So, grab your guitar and jump on Jason Loughlin’s time machine – he’ll guide you through the history of country music across the fretboards of 34 country guitar masters in 50 Country Masters Licks You MUST Know.
Jazz vibraphonist Gary Burton and Larry Coryell collaborated on Duster back in ’67 evoking wider use of the term ‘jazz rock’ and stimulating broader appreciation for what was then a very fresh-sounding new genre that fused jazz and rock. Coryell can certainly be credited with attracting guitarists from both sides of the fence to the jazz rock scene but Miles Davis’ highly improvisational Bitches Brew with John McLaughlin (recorded in ’69) blew minds and made jazz rock history. Listen carefully and you can hear Miles snapping fingers to set tempos, assigning solos to players and whispering direction such as, “Keep it tight.”
Your buddy dragged you along that Saturday night. The stadium was packed and the crowd was growing restless as the stage lit up and the dude plugged in. The first few notes from his guitar sent a mad rush down your spine; the following notes arrested your ears and blew your mind for a solid hour. That was the night you first experienced an instrumental rock performance and swore, come hell or high water, you'd learn to play like that one day. Thanks to Neil Zaza, that day has come.
The rite of passage for members of the Satere-Mawe tribe of Brazil requires wearing a glove filled with bullet ants, whose sting is often compared to being shot by a gun. Thankfully, the rite of passage for contemporary bass players preserves both hands and is a lot more fun. If you're drawn to any modern style of groove-based music, you're required by law to assimilate the collective wisdom of classic soul, funk and R&B bass players whose timeless grooves power virtually every popular style of music today.
There's no hiding behind a slow blues. That's the bad news. The good news is you don't need fancy fretwork, blazing technique, nuclear effect racks, or a giant Marshall wall to pull it off either. All you need is soul, a pair of good ears and a versatile vocabulary of slow blues lines and moves. You bring the former to the table and Anthony Stauffer will deliver the latter in this collection of 50 Slow Blues Licks You MUST Know.
