So everybody feel free to post your own videos--what songs mad an impact on you as a guitar player?
Not necessarily songs that made you want to play--although they can be included--but more songs that played a significant part in your advancement as a musician or that helped shape who you are as a guitar player...
I'll start with this one.
I learned chords--and always enjoyed (& still do) playing the rhythm guitar part in things)--but I still wanted to learn how to solo--primarily a blues style & a rock style.
I knew the pentatonic scales & other modes--but to me it always sounded like I was just playing notes--nothing clicked for me.
Then my teacher lent me a book with various transcribed solos--it had this song in it--in standard tuning--and I tried playing it--played the first 4 notes & it was like someone flicked on a light switch--I got it!
Something made sense & I was off from there.
I always hear licks I copped unconsciously from Albert King-but this song started it all...
Feel free to add your own--they won't all be to everybody's taste-but who knows what we might learn from this if we share.
