Derek Trucks is great. I love the mideastern scales and manipulations of notes (so it sounds to me) that he uses. Anybody know where he gets those ideas? I've been working on microtonality lately, listening to slide (naturally) and, of course, Beck. I don't play slide, and I don't care to, but I can bend a string and I own a few wang bars.
You’ve probably heard this before, but I’ll post it here cuz it bears repeating. This is easily my favorite vocal of hers. The guitar playing here isn’t especially emblematic of hers or Derek’s capabilities, but man, when she unloads that vibrato I get the goosebumps every time. I actually think the guitar accompaniment helps showcase just how lovely her voice is.
