That's going straight on the Favourites menu! B.B King = pure class, stunning tone and an unbelievably cool guy. I've been tryng to nail B.B's vibrato style for about 5 years, and I think this may help me get closer (still a damn long way off though!)

Thanks for posting that Mr 38th.

Great stuff.

Even when BB playes a single note, I get goose bumps all over my back. There's so much feel in it. Best blues player ever.

Don't even try to sound like BB.

Oh, and for god's sake don't play chords like BB. :lol:

I know what you mean Ratty-in this clip he just does that thing and the feel is just so real. I know it is dated to a lot of tastes  but BB gets me every time. Apparently he is as modest and humble in real life.Given his age, he is amazing.

BB is THE bluesman.

i thoroughly enjoyed that. i like the man.. i'm not a blues fan, but BB has that something. he's got the mojo! and knows how to put it in the music.


i wonder if he's been down to the crossroads
