Watch the Get Freed online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from 50 Progressive Blues Licks You MUST Know
The next three licks will focus on a player you may not have heard of. This player is Audley Freed. I first heard Audley in a band called Cry Of Love in the mid 90's. The band had great players on all instruments and their tunes were a mix on Hendrixy guitar rock combined with Paul Rodgers-esque vocals. Audley shines bright in this band. He also has become a popular sideman guitarist. He's played with The Black Crowes, Jakob Dylan, and the Dixie Chicks. He's incredibly well rounded and has become one of my favorite players.
This first lick is from his solo in Cry Of Love's tune called Peace Pipe. That song was a #1 Billboard hit in 1993! Wow, hard to imagine that there was this level of great guitar playing in a #1 hit. I miss those days! The lick is in the key of B and will be part 1 of 2. There are some great double stops and bends in this one.
Let's try it.
