Otis Rush Right Place Wrong Time, or the Cobra Sessions

The Beano album

A Freddie King Compilation

And then maybe Live at the Regal or Cook County.

And that’d do you for electric blues. Mostly. You don’t get Muddy’s or Earl Hooker’s slide or Magic Sam or Buddy Guy or ….

But it would be a good start.

Cheers,
Geoff

Pink Floyd, Wish You Were Here.

Great simple-sounding acoustic guitar work in both rhythm and lead.

Simple-sounding electric guitar work in both rhythm and lead.

So simple a beginner can learn passable versions.

So complex an experienced player can get frustrated re-learning how to ACTUALLY play it because it sounds so simple.

And of course the most advanced players can study the lead guitar tone on “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” for decades and still not get it right.

As great as Let It Bleed and Sticky Fingers are, if you can even somewhat nail down the various types and levels of funky Keef pulls out of his butt on Exile, you’d be set for life. This type of exercise is way beyond my level of ambition, but if I was gonna try it, Exile would be the Stones album I’d dive into, and might be the only album I’d do it with. It’s already my desert island album to listen to - suppose it could be to play as well… You might just have the discipline to pull it off Marc…
