WOW! Have I got an exciting post today! This is my good friend J.T.Blue, world famous blues guitarist. Oh yes.
I love the blues. Specifically guitar based blues. There is something about blues music, I cant describe it, maybe it is the feeling and heart that goes into the playing, and the creativity behind it. I love improvisations. Its like doodling or painting from the heart, except instead of a pencil a Blues guitarist uses his guitar. Obviously.
Blues has its roots in African-American communities of the USA, and according to Wikipedia, had some influence from Scottish/Irish Ballads amongst manner other things. I never knew that, how interesting! The most amazing thing about blues music is, it has laid the foundations for most modern music we listen to now. Awesome!
And now the exciting part! Dont believe JT is real? Listen to him play here! I managed to record his warm up practicing, on my phone wink wink. This is rare material, hence the excitement ;)
JT warm up 1 JT warm up 2
(His guitar was out of tune BTW... dont say I said anything...)
Ill leave todays post with JT's hero, Jimi Hendrix
