  1. From The Cradle by Eric Clapton ·
    For all those who wanted to hear Eric Clapton in an "blues only" setting,well this is cd for you.He pays tribute to a number of his blues idols(Muddy Waters,Freddie King, etc) for starters and also pulls out some great acoustic numbers as well w...(more)

  2. Band Of Gypsys by Jimi Hendrix ·
    This is a must lsten to cd if you haven't heard this one yet.Here Hendrix lets his "freak flag" fly in all of its glory whether it's going thru the funky jam of "Who Knows" or showing his dark side on the epic "Machine Gun" this album is argubal...(more)

  3. Sweet Tea by Buddy Guy ·
    This was my favorite blues cd when it came out.It's cool that he decided to do a cd on a type of blues that we sometimes don't pay attention to and that's mississippi hill music or I believe it's also called fat possum too.The acousic song "done...(more)

  4. Bridge Of Sighs by Robin Trower ·
    His playing on this cd is some of his finest work.The title track has that Hendrix vibe to it but it draws you in with that long trill at the begginning."Too Rolling Stoned" is a definte must especailly for the long jam at the end.His playing em...(more)

  5. Hound Dog Taylor and the HouseRockers by Hound Dog Taylor ·
    It's raw,fun, and good to learn a little slide from as well.I can hear where Thorogood got some of his stuff.

  6. Danelectro Chicken Salad Vibrato ·
    My only drawbacks on this are it should have better access to the battery(you must flip it over and unscrew it)and it's a battery killer so getting an adapter to plug into it might not be a bad thing.But for 30 bucks and that's only because it s...(more)

  7. Boss BD-2 Blues Driver ·
    This is by far the best distortion pedal I ever had and wouldn't even think of giving it away or not using it in my rig

  8. In Session by Albert King & Stevie Ray Vaughan ·
    This brings together both the master and his #1 protoge for some kiiler blues playing.There's a lot of joking and talking in between songs betweeen them but it only shows how deep the respect they have for each other and it shows in the music as...(more)

  9. PT Power Trio by Pat Travers ·
    This is a trip down memory lane for some of these songs as Pat & co cover bands like Cream,Grand Funk,ZZ Top and others.This cd is hit or miss depending on how you interepet the way they play each song. I was disappointed on the Grand Funk tune ...(more)

  10. Blues Guitar Classics by Wolf Marshall ·
    This is a good book to learn about how to play the blues,he breaks down a lot of the how to's about how they did things even with what type of sound to dial in. I am currently using this book right now and it has helped a whole lot in my playing...(more)

  12. Epiphone Les Paul Standard ·
    I was going to get a strat at 1st but my friend who went with me said I sounded better with the les paul than the strat and I figured what the hell I always wanted a real les paul.What I like about it is everything,sometimes I look at it and can...(more)

  13. Freedom by Sky High ·
    I checked this band out by accident and glad I did ,Clas Yngstrom can seriously get down on the guitar and do his Hendrix thing to a tee.There are 2 Hendrix tunes on here ,"Freedom" & "All Along The Watchtower" and they both smoke.This dude can ...(more)

  14. Marshall BB-2 Bluesbreaker Distortion ·
    It's not a bad distortion pedal but I use a boss blues driver for distortion,I do like it's use as either a boost or a distortion,but I'd like to have the guvnor pedal instead.

  15. Gibson Flying V ·
    If you want your micheal schenker jones or play some albert king then this is for you,but you should also give it a try if you want something different.I play les pauls but I also love playing this as well as much as my les paul.

  16. Crate RFX 120 Combo ·
    This is a special order amp that I have only seen at guitar center and also in musciansfriend's catalog.If you are looking for something that has a retro look and are into effects in the amp and really sounds great then this might be something t...(more)

  17. Live Evil by Black Sabbath ·
    It's ok but the story behind this was supposedly it was done in a rehearsal space and then they "mixed" the audience in way low.Also the credits don't list Vinny Appice with the others instead a special thanks section for him and the keyboard pl...(more)

  20. Korg Ampworks ·
    For the price I got it, it's not a bad simulator to start out with but if you want to find something that gives more variety check a pod out or some of the other mutli effect things that are out there.
