Robert Johnson Lyrics - Preachin' Blues (Up Jumped The Devil)

“Preachin’ Blues (Up Jumped The Devil)” is one of my favourite Robert Johnson tunes (probably my favourite), it’s like a roller coaster ride, it jumps out at you and demands your attention. 1,040 more words

Blues Masters

Elmore James - Shake Your Moneymaker - Lyrics of sexual liberation.

Elmore was a genius on the slide guitar. This song ‘Shake Your Money Maker’ has all the exuberance of great Chicago Blues.

Heroes - Zoot Horn Rollo - the most amazing slide guitarist for Captain Beefheart!

I only saw him play twice but he blew my mind. That guitar sound was from a different planet.

I wish Zoot would come and play that long lunar note for me one more time. 42 more words


님 좀 짱인듯

내가 컨트리음악 쪽은 잘 몰라서 누군진 잘 모르겠는데

(좀 찾아보니 앨범낸 것도 많고, 그쪽 방면에서는 상당히 인지도가 높은 사람인듯)

Brad Paisley라는 가수+기타리스트가 공연 중에

자기 바로 앞에서 GoPro 비됴카메라로 동영상 찍는걸 보고

카메라를 집어서 그걸로 즉석 슬라이드 기타 솔로를 연주하셨다.

동영상 보면 걍 쩐다!!! 소리가 절로 나온다.

내가 무식해서 뉘신진 모르지만 진짜로 님 좀 짱인듯.
