    I love BB. He's in my top 5 blues guitarists for sure. To me, look up "blues lead guitar" in the dictionary and it should say, see the...

    I've learned a few BB licks and when I play them, they sound like...... me. I may be a hack but at least I'm a hack with his own voice....

    Here's an MP3 I created ten years or so ago - just backing tracks, no solo. There's no doubt better out there, but here it is. Might...

    Interesting, I’ve been working and practicing this song for the last few weeks. I don’t think you can emulate BB king unless you play it...
