Check out this clip from the new DVD:
Tasteful and soulful.
10 minutes long....if your can't say in less than 4 minutes your wanking in my book.
This is why I didn't dig the blues until I heard Freddie King.
I think it's good what he's doing for the blues.
Also, great tone and pretty good playing too! :AOK
Yeah, cuz FK never played extended jams...
Don't confuse King's album cuts (from an era when nearly every song was limited to three minutes) with what King did live.
If it was anyone besides JM playing these licks folks here would be eating it up. You can't deny that he is one of a very few people bringing the blues to the younger generations, and that counts or a lot too.
My respect for Freddie's contributions to the genre only increases my ability to appreciate the contributions of others.
I really like John Mayer as a guitar player. But in a pure blues setting he is very derivative. I actually like the more melodic blues playing he incorporates into his pop music better.
He can obviously play.......Love the tones he gets and really like some of his phrasing.........but a little too much wanking on that number......
not bad. one day he might be able to play like me:moon
LOL! Good one!
I heard this on XM today and much as I wanted to , I couldn't hate it.
That was up until the point where he tried to sing, then I shut it off.
He has a great point though, nice to know that there is still and appreciative audience out there in 2007. Got to give him credit for playing blues too!
I think it's fantastic that he can bring the blues to a new audience that normally isn't exposed to that kind of music. Great touch, tone, and playing on that track, too.
Nice! Always enjoy listening to him.
I really don't get all the hate he gets on TGP for no apparent reason.
He has done far more with his life than anyone on TGP (based on what I've seen/read/heard/know)...
I wish I had his chops, though that doesn't seem to be the issue that people have with JM. I love the guy! My favourite 'new' player, for sure!
Also, the DVD is killer! Just got it and finished watching it today. Amazing mixing job, too.
I gotta hand it to anyone that can keep a packed house of young, mostly female, fans riveted by 10 minutes of blues in 2007. No easy feat.
I agree. Don't watch this video and operate any heavy machinery.........
I dig the suit though..........
Was that his signature Two Rock amp in that video? Great tone!!
Who's he banging now? Thats about the only thing he does that impresses me............
