Albert King Blues Guitar Lesson

For tab and jam track visit www.activemelody.com – In this lesson we continue to explore the minor pentatonic scale (in the key of E), but we had a new try out (some new clarification) to the scale and learn how to play an Albert King style guitar solo. This lesson isn’t recommended for the absolute beginner, but if you’re honestly comfortable with playing lead, then you should be able to play the licks in this lesson

    “I like Eric Clapton’s vibrator the best…” Freudian slip?

    This is not the most hard thing to learn, but you make it really understandable for annyone so fantastic!

    how do you EQ your amp/guitar to get humbuckers to sound like that?!?

    I don’t know? What issue are you having with registration?

    “Eric Clapton’s vibrator…”! Priceless!

  12. activemelody says:

    I don’t reckon that one is more right than another – i’ve seen it done many different ways. I like Eric Clapton’s vibrator the best so I spent a lot of time studying what his hand does and tried to emulate his vibrato style. It’s really more of a free floating left hand that isn’t anchored. I reckon the best information is to pick the one that sounds the best to your ear and then watch videos of that artist to see how their hand moves to get that sound. :)

  13. iloveactivities6 says:

    i do notice as regards vibrato that a lot of guitarists use the left palm as sort of a fulcrum… yours moves more freely and i wonder is one more right than the other?

    This is as close as any player can hope to get to Alberts style on an orthodox guitar in standard tuning. Albert played a right handed guitar, left handed i.e. with the strings upside down. He also tuned below concert pitch, these factors made his tone and technique very idiosyncratic. Studying other players can help you learn your own voice, which should be your ultimate goal.

    @CollinsDenzel: You’re a boob. I hear Albert King’s sound in this guy’s licks. Are you telling me that I don’t? Very few can sound as fantastic as Albert, but you are absolutely incorrect to say “very few can play in his style”. In fact, very many blues player’s can play Albert’s style. In fact, I’ll venture to say most blues players are familiar with and can play Albert’s “style”.

    very clear teaching. i’m diggin it

    TWO WORDS: GREAT LESSON

  20. CollinsDenzel says:

    No fault but you are not playing Albert King licks. There may be repetition in his clarification but very few can play in his style.
    Take note to the recordings!

    Goddammit. I know you wanted to laugh when you said “G string”…

  23. nestosolo says:

    Like Albert King!
