About this deal

The Blues and Blues Musicians finally could make themselves heard among the loud crowds and stuffed places, they usually used to play. Some of it is great, some of it not my taste, but the dedication to putting that much music together has to be admired.

I attended the Smithsonian's opening reception (and got John Monteleone to sign my Blue Guitar book). One would expect that such an overabundance produced over a compacted period would no doubt end up being terribly repetitive in both scores and lyrics.Certainly from a distance, they look very similar as regards body shape, pickups, controls and dot arrangement for the 24 frets. albums took me the best part of a year to work through them all a few times and pick out what I liked and was less fussed over.

Personally, I think he excelled at the early styles of country and slide stuff, so I never really listened to the whole thing, it was an ambitious project, and I am happy to see him still around, on the fishing programme. I love that guitar, its pickups, amazing ergonomics and super fast neck (I’m not a super fast player though). He's okay, he was on Mortimer and Whitehouse's Gone Christmas Fishing program at the end of last year. Another favourite tone of Brian's combines the neck and middle pickups for a warmer option than bridge and middle; listen to the solo on "Roger's Rocket" (from "Queen 2"). These are wired in series (instead of the more common wired in parallel) which means that each pickup turned on increases output volume.

I’d been given a copy of the Blue Guitar book by a close friend back in the late ‘90s, and it made a lasting impression on me. The mahogany body (the original is oak with a mahogany veneer) also features an acoustic chamber that aids resonance at louder volumes as well as making for a lighter weight guitar. He just wanted to get down on record the variety of blues that he enjoyed, hence the different styles per disc. I had the honor of interviewing Rudy (and, soon, Scott’s widow) and gazing upon and picking a few tunes on the guitars. I have the Blue box set, and as you'd expect from that many songs in one place at one time, it's a mix of awesome, really good, a bit mediocre and a handful of fillers.

I think he does get a bit of a bum rap, but he's done some great stuff - Auberge was the soundtrack to one summer holiday to France, and while I don't remember much beyond the title track, I do remember liking it a lot. The social and personal problems found their way into the music and started to change the Blues on a profound level. Read more Being a long time Chris Rea fan I eagerly awaited the release of the much talked about piece of work. The collection is a tribute to the masterful archtop luthier Jimmy D'Aquisto whose Blue Centura had been the inspiration behind the concept of a group of guitars from the finest builders alive at the time - given free creative reign - aside from some universal specifications - they just had to be blue.For each of the albums were studied their history and characteristics, and for the recording process and sessions in the studio were procured and used equipments which was used at the specific time, and the studio itself was set up in the way to best-possibly convey the sound of rooms of the previous times.

With over 20 pickup setting options, it's certainly one of the most tonally versatile guitars on the market!This whole high-class affair goes by Blue Guitars and is the result of working for 18 months 12 hours a day, seven days a week, of one man and his band. I had often thought that it would be neat to get all the great portrait painters together to interpret the same subject and then see the differences among them.
