yeah man;

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4OXrmxDp44 There's four, The clapton one is sick shit.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fG_P5TMt87k Again, clapton, but he's quite good really. this one is a bit more rock then blues though, but it's just awesome.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tWLw7nozO_U Here's some pretty awesome stuff by Stevie Ray Vaughn

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pm3zUQjG5no Some led zeppelin for a change.

also, i dont know what the poll has to do with it, but i'd go for a tele for blues.
#3
I hope this thread I serious, I'm not even going to vote on the poll, but listen to guys like bb king, Albert king, all the old school guys, it's hard to name a particular song but the solo I've been listening to a lot lately is "may I have a talk with you" by srv
#5
If you want elegant and beatifull phrasing, you can't go wrong with B.B. King. I can name "The thrill is gone" and "Three o'clock blues" but there is of course many more.
"Oh Pretty woman" by Gary Moore is also awesome.
I could go on and on.
#6
What makes you think this isn't serious?

The poll is irrelevant, accept it. Thanks for the reply's.

oh man, try listening to Texas flood by SRV for some slow blues orgasm.
If you're looking for something more uptempo try the Pride and Joy solo or the Honey Bee solo. Also SRV

Of course it is! What song you thinking about?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jH74e3Qo9k

Start at 5:00 and compare it the 1:30 mark on shadows play. Chord changes are practically identical and even some licks sound similar!

I like Rory, but i never really got into him as much as Clapton or Stevie Ray.

That's the kind of guitar playing we need to see more of. Totally agree.

thanks alky.

as for the poll, i have a tele and (very recently) a prs se custom. both are great for blues, for me the one i pick up at any particular time depends on the mood i'm in, so i can't say which is 'best'.

B.B. King's solos on Live at the Regal are pretty staple for most players - John Mayer and SRV rip them both - check out songs like Worry Worry, Sweet Little Angel, It's My Own Fault

Howling Wolf - Shake For Me, Spoonful

Spoonful are just about one of my favorite songs of all time - not related to the topic but stil......

Solo starts about five minutes in, but to really feel it you need to listen to the whole song.

There are so many orgasmic John Mayer solos out there, his phrasing (or what his phrasing used to be) is out of this world!!!

I'll link a couple of other great solos:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IEE2_RYyVYk

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZfSdsTsRNQ

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htobScsOB70

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1f6QZdw3fc (This might very well be one of the best solos of all time.)

I won't even mention SRV, just watch all SRV you can find; you won't be dissapointed!

Do yrself a favor, hunt down live Roy Buchanan, or check out Matt "guitar" murphy BEFORE you find Clapton if you want fiery blues. Find Albert king, Freddie King BEFORE bbking, who by the way is a Lowell Fulson clone. Frankly, there has been very insignificant improvements on the inventor of electric blues soloing, Tbone Walker- start with him so you know who everyone else is quoting, consciously or not. He was pals w Charlie Christian-so bang-thats your twin Romulus and Remus of Blues. When you listen to Albert King, picture him playing this stuff upside no less. You said "blues" so I'm holding you to it, not that Zep "since I've been loving you" ain't a gem, but you said blues so find like, early Otis Rush, Gatemouth Brown BEFORE bb, ec,srv. How can you have your pudding if you don't eat your meat!!?

I'm speechless... Incredible delta blues, thank you.

Yeah, Mississippi Fred McDowell is one of the best slide players i've heard. His strings in that video look massive too.

edit: i'd also say this next video of John Lee Hooker could be considered a great solo, since i think he would have improvised a lot of this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Zv7JXO5gss


edit2: why does someone always have to come into these threads and start hassling someone when they post a modern blues player.. seriously? Modern blues can be just as good, look at this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7vYLdqt68E

i respect everybody's entitlement to their views.

offensive.

I reported him for flaming anyway. It's that kind of arrogance and elitism that makes the blues forum less fun to be in.

I've seen similar posts around here by these people who seem to think they're blues experts , a know it all attitude. This attitude was the same stupidity that made people dislike muddy waters in the early days cus he started playing an electric guitar or the people who decided that Clapton can't be authentic enough because he's a white man ( because every white man is a king -_-? ). It's stupidity.

Yes. Yes, I am firmly lodged on John Mayers ****.
I'm not by any means offended, but what were you trying to achive by asking such a stupid rethorical question? Show everyone you don't like Mayer? First off, you are not alone, and secondly; I think you'll find that there are actually better ways to artculate your feelings than asking how deep Mayers **** is down my throat.

If you guys want to have a mature discussion, be my guest. If you want to flame and use inappropriate language to have that discussion, that's where I will be forced to step in. I trust you guys can make the right decision.

Flaming other users is against UG rules. If the reason you're here is to do that then go 'be a dick' elsewhere and leave the less childish users alone.

Im coming across Bonamossa for the first time, that track Sloe gin was beautiful. That solo man! It ****ing moved me.

You are what they call a “rhythm guitarist”. While it's not as glamorous as playing lead you can still get laid. Especially if you can sing and play.

Freddie King's solo in 'Have You Ever Loved A Woman' live in sweden 1973 (?) will deliver you.
#39
B.B. King's Guess Who especially a live version
and SRV's Life without you

the thing about blues artists is they do a lot of improv so if you listen to multiple live versions of the same song the solo could be completely different
#40
Gonna try and post the not stereotypical stuff (clapton, SRV, 3 kings, buddy guy...)

Some old stuff
Lightnin Hopkins - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8AY4zM7jB2c
everything he does seems so simple til u try to play it.

Not enough people talk about this song and its one of the alltime greatest live songs
Allman Brothers Band - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JToo3iwTOso


And then can never go wrong with R.L. Burnside...i can listen to this song all day...not so much a solo per sae but probably one of the all time best riffs ever.
Goin Down South - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hDCcN9qqbUA
