Watch the Classic Texas Blues online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Blues Guitar Survival Guide - Lead
I am going for a classic Texas blues sound here in style of SRV and Albert King and as you can see I am really sticking to very few notes. I am trying to get the most out of the little box position I am in which is the upper 3 strings of what I call fingering number 2 of the minor pentatonic scale. This is all Albert King. It sounds a lot like SRV's version of Texas Flood which sounds a lot like Albert King's Blues Power. I am a huge fan of Stevie's and he was a gateway to the blues for me along with Zeppelin, but when I first heard Albert it was clear who influenced Stevie. It is always humbling to listen to someone like Albert King, the clarity and pure emotion that comes through in his playing is undeniable. As a player this is what I am striving for all the time.
