This weeks Old School Friday For Grown Folks takes us to the Best Guitar and Solos. The very first person that popped in my mind was Sly Dunbar; and Robbie Shakespare. This was the sound, the beat behind many of Bob Marley and other Reggae Artist. They had this distinct sound. When Stevie Wonder visitied Jamaica in the 1980's he contracted Sly and Robbie to be featured on his then new single, Master Blaster. Well as you know Master Blaster became and instant succes..
Check out the sounds..
That is Robbie rocking the bass mon! and Sly is on the drums.
This group was one of my favorite growing up. ZZ top are killers on the guitar. This was the recent performance on American Idol, featuring this years winner David Cook
Another group I love din the 80's was Aerosmith (actually I still love Aerosmith, Steven Tyler is the bomb).
This collaboration in the 80's brought a serious change to rap music
Well it could not be a complete without Prince and as you and I know to find (anything) Prince on the internet is a challenge, So if you see this video disapper (lol!) you will know why. However, this man has taken the guitar to new heights. This is classic prince.
