Watch the The Rev online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Essentials: Solo Electric Blues
The Rev is a 12 bar blues in C that is a mix of a number of my influences but mainly Peter Green and Billy Gibbons. Billy is a big fan of Peter's playing and was admittedly influenced by him and the British blues movement. I can't say enough good things about Billy Gibbons' guitar playing, and I am quite a fan. Many of you may only be familiar with ZZ Top's material from the 80's which was an MTV staple. Their earlier recordings are a must for any blues rock guitar player, and Billy's playing at that time was stellar. As with any bands over the years, remixed versions became popular. Make sure you get the latest versions as they put the original drum tracks back on, it makes a huge difference in sound.
