Name that tune… February 9, 2010

Here are a few tracks from my most recent studio project, playing bass for an instructional book/CD package by my friend Burgess Speed. Burgess was my (very patient) editor on last year’s The Total Blues Bassist project, so it was a pleasure to return the favor and help with his CD. It’s called The Beginner’s Guide to Electric Guitar and it’s available through National Guitar Workshop Publications.

I know from personal experience that it’s not easy to write original examples “in the style of” the classics. Burgess did a great job capturing the essence of these examples without ripping them off note for note. See if you can name the tunes; first person to respond correctly (in the Comment section below) gets a gold star!

Listen to The Beginner’s Guide to Electric Guitar.

ps Yes, that is Pete “Cowbell” Sweeney on the drums!
