About this deal

For guitarists accustomed to playing in standard, none of these tunings are as intuitive as, say, open G or E. But remember that Albert King was holding a right-handed electric guitar the “wrong” way around. This yields a different perspective on the instrument, one that is, in a way, more in tune with nature, with the low strings closer to the ground and the high strings nearer to the sky. But even upside down, some of King’s open tunings are mighty strange, which also accounts for the unique beauty embodied in some of his phrasing.

ALBERT SUPERSIZE - Winner of the Cogan Heroes Picturebook Award, voted by schoolchildren. Albert is on his biggest adventure with dinosaurs and volcanoes and then he helps his garden chums in an adventure of their own.I like this book, I like the drawings and I like the man who wrote it. I like tortoises. What's not to like?' – Jeremy Clarkson As Gibbons recalls: ‘Albert asked to play my guitar. He had it upside-down and played a little bit. Then he asked, “Why are you using these strings?” I told him because I wanted to have that bluesy sound. He said, “Why are you working so hard? Get something light!”

Really lovely, my 8 year old loved it. An important message on the power of community and friendship' Honest Mum So if you want to sound like Albert King, but also want versatility and practicality from your rig, one of the Blues Cube amps could be a brilliant choice.In 1983, King was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame. [7] He received a star on the St. Louis Walk of Fame in 1993. [35] In 2011, King was honored with a marker on the Mississippi Blues Trail in his hometown Indianola. [7] [36] He was inducted into the Memphis Music Hall of Fame in 2013. [9] When I watch a old video I feel sad for a little bit that he’s gone. Then I smile knowing his music and influence will always be there.. he influenced me . As Albert would say during one of his soulful solos “whooooo” 🙂 Reply a b c d Watrous, Peter (December 23, 1992). "Albert King, a Master of the Blues, Is Dead at 69". The New York Times.
