My how times change. If this was the 70's, a major label such as Capricorn would have released Andy Aledort and the Groove King's "Live at North Star 2009." It would have spent a year on the Billboard album charts and gone multi-platinum. Unfortunately, blues rock has fallen out of favor. So much the worse for us. I can listen to this record over and over and find new meaning with each hearing. Maybe that's because Andy Aledort teaches rock stars such as Joe Perry of Aerosmith how to play the blues. Maybe because he plays guitar in Dickie Betts (of Allman Brothers fame) band. Maybe because he replaced Jimi Hendrix in The Band of Gypsies for a Japanese Tour. Or maybe because he's been the senior editor of Guitar World Magazine for seemingly forever. No matter what the reason, "Live at North Star 2009" captures Aledort at the peak of his vocal, instrumental, and improvisational powers. He proves himself a "Master of the Stratocaster." ~ Continued here... TheWorkingMusician.com

Only a handful of people on the
planet can deliver the instructional goods on slow blues as
well as Andy
Aledort. Andy has served as
senior editor for several top guitar magazines, has authored over
200 guitar instruction books, and has studied the styles and
techniques of virtually every major electric blues and rock guitar
artist in history. You'd be hard pressed to find anyone better
qualified to present a more thorough slow blues curriculum than
Andy covers a diverse range of soloing styles and techniques within the context of eight different key centers (E, F, G, A, Bb, C and D). Each key center series of lessons features different forms, feels and progressions and includes performances and detailed breakdowns covering requisite techniques, solo development, improvisation and application of theory. The soloing examples demonstrate a wide spectrum of both right- and left-hand articulation techniques, phrasing concepts and the stylistic signatures that are found in the playing of all blues guitar masters, ranging from Albert King, B.B. King, T-Bone Walker, Buddy Guy, and Freddie King, to the blues/rock virtuosos such as Jimi Hendrix, Duane Allman, Johnny Winter, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
Aledort also takes you to grad school on doublestop sixths, sliding sixths, triads, opens strings, vibrato, hammers, ghost bends, pull-offs, fingerpicks, rolls, diminished 7th lines, cascading lines, expressions, forearm vibrato, B.B.'s box, thematic soloing, improvisation, two-to-three equivalency, repeating triplets, anticipating changes, stretching time, repetition, solo development, dynamics, oblique bends, slides, intervallic jumps, tremolo picking, ascending the fretboard, trills, glissandos and applications of composite blues, Mixolydian, Dorian, and major, minor, and dominant pentatonic scales.
Slow Blues Power is indeed an extraordinary learning experience and virtually bottomless resource of insight for any student of electric blues guitar.
