Watch this video with black blues guitar player Albert King performing his song Born Under a Bad Sign. The arrangement includes a brass section wiith trumpets, trombones and saxophones. The clip has fair audio quality and presents one of the most important blues players with his band live on stage.
Albert King plays with a personal way of putting the strings of the guitar: he’s got the high e-string on the top (upside down) so he can play very cool bends. Listen to the blues guitar solos of Albert King whenever you can, he plays the traditional blues with a lot of soul, getting funky …
Blues musicians dont compare each other, they play the blues because they love it and they have something to say. They don’t want to be better than the other ones! Actually, this applies to almost all musicians. However, there are a few out there who pretend to be better than the rest, well being better than the rest of the guitar players for example still is a personal and therefor subjective point of view. Instead, musicians know that if they have something to say, they will be heard by their fellow musicians.
