For your viewing pleasure - Joe Bonamassa playing an SG.
No, seriously. I wouldn't lie to you.
Gotta love Beth.
I love their collaborations. Joe can be a very soulful player when he's working with someone else's style.
Wrong note Joe, at 5:22
I love him with BCC, too.
On his own (to my ear) there always seems to be some element missing and he tries to make up for it by adding more notes. Incredible talent, though.
She does a great Steve Marriott imitation on this one :)
It took about a full 4 minutes before finally getting off the tonic (G) grove & hanging on a different chord for a while! Sure 'nuff, & it was with the ol quick power b7th (F) to that held out Gospel sounding 4th (C) & then... that's right, back to that tonic G again.
There aren't too many songs that don't throw in some kind of something different along the way to help break the monotony of a repetitious tonic feel, but they are out there.
LOL, now I bet everybody is thinking about some repetitive tonic tunes they know & are busy fast-forwarding them in their brains internal player checking for those changes that are or aren't there...?
Did anybody think of a solid song that never leaves tonic from beginning to end?
Are you critiquing that open G string that rings out for a sec? Heck, Pagey's live playing style is chock full of those eh? Good ear picking that quick little oops out of the mix man. He does the same sort of thing right away again at around 5:25/26 but this time it sounds like more than one string & it doesn't quite stand out as much.
I'll never forget when I first noticed how much added extra string noise I was generating during lead playing way back when. It took a considerable amount of effort to embrace the concept of muting unwanted strings to alleviate those unwanted accidentals & still be able to play with the same level enthusiasm & feeling. No doubt that the effort was worth it in the long run & yet, sometimes this stuff happens, even to guys like JB!
Now the real question becomes, did Joe mimic his initial open string 'oops' with that quickly followed 'improved upon imitation' of it at 5:25 to lessen the impression of making a mistake? Is he really that slick? Almost as if he's saying "that? that right there? HahHa! I meant to do that!" lol ... right..
Nobody biting on a reply to either of these diversion?
