Hey, I'm new to the Blues/Jazz section of the forum and have been wondering who do you think has the best phrasing techniques? I don't have a lot of blues music, but I'm always interested to try some new stuff. So who do you think is the best to learn other the obvious choices (Clapton, Hendrix, Page, Mayer, Vaughn, Allman Brothers).
I like fluid licks that make a sentenc instead of a bunch of random licks thrown together.
Run!

SRV had some fantastic phrasing, IMO, and you also have to look at the man he got many of those licks from, Albert King. BB King is worth a listen, too. I enjoy clapton's music, but never thought he was one of the best at phrasing, thats just my opinion. One of the best, though, is Buddy Guy.

I mean in Kyle's case, it is in the best interest of mankind that he impregnate anything that looks at him funny...

When Albert King was on form, his guitar spoke. When he wasn't, however, it sounded like arse.

Albert Collins' phrasing was pretty cool, as was Freddie King's.
Don't be derivative. Explore...

When he's on form and not shredding, I've always found Gary Moore's phrasing to be the best around. Maybe moreso in his rock stuff, like 'Empty Rooms' and 'The Loner'... but 'Still Got The Blues', 'I Loved Another Woman' and 'Stop Messing Around' are pretty good.
