  • Albert King - Born Under A Bad Sign

    2:47

    Albert King (April 25, 1923 -- December 21, 1992) was an American blues guitarist and singer.
    In 1966 he signed with the Stax record label. Produced by Al Jackson, Jr., King with Booker T. & the MGs recorded dozens of influential sides, such as Crosscut Saw and As The Years Go Passing By, and in 1967 Stax released the album, Born Under a Bad Sign. The title track of that album (written by Booker T. Jones and William Bell) became King's best known song and has been covered by many artists (from Cream to Homer Simpson).
    King was a left-handed upside-down/backwards guitarist. He was left-handed, but usually played right-handed guitars flipped over upside-down so the low E string was on the bottom. In later years he played a custom-made guitar that was basically left-handed, but had the strings reversed (as he was used to playing). He also used very unorthodox tunings (i.e., tuning as low as C to allow him to make sweeping string bends). Some believe that he was using open E minor tuning (C-B-E-G-B-E) or open F tuning (C-F-C-F-A-D). A less is more type blues player, he was known for his expressive bending of notes, a technique characteristic of blues guitarists.

  • Dont Lie To Me Albert King with Stevie Ray Vaughan

    10:09

    Information and lyrics
    1-Information
    Don't You Lie to Me
    Don't You Lie to Me (sometimes called I Get Evil) is a blues song recorded by Tampa Red in 1940. It became a standard of the blues, with recordings by various artists. The song was also interpreted by rock and roll pioneers Fats Domino and Chuck Berry.
    -Original song
    Don't You Lie to Me was recorded by Tampa Red approximately mid-point in his prolific recording career, representing the transition from his earlier hokum recordings to his later early Chicago-blues combo style. This was the same period when he began playing the electric guitar and recorded his best known blues classics, including It Hurts Me Too, Love with a Feeling, and Anna Lou Blues, the B-side of Don't You Lie to Me
    -Albert king's versions
    In 1962, Albert King recorded Don't You Lie to Me as I Get Evil (Bobbin 135), which was included on his first album The Big Blues. King's version uses an Afro-Cuban style rhythm, which he would later use for his 1967 hit Crosscut Saw. Later, King with Stevie Ray Vaughan recorded it live for television in 1983, which is included on Albert King with Stevie Ray Vaughan in Session. In 1977, B.B. King recorded the song for his King Size album. Gary Moore recorded it using both titles Don't You Lie to Me (I Get Evil), which follows Albert King's version, for his 1992 After Hours album.
    2-Lyrics
    There's two kind of people
    I just can't stand
    Evil-hearted woman
    And a lyin' man

    Don't you lie to me
    Now, don't you lie to me
    Because it makes me mad
    Evil as a man can be

    When you told me
    That you loved me, long time ago
    The fellow that you got
    You don't want him no more

    Don't you lie to me
    Now, don't you lie to me
    Because it makes me mad
    I get evil as a man can be

    You told me
    That you loved me, long time ago
    The fellow that you have
    You don't want him no more

    Don't you lie to me
    Now don't you lie to me
    Because it makes me mad
    I get evil as a man can be

    Don't you lie to me
    Don't you lie to me
    No, don't lie to me
    Now, don't you lie to me

    Because it makes me mad
    I get evil as a man can be

  • Albert King Blues Guitar Lesson

    For tab and jam track visit - In this lesson we continue to explore the minor pentatonic scale (in the key of E), however we had a new pattern (some new notes) to the scale and learn how to play an Albert King style guitar solo. This lesson isn't recommended for the absolute beginner, but if you're fairly comfortable with playing lead, then you should be able to play the licks in this lesson

  • 4 Fret Bends - Albert King Style

    9:24

    - If you pay close attention to Albert King's playing, you'll hear some bends that aren't easily replicated with standard Box 2 bending. That's because at times, he's bending 3 or 4 frets from a lower note, to the same target note. The result is a bend with more tension and a noticeably lower starting point. In this lesson I show you how you can replicate this sound.

    I'll keep walking
    'Til my back ain't got no bone

    Stopping every girl I see
    Oh Girl you know you got me going crazy
