Watch the 83 Texas Rub Boogie online guitar lesson by Jimmy Vivino from Jimmy's Blues House: Boogie Down

1983 Texas Rub Shuffle Boogie

It could be seen to happen roughly every ten years, starting in the early 1940s with T-Bone Walker: An electric blues or rock guitar hero comes along and injects excitement and inspiration into the minds and hearts of guitarists. In the 1950s it was Chuck Berry (1926-2017); Eric Clapton in the 1960s; Jeff Beck in the 1970s (starting with Blow by Blow in 1976) and Stevie Ray Vaughan (1954-90) in the 1980s (1983).

SRV had remarkable chops, some of which were gained by copping licks from Buddy Guy, Lonnie Mack and even Jimi Hendrix. He was particularly drawn to the challenging concept of mixing rhythm and lead together as if two guitarists were playing. Some examples are Buddy Guy on "Mary Had a Little Lamb" (1968), Lonnie Mack playing "Chicken Pickin'" (1966) and Jimi Hendrix's cover of Earl King's "Come On (Part 1)" (1968). Another, among many, would be "Out in the Open" (1962) by the Texas legend Freddie King.

Harking back further to the 1950s, Vaughan undoubtedly heard Lightnin' Hopkins, who was a virtuoso of boogie guitar. Only a few of his many examples would include the startling "I Like to Boogie", "Annie's Boogie" and "New York Boogie", any or all of which could be the precursor to "Pride and Joy". Others include the eponymous "Lightnin's Boogie" as well as "Tap Dance Boogie", "Movin' Out Boogie", "Boogie Woogie Dance", "Grandma's Boogie" (!), "Early Mornin' Boogie" and "Bad Boogie".

Though some may disagree, no one yet has come along to take Vaughan's place as a bonafide, world wide guitar hero. Which is not to say it cannot happen, and we can only hope it will. Massive chops would certainly be a requirent, but just as important, a vision of what the guitar can be and where it can go.
