I'm looking for some albums or live recordings of good blues guitar (not blues rock) played on an SG - obviously there's plenty of stuff played on Strats, Teles, ES-335s, etc., but I'm not aware of a lot out there played on an SG. Can any of you recommend anything?

This thread could also be a good place for people to let others know about cool blues recordings they discover featuring SGs.

I've got a Buddy Guy record with him on the front pullin' some notes from an SG.

Cool...Buddy's usually a Strat player....but he's been around the block a few times, and may have had chance to use lots of guitars.

all of those vids were nice but that Derek one sounds exactly like what you were askin for. Can't get much more blues than that one! He looked pretty young in that vid too. I've had the chance to talk to Derek several times over the years and he is the real deal playing wise! Also happens to be a heck of a nice guy... very down to earth.

Eric Clapton in the days of his guitar style that was my favorite of his.

I never watch that vid when it's posted.

I don't like to see someone really not liking his guitar.

You really think Jimi's expression is dislike for the white SG? He doesn't seem to be fighting the guitar, but he does seem subdued, at least for him.
