Watch the Freddie Thrills Me online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Blues Guitar 9: Advanced Lick Vocabulary
Freddie Thrills Me - Lick 39 is a video guitar lesson presented by Richard Van Bergen and is sourced from 50 Down Home Blues Licks You MUST Know.
This lick is in the style of Freddie King aka the Texas Cannonball. Freddie had a huge influence on upcoming blues guitarists in the 60's and 70's. Eric Clapton recorded King's instrumental hit 'Hideaway' on the famous Bluesbreakers album from 1966. Freddie was famous for blowin' everybody away with his killer tone. He played with finger-picks, which made him sound agressive and in-your-face. His Fender Quad Reverb always turned up to 10! We're in the key of D ,one of Freddie's favorites. This key - like C or C# - really fit Freddie's raw, high-pitched vocals.
