How can you not love that guy?
if you check out late 50s-late 70s BB, he knows a lot more than most people suppose.
indeed. i posted this (&, really, the whole thing is worth watching), cuz some one in another thread claimed that King didn't know anything beyond to basic pentatonic scale . . . and . . . no.
Interesting. I never studied BB much but the first two chords are fave's of mine.
That first chord he shows is one of my favorites too. Often called "?m7b5". I use it often rather than a 9th. It has some dissonance in it, if you inverted it somehow it wouldn't sound right.
The third chord I often use as a Cmaj7 alternate. (G6)
Live in Japan is pretty phenomenal. Also Spotlight on Lucille and Live in Kansas City.
i like the live in africa vids, but i wish they'd taped the shows that became together for the first time ESPECIALLY "i like to live the love"
I don't really understand what you say.
I have a 42 minute film of that live in Africa show.
As many bluesman he might not have a full understanding of the harmony but he uses his ears and study very closely T Bone Walker, Lonnie Johnson and Charlie Christian. As long as it sounds good we're good to go
i meant the recording session for the bb king and bobby bland album
Yeah, great sound.
That 9 chord is a rootless voicing: 3 b7 9 5
Same notes as the (rooted) m7b5: 1 b5 b7 b3
So in the key of F, C9 no root = Em7b5
Same idea with that G6 and Cmaj7 no root.
It's really endless. We'll never run out of things to learn and 'own,' I think!
Matt Schofield is heavily influenced by BB. You can hear it i how upbeat and bright (emotionally) his music is, plus a lot of similar moves and voicings.
(edited for typos)
Yeah, that's the weird thing about that ?m7b5 chord, there's no root in it, it's a bit dissonant like a maj7 chord which has the root and a flat together, but they are separated enough to give that "feel".!!
yeah, i would love to see the audience sing-along part of "I like to live the love"
