    I won't feel complete if I don't do the Bonus Material that came with BGU. Griff does a really nice job of teaching four "in the style of..." lessons with a quick 12 bars of examples of Albert, B.B., and Freddie King.

    ALBERT
    B.B.
    FREDDIE

    There's one more...Eric Clapton...later.

    Nicely done jmin ! The intro and turnaround licks in that bgu bonus material are real helpful too !

    I especially like that b.b. King solo, played that a few times just last night myself.

    Thanks, WIT!! This was fun! I'm looking forward to turnarounds, too! I'm squeezing every last drop out of BGU!

    That was excellent jmin! I thought I was listening to the Kings themselves. Great feel, touch and tone.

    Thanks, Ivan! These we're fun, short lessons that were a lot easier to get though than the 6 solos in BGU. I'm really looking forward to finishing all the BGU stuff. I think it will be the first guitar lesson material I ever fully completed!

    Well done. I thought the Albert King tone was a bit thin, but maybe that is what you were going for.

    I did those a while ago and maybe should revisit.

    Hey, David! Thanks for the comments! I wasn't going for thin, but I used my '73 Tele and I have to be careful about that! Thanks!

    The other "from the masters" clips had various tones, so good.
