Wow.But man, A flat?
What a guy - and thank you Mr. Cottage, for continuing my music education. I had no idea that Albert King was that large, nor that he played left handed, nor that he used a Flying V to produce that great music, and he was playing it upside down! Dang, if you keep this up I will be completely up to speed on music by the time I die. Thank you again.When I was young I used to travel through Indianola, Itta Bena, Clarksdale and other places in the cradle of the blues. My family's roots go deep in that Delta soil. What a fertile place...
Respect the seven second delay
Of the three Kings I place Albert first, not that it's a race or competition but... A.K. didn't use a pick either.
Plenty of java and Chesterfield Kings.
Have you ever noticed that when these blues immortals even just speak, there's a musicality that comes through them?
Man he's having such a good time playing in that clip!!It's totally crazy how the "three Kings" are standing pretty much exactly right behind every famous blues-based rock guitarist, especially the English Blues-bores of the 1960's. Even Hendrix pretty much mainlined Albert / B.B. / Freddie when he stretched out on a slow blues. Though to be sure he was somewhat more Kosmic about it.Looks like Albert's using his thumb, mostly. Wonder if he grew his thumbnail out long to use as a natural pick.I think Freddie used finger picks, don't know how many.
