Taking lessons is a funny thing. I’ve met people that are way against them and people that think learning is impossible without them. Me, I don’t care one way or another. I’ve learned a lot from books, Youtube, and DVDs, but I’ve also had and currently do have a teacher.
I have no idea just how good he was at the instrument, but he managed to have an impact that far exceeded any kind of lecture, so he’s good at something.
B.B. King and Lucille. A match made in heaven if there ever was one, right?
The story behind Lucille begins in 1949, when B.B. King was playing at a dance hall in Arkansas, and a fight erupted at the bar.
