I enjoyed and would like to capture SRV sound, his timing and tone is hard to capture.
Anything off Blow by Blow, Woodchopper's Ball (Alvin Lee's version), or I'm Beginning to See the Light (Harry James Orchestra).
I'll take any of 'em and be very, very happy to be able to play it!
On the guitar, or the...
All I can piece together is that while it's in D, he's tuned open E (no open strings). I can play pretty much every riff individually, but to hold it together beginning to end, no way. I just can't do it. Other songs mentioned in this thread, Sultans, Wind Cries Mary, Money, ... no problem, and I do a ton of slide stuff like Just Got Paid, Heard It On The X, One Way Out, You Shook Me, etc., and don't have any trouble at all. A lot of things are a matter of just putting the proper riffs in order, but Statesboro continues to totally confound me, lol.
I'm torn between these three:
Horizons - Genesis (Steve Hackett)
Clap - Yes (Steve Howe)
UK - In The Dead of Night; Holdsworth's solos are just so... fluid
That is freaking hilarious. Incidentally, I just bought a pair of Addidas Gazelles recently, although I don't wear one without the other!
Twin Les Pauls, neither of which are plugged in, makes for a great hangout scene on the front porch.
It's television man, you know like when Elvis sings, and the band comes in during a movie! Connie Smith's guitar player Rick Wright did a heck of a job on EB&D. I say did, because when I looked him up, I found to my dismay he was killed in a car crash in 2016. Man that guy could play.
Wind Cries Mary is my choice. I keep trying it failing only to try again months later and fail more. One day of these days it's gonna click.
Right now I'm trying my hand at Johnny B Goode which is proving very difficult to play at the right speed. Practice practice practice!
I'd like to learn the solo in this song
The other guitar player with Jerry is my friend Kenny Penny.
He’s a Dallas area guy who played with Jerry Reed, Dottie West and many other biggun’s.
He’s equally brilliant on guitar and fiddle, and currently plays with Johnny Rodriguez.
I get to do a coupla gigs a month with him.
Anyways, though they were just miming on Hee Haw, them boys could play!
King Crimson - Fracture
How's about some lessons for 50 bucks an hour and you put that gun down!
I do Skype . (only kidding.. unless you're seriously interested and then maybe I'm serious hahaha, I got a couple of his tricks up my sleeves)
Songs that intimidate me are usually ones with a lot of alternate picking 16th notes that jump strings and change keys a lot.
That stuff is tricky.
Donna Lee? At tempo?
I'd love to be able to nail that perfectly.
I've seen bits and pieces of the two of them together, and yes they could play.
Satch Boogie, maybe I can get there one day on practice alone but magic would be cool.
Mark Knopfler/Dire Straits - "Sultans Of Swing".
yeah, that was a cool set. At first I was like, "wow, Jerry's playing a les paul?" and then his playing sounded a little like a lap steel or something not les paul-ish, that's when I saw no patch cord.
He certainly is. Very eclectic. If I were a rich man I'd do Skype lessons with him.
Eric Haugen is great too, like an American version of Adrian.
Hey, thanks Mr Scallywag - I will look him up too!
Stairway to heaven.
Just got done watching this Tommy Emmanuel video. Excuse me, I have to go downstairs and throw all my guitars in the garbage.
What a player! Just unbelievable.
