True! There are way too many excellent unrecognized session guitarists (on the other hand if they were recognized I guess they would no longer be session guitarists!? )
Either way thanks for the lesson Jose
Great Lesson and a good point about 'Unsung Guitar Heroes'!!!! One of my favourites is a guy called Tim Renwick who played on Al Stewart's 'Year of the Cat' LP! As well as playing with Eric Clapton he also play alongside David Gilmour in Pink Floyd!!!
Jimmy Page was a session guitarist early in his career, I read somewhere he did more work than anyone else in England at one time.
Cool lesson man! Our very own Muris is a session guitarist I believe!
Very good lesson ! Congrats!
This is very good man, I really like this solo. Well done
Session players rule, cheers!
Very cool man. I do session work but I wish they request something like this
Hi my friends! Today’s lesson is a humble tribute to all those session guitarists, which generally stand behind great pop artists. A couple of years ago, I was listening to the radio and suddenly something surprised me: a guitar solo in an Alejandro Sanz’ song.
I couldn’t believe my ears. What a great guitarist!! Months later I’ve came to know that Ludovico Vagnone was the one playing that solo and that he is a well-known European guitarist. Since that day I started to pay attention to pop songs and I realized that pop singers have great musicians playing for them. Even though you dislike this kind of music, I strongly recommend you to listen to Cristian Castro guitarist, as well as Ricky Martin and Enrique Iglesias (Greg Howe himself used to play for the last one).
To pay tribute to these hidden heroes, I leave you with this song I’ve composed for a pop band in which I used to play a long time ago. The chord progression is:
// A / D / G / D/ A / D / G / D/ A / % / % / % //
I play A mixo scale, A pentatonic major and G, D and A arpeggio over a A mixolydian backing track. Enjoy it!!!
