Suggestions for moderately hard blues pieces or blues-influenced pieces?

Rap is music,far better than metal for example. id much rather hear about hoes and anal sex than dragons and supressed homosexuality.

Ehm.. Maybe AC/DC solo's? Not that hard, but certainly blues influenced!
btw, what can you play?

The Stumble is a good song since it's a guitar oriented instrumental.

Also check out some Roy Buchanan stuff, loads of hard techniques in there you could try to master and just generally a lot of good instrumental songs aswell.

Otherwise just learn delta/piedmont fingerpicked acoustic blues, can't get much harder than that, especially if you're normally an electric guitarist.

It's not that hard. I'm not quite good enough with muting though.
Not used to playing as aggressive as Stevie did
#21
haha thats funny i learnt most of it last night, like JilaX said its is pretty easy, just the speed that puts people off. I was just trying to find a song different then the usual delta blues ive been playing lately, so its kinda a coincidence that i learnt it and then this thread gets brought back up.

I can't, the main shuffle bits fine, but I can't do most of the leads, too fast for me

Hmm, yeah.

Some of the fast leads are a bit awkward to play. Nothing too bad though.

I'm just not that good at the fast stuff

Me neither, tbh,

Fastest is probably, around the solo in Heartbraker by Zeppelin, or so.

I wish I could play that fast


speed is my number one frustrating barrier, everyone who I've met can play fast not long after starting (comparitively), but I've always struggled with it


so I work on phrasing a lot, and practice picking about an hour a day

its working, but very VERY slowly

Stevie's version of "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)" from Couldn't Stand the Weather.

When playing the intro to rude mood ( the alternation of single notes and muted strings), do you use a picking motion to play(wrist) or do you use more of your arm. I find it difficult to play the shuffle that fast and make it sound as clear and distinct as SRV. After a few measures the rhythym becomes inconsistent and sloppy. I can play the other shuffles like Pride and Joy and Cold shot. I could even go faster than that, but at the 256 bpm (I think) of rude mood its quite difficult. Perhaps someone can explain their technique in performing this song as would really like to be able to play it. THANKS!

That's the hard part

Just watch the video live, only way to learn.

Led Zep's "Since I've been loving you" and "No Quarter".

In 30 years playing both now on average once a month, both are so inspiring, I never, never been able to play each twice the same.
