In this lesson I want to show you a Dickey Betts style guitar lick played in the style of Blue Sky. Dickey Betts is a master at blending scales together without sounding like that is what he is trying to do. It always sounds like just a beautiful melody with an improvisational quality to it. Dickey Betts is one of my favorite guitarists and learning how to play like him is a must if you truly want to master blues guitar.
In this weeks lesson I want to show you a cool Freddie King style blues guitar lick. Freddie King was a big influence on Eric Clapton and in my opinion was one of the greatest blues guitar players ever. His renditions of Have You Ever Loved a Woman are mind blowing to say the least. Armed with a 335 and just his fingers, Freddie delivers the goods like a blues man should.
In this Duane Allman slide guitar lesson, I want to show you a lick similar to what Duane might play over a Statesboro Blues style tune. Duane was the master of the electric slide and knew how to draw some amazing licks from minimal notes using a bottleneck. Less is more is the key to slide guitar in my opinion and Duane was the pioneer of modern electric slide playing.
