Joe Bonamassa’s Gibson Les Paul tone tips guitar lesson


Joe Bonamassa, master blues-guitarist shows just how versatile a Gibson Les Paul can be, by running straight into the amp, using no pedals. By using nothing more than different pickup selections and tone/volume pot adjustments, he gets a surprisingly wide variation in sounds, from clean to dirty, and much in-between.

Hope you enjoy it!

Rick McCargar: I

 

The album “Back With the Jack” is a combination of Frank Zappa 1970’s swirling flanger style ironic parody in “Back WIth the Jack” about a trailer park party that ran out of Jack Daniel’s; a love song about how people affect our lives with the things “They Say”; “You Gotta Get Up and Riot! is a song that protests the NSA surveillance state; while “Streaming Sweatshops” points out that recording industry companies are again cheating artist’s in royalty payments; and I included an alternate take with megaphone vocals for “Back With the Jack”.

Hope you think about a couple of them, and enjoy them all.

Thank you for listening, and feel free to drop me a note if you liked these songs, or have a request.

Peace, Rick.
