Another "Blind test" question

...no, Anders, the title has got nothing to do with Stevie Wonder and a syringe.

Rather, it's related to the proposed category with me playing guitar parts from famous songs. Another question I guess should be added is this: How many decades is it realistic to operate with? Or rather, how far back in time is it meaningful to go? Would y'all recognize Beatles or Hendrix songs, for example? Or Presley tunes?

Inquiring minds planning which songs to learn want to know.........

If you have some beatles songs, then the points will be for me (he he).
Hendrix, no problem neither.
The King, not so sure but whatever

So no Beatles or Hendrix songs is what you're saying?

;-)

Anders said...

Which of the Kings do you mean, pigeon. Albert, Freddie or BB?

Off topic, but I think it's a travesty that Freddie King is mentioned with Albert King.

At least from a guitar-technical point of view.

Besides, AK used a flying V, so he was halfway to a decent axe. If only it had been a jackson King V and not a Gibbo...

WHADDAYAMEAN!
Who's the superior guitar player, Freddie or Albert? Any why?

Somehow I don't think the Jackson King V was available in 1958. If it had been, I'm sure Albert would have opted for the Jackson...

Not Carol King?

Actually, I was thinking about Albert Collins compared to Albert King. Albert Collins was the Tele-wielding slide-dude with the capo on the 9th fret, right?

He's the dude I don't think deserve to be compared to AK. I've actually got no idea how Freddie King sounds....

What, open tuning and capo isn't your favorite? But mr. Collins didn't use much slide, though. I'll give him that.
