Any love for Freddie King?

  1. He's gotta be my favorite blues guitarist. He kept the groove like a metronome, had a biting guitar tone and a huge voice.

  3. Man, how 'bout that collar he's wearing
     
  4. Actually, what makes me laugh about King, is how he wears his guitar strap over the shoulder instead of around the neck.

    I tried that once and it didn't work out too well, haha.




    LMAO I've never noticed that collar before - that's just ridiculous.
     
  5. I noticed that, too, and I've also tried it. Didn't drop my guitar, but it starts slipping for sure. He dwarfs that ES-355, too. That's no small guitar.
     
  6. Damn, I know. He makes that thing look like a kids toy. :p


    Speaking of the blues, are you into James Cotton?
     
  7. I tend to shy away from the bluesmen that go heavy on the harmonica
     
  8. LMFAO.

    A bit more into the guitar I assume?
    Then I bet you like Albert King.
     
  9. dude. freddie king with clapton.
