Eddie Taylor > Bad Boy Solo

Fellow Blues lovers we have something hot for you this week! The Eddie Taylor solo on Bad Boy is what we work on for this Lesson. It's simple and powerful and a great blues statement. It's a lot of fun to play and I suggest you use distortion to give it the real Eddie Taylor tone. We also play the last chorus and ending and I play 4 choruses of the song for you to practice to. Enjoy, Duke

Hi Terry, Welcome to Sonic Junction. My opnion is that most players try not play blues too on top of the beat. Most blues grooves should swing and to do that the groove has to be relaxed. Duke

I just saw this comment, I keep coming back to this Eddie Taylor lesson.  Big Bill Broonzy said something like this: imagine an Arab riding a horse (he never saw an Arab riding a horse but that was his analogy).  Some ride way up front on the saddle for the most speed.  Some ride sitting right on the saddle for the steadiest ride.  When you ride way back in the saddle is when you start swingin.

Very true -- and Vinny, love that visual of riding back in the saddle.

Hi from Australia ,

just joined the other day and love the site. Can't wait to get home from work and pick up my guitar . I am interested to know your views on tempo our drummer says it is what it is but I think it completely changes the feel of the song. Sometimes our band plays  too fast and I try to pull it back (or maybe I haven't got the chops) but then u lose that playing in the pocket thing......cheers terry
