New LICK OF THE WEEK
November 19, 2013

Albert King
Can't You See What You're Doing to Me

This week’s lick is short, but it’s a good exercise in developing control in your string bends. It is taken from Albert King’s Stax recording, The Best of Albert King (1986 Stax Records/Fantasy DIDX-564). Truly a great selection of Albert’s music on record.

John Lee Hooker starts out the week with his classic tune, "Serves Me Right to Suffer." Just Mr. Hooker and his guitar.
BB King plays Sweden in 1974. In the first two minutes he is interviewed and at about 1:20 the playing starts, and he really plays. He shows the T-Bone Walker influence, and much, much more. Beautiful playing, great band.
