Let's join veteran guitarist, Chris Buono, as he methodically breaks down some of the most popular rock songs from the 60's all the way through the modern era!
'China Grove' is from The Doobie Brothers' third album, 'The Captain and Me', released in 1973. This familiar classic rock staple topped out at #15 on the Billboard Top 100 and is titled based on an actual small town in Texas. The idea for the title bloomed as the band traveled to and from San Antonio, Texas - passing through China Grove. So without further adieu, let's head to that sleepy little town down around San Antone!
'She Talks to Angels' was the fourth single to be released from the Black Crowes' seminal first album, 'Shake Your Money Maker'. Released in 1990, the song has become an instantly recognizable classic that continues to inspire acoustic guitar players of past and current generations with its clever use of open tunings and tender vocals.
Released in 1967 by the British supergroup, Cream, this timeless classic was assembled around the infectious bassline created by bass player Jack Bruce, and was inspired by none other than the late Jimi Hendrix. The song features a young Eric Clapton who was just beginning to gain recognition as one of the preeminent guitarists of all time. Sitting comfortably as track #2 on Cream's second album, 'Disraeli Gears', it has since become the quintessential "first song" learned by many a fledgling guitar player.
