  1. It’s not all about numbers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLkc9pzlP4E
  2. I remember Chuck Berry performing on stage, but I am not sure if folks referred to his stage act as a “Duck Walk”. Chuck Berry surely started his career listening to the great Blues players. I read somewhere that Chuck Berry may have learned his trade from the blues players, but also helped create “Rock and Roll” which didn’t help the Blues. Some claim he was the father of “Rock and Roll”. I’ll go with Marty McFly.😎 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqS76TFCCYs
  3. Oops, I meant Folsom Prison Blues. I am confused about the use of the capo in the Hal Leonard play along volume 115 sheet music. The Vocals appears to be in the key of F, but the guitar part is in the key of E. Why even mention a capo it’s not used. I might have figured it out when I pulled the the sheet music up on line. It seems to indicate that the capo is only for the rhythm guitar. By the way Cash settled the song issue for $75,000. sheet music https://www.musicnotes.com/sheetmusic/mtd.asp?ppn=MN0116776 Crescent City Blues video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3M3Igjnbhs Luther Perkins lesson https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rGr3uwSANU
  4. B B kings “Just Like Women” The second measure symbol looks like a vibrato, but I’am guessing it’s a single note tremolo. When you can play this song “you have arrived”,but working on it might make you go “to the corner for a malted”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8m8CEMeIc0s

  6. I’ve seen players do a “long slide”, usually only one way with no specific start or end point, but I can’t say that I’ve seen a slide identified as a glissando in sheet music until now. I was looking at the music for “Five Long Years” by Eddie Boyd as preformed by Eric Clapton. A “steady gliss” from the 14th fret to the 1st fret and back to the 19th then to the 7th. This song is about 12 pages long and how Clapton or any player remembers all those notes is beyond me. It does appear in the performance linked below that he has varied a little from the sheet. I would be surprised if he ever played it the same way twice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKTdd7awuMU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_JB-juueVk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FlEo8WUClNk
  7. Rock Me Baby, not much to this song, but almost every bar has a vibrato. It has a 12 bar intro before the verse and the lead lines follow the I IV V chords. Time to use your looper pedal and a clean tone. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OK_AwCjK0Ak https://www.musicnotes.com/sheetmusic/mtd.asp?ppn=MN0039671 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kY57juZoLqs You can also find this song in Hal Leonard's guitar play along volume 100 featuring BB King.
  8. Would like to have a lesson from Freddie King, but I guess I’ll settle for Eric Clapton. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMDPpzt60gY Three good resources for this song 1. Hal Leonard , Eric Clapton play along vol.41 2. Griff Hamlin Blues Guitar Unleashed lesson 6 covers the rhythm. Y3. Justin Guitar https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2b3zRD8IjA
  9. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i30t7r9_PvQ you might check out some of his other video’s. His one one the caged system where it all starts on the E shape was interesting.

  11. Anyone using a Truetone 1 spot and a 24 volt pedal? update What I learned is that I needed a voltage doubler (sold by Truetone) placed between the 1 spot and the pedal. On the 1 spot you switch one of the outlet from 9 volt to 12. Some vintage pedals you need and additional connecting wire. I bought pedals over the years, long before I was ready to use them and consequently didn’t ever look at their voltage requirements. The re-issue 24v Memory Man was one of the pedals I had stored away. I was surprised to see some vintage MM pedals with asking prices of $700 to $800. What they actually get might be a different story.

  15. I was surprised the other day while listening to George Benson talk about his guitar playing.He said he doesn’t play on his fingertips, therefore has never had any calluses.He didn’t say in some circumstances he uses his finger pads he indicated he always uses them. So, it seems someone can become a legendary Jazz guitarist using only their finger pads.
