Watch the Walk Up Roy online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from 50 Progressive Blues Licks You MUST Know
Pushing the envelope of guitar playing is something that all legendary blues players have done. Roy Buchanan unfortunately gets overlooked when we talk about innovative guitarists. Roy definitely left his stamp on the blues as well as guitar playing in general.
For his groundbreaking licks, Buchanan received praise from John Lennon and even received an invitation to join the Rolling Stones. Many of his songs were emotional guitar ballads, others were funky rocky jams. We'll look at a lick he plays in his tune Tribute To Elmore James. This is a bluesy instrumental chock full of great blues playing.
