I started a thread compilation thread the other day about Derek Trucks, and thought it would be good to start on about how to play blues guitar like Stevie Ray Vaughan. There are a ton of videos and lessons about Stevei Ray, so it's going to be harder to pick the best ones...Send in your favorites, and help me make the definitive collection.

I remember seeing this Austin City Limits on PBS with my dad when it first aired...we were mesmerized!

Any discussion about SRV should include Albert King, who was one of Stevie's main influences. Here's a video with excerpts from their classic recording entitled "Albert King with Stevie Ray Vaughn - In Session":

It's also worth noting that Albert King's guitar is strung high string to low string in reverse order. This is one of the keys to his distinct sound, which is why Stevie's sound is also unique.

Here's the itunes link... this is a MUST OWN!!!!


  • In this video, watch 47:00 - where Albert talks to SRV about getting better. Then watch how Stevie launches into his intro lead, picking the strings without a pick, giving those notes an interesting SRV quality.JP 2013-04-23T18:10:01.0Z
