Ms Grapevine and MarvalusOne have teamed up to create a meme titled Old School Friday and since I love my music I had to sign up to join! To join in the Old School Friday Fun go Here for guidelines. Sometimes I feel like I have been singing the blues all my life. Always that guidance from above the keeps me above the water. I think many people can relate to this weeks theme. Even the though the blues might put you in a melancholy mood, it also makes you remember the good things in life.

My first choice is Albert Collins. He had this unique sound that many musicians have emulated over the years. He was nicknamed, "the iceman" by people in the industry. Check out the way he handles those strings.

Here is where Reggae meets blues (you know I have to throw my reggae in there). Roykey Creo Demonstrates Reggae Ska Samba Blues scales and licks down and up strokes skanking two and four for acoustic and electric guitars

Albert Collins is a name I haven't heard in a while. This brings back so many memories, of spades and dominoes...You know you are talented when you make the guitar sing...His guitar definitely has a voice....

I don't know if I can mix my reggae with blues, maybe it just depends on the song...I'm just not sure this cat is doing, teaches us all the styles???

Regina said...

LOL! Only you would mix reggae and blues!
Happy OSF!

Marvalus said...

Wow! I've never heard of reggae and blues mixed together...very interesting!

Happy OSF :)

Mrs G, Albert Collins was a master in his own time. I mean the man can do some things with the guitar that ain't legal in 4 states
