    Thanks Griff

    Actualy Peter green is my favourite guitar player. I think that he is the best. few notes and telling so much.

    If you can one day check out ” Sugar mama ” by peter green and let me just know the chords and riff I will appreciate and for sure I won’t be the only only one. The intro I got it already

    many thanks again

    Thanks Griff! Very useful stuff. Put on a jamtrack now and you can use that anywhere even in slow blues if you slow it down

    Oh man, that is a fun little lick.
    I don’t know much about Peter Green. What do you like best about him or his style?
    And what would you say are some of his signature songs?

    Nice bends, very clean.
    Thanks for all the vids Griff.
    I like the quick concise teaching style in this vid.

    A simple lick “maybe to memorise” but to play well? with a bit of practice possibly. The bends to pitch are certainly great practice and it does sort out any sloppiness in the execution. It can either sound great if accurate or bad if played without conviction.

    Always been a fan of P Green. Saw him play at Coventry when I was still at school – brilliant. This lick crops up in ‘Stop messin around’ from his early Fleetwood Mac days. Thanks for the tab.

      My all time favorite guitarist, I had his producer Mike Vernon & the mighty combo do a gig for us at a little club I used to run earlier in the year it was a great evening, he has a guitarist named Kid Carlos Spanish I believe, he not only plays like peter but also looks like a young Peter check him out.

    Do want to tackle The Supernatural? Or Albatross? I saw him play with Fleetwood Mac but never with Mayall. He was good.

    Great choice Griff. I’ve always had an ear for Peter Green’s work with Fleetwood, Procolharem. I used to dream in those riffs, now thanks to you maybe a start at actually playing them.

    Nice lick from Peter Green who I first encountered as a 17 year old when he was playing in John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, and making light work of replacing the irreplaceable Eric Clapton. He made just one album with Mayall, “A Hard Road” which was released in 1967. It is a great blues album and I recommend it to anyone who loves to hear the gorgeous tone that came out of a ’59 Les Paul in the hands of a 20 year old master guitarist. Check out in particular a Freddie King number, “The Stumble” where he is on fire, playing with verve and vertuosity. Any chance of doing the tabs for that piece one day, Griff?

    How on earth do you always make your playing sound so clean and clear.? I guess it must be attention to the little things and the result of taking the time to listen carefully.

    Thanks Griff! Love Peter Green! Was the 1st blues I ever heard way back in 60’s when he was with Fleetwood Mac! Danny Kirwan was also a great blues/ rock player with the Mac back in the day when they were strictly blues! Great vibrato technique!!
