Joe Bonamassa

My guitar tutor recommended listening to Joe Bonamassa a blue-rock guitarist who has been coined as the “New King Of Blues”. All I can say is wow…..he guitar skills beat the crap out of near enough all current popular guitarists…..amazing!!! Snippet from the website

“Blues-rock guitar virtuoso, vocalist and songwriter Joe Bonamassa kicked off 2007 with the honor of being named Best Blues Guitarist by Guitar Player Magazine’s readership in their annual Reader’s Choice Awards. The year continues with the release of Sloe Gin, Bonamassa’s seventh solo album, and fourth on his own J&R Adventures label. A mix of heavy blues, big rock and textured acoustic tracks that Joe says was in part inspired by Rod Stewart’s legendary 1969 debut solo LP, it reunites him with producer Kevin Shirley (Joe Satriani, Black Crowes, Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin).”

My fave track so far is “Woke Up Dreaming” which can be heard acoustic here:
