Freddie’s Influence


This course will teach you how to solo like Freddie King in three different song styles.


Overview

Freddie’s Influence

Freddie King played as hard as Albert, as soft as B.B., and at times faster than either of them. His speed and complex bending made his style easy to recognize but difficult to learn.

I’ve collected licks from many of Freddie’s performances. Licks that capture the intensity, feeling, power and flat-out speed of his playing.

Lesson Details

    Learn a fierce 36 bar slow blues solo in the style of Have You Ever Loved A Woman. There's a lot of intensity, power and speed in this solo.

    • Backing Track
  • Lesson 2
    Lesson 2: Swing Blues

    Hideaway is usually performed as a mid-tempo blues number, but sometimes Freddie played it a lot faster. That's what the solo in this song is inspired by.

    Lesson 3: Rockin' Blues

    The solo taught in this lesson is inspired by the frenetic, gospel-tinged renditions of Goin' Down that Freddie King played live. There's also a few of my favorite licks from Me and My Guitar in there as well.
