Thanks to Pam, Susan, and Joe for getting me started practicing this song on my guitar this past Saturday night. After listening to it, It got stuck in my head. Blue On Black is a song that my band I, (when we still played often), used to play “back in the day”, when the tune first made the top ten. We always did the acoustic version and I still haven’t learned the solo part yet. Our lead guitar player was Joey Stason at the time and he could burn that solo up man, I mean, he hit every Kenny Wayne Shepherd lick, then some. I lost track of Jason when he went to Iraq with the Marines in 2001.
Free play or download in box.net. (Links to the right).
The song can be played with 4 chords, mainly in progression with one break.
Chords are D, C, G and A. All modified.
The “A” is played at the break during the end verse of the chorus.
Other than that I am not going to get any further into it. I ain’t here to give a lesson, I am here to write about it.
