P.S. I didn't realize that the BBS software here at the Music Electronics Forum could insert widgets to play videos in the posts here like Facebook does (one of the few features I really like in Facebook.) I hate the whole concept behind Facebook (let's get rich from our users' data!) and I would like to see a BBS-style forum which would support an easy migration from FB. Most of the people I know there would hate to have to start all over again on another website, building up a network of friends again. So how about a new website which would optionally send invites to all of your FB friends when you joined? My other big complaint about FB is that it is such a bandwidth hog trying to keep the wandering attention span of the post-Nintendo generations. There are pictures and avatars that pop up left and right as you try to navigate through a page, I suppose to keep the visitor entertained. I just want the content there (the discussions and PMs) without all of the damned bells and whistles- like it is here at the Musical Electronics Forum. Although I know it would be hard to write the BBS software that could handle millions of users...

    It's real easy to insert and embed a Youtube video.
    At Youtube, you play your video.
    Right click and copy the video url.
    Then here at the reply, click on the insert video symbol and insert the saved video url.
    I always preview the post, to make sure the vid is there.
    Any Robert Cray Fans out there.
    I have most of his CDs.

    That is what I gathered looking at the text of your post. I've been inserting YouTubeos with the URL tag so they just appear as links. I learned something today- thanks!

    Heard this today on Sirius Radio and it still sounds great.
    I think it was the summer of 1990 when this came out.
    Gary Moore and his hot guitar blew me away.

    I first heard "Still Got The Blues" when I was driving around in a company van with just a radio in 1990. I was tuned to the Top 40/Classic Rock station and I thought it was Carlos Santana with a new vocalist.
    After getting the album I picked up the "Gary Moore and the Midnight Blues Band" VHS tape which was recorded live with Albert King and Albert Collins. Great stuff!

    Ever notice how white blues artists almost always wear their own distinctive hats? In most cases I would say "zany hats" but SRV's hat is just plain cool!

I found a whole shitload of FM shows from 1969 on DIME but not that one, the details of which are spelled out here:

    Fleetwood Mac 06/23/1969

    I did find what purports to be a live version of Albatross filmed at BBS in 1970 for the Old Grey Whistle Test. It sounds almost identical to the studio version but I think I do hear some slight variations in phrasing. In any case it is interesting to see how the band played the songs (the guitar positions, etc.) That is one of those songs that sounds so perfect that I can't imagine anyone playing it live but it looks like they did...



    Thanks for the posting the link!

    Steve Ahola

    P.S. I did find a dl of the Aberdeen show in mp3 format: w*.f*.com/file/cca6cdc/n/FMacMeanOldWorld.z*
    (Send me a PM if you can't figure out the code.) BTW the song titles are mangled up.

    EDIT One review of "Mean Old World" suggested that it was a collection of various BBC recordings. Although most of the songs sound like they were recorded at the same time there were some that had piano and one or two that sounded like they were vinyl-sourced. My guess is that it was basically what was recorded for broadcast on Radio Aberdeen with a few other BBC recordings mixed in.

    Here's one of my favorite guitarist.
    Johnny winter.
    I love the guitar tones he gets in this song.
    Wonder what Amp he's using?
    Can't really tell what's behind him?
    Maybe a Vox.
