I Can't Quit You Baby Video Song Just Posted

Posted by Michael Mueller on December 26, 2013 at 10:28 AM

Led Zeppelin may be the greatest rock band in history, but, to a man, the band drew its greatest influence from American blues. Their cover of the Willie Dixon–penned "I Can't Quit You Baby," which appeared on their 1969 debut, Led Zeppelin, is the epitome of Zep's love of and reverence for traditional blues.

We've just posted a brand-new video song lesson for the Led Zeppelin version of "I Can't Quit You Baby," taught by Doug Boduch and featuring onscreen guitar tab of all of Jimmy Page's fiery and impassioned blues lines.

The father of electric blues guitar, Aaron Thibeault Walker—better known as T-Bone Walker—is one of the most important and influential guitarists in blues history. B.B. King has long cited T-Bone as one of his primary influences, with legendary acts like Gatemouth Brown, Chuck Berry, and even Jimi Hendrix owing the Texas bluesman a debt of gratitude.

Now you can check out some of T-Bone's signature stylings in our brand-new video song lessons with Doug Boduch. Song's include "T-Bone Boogie," "Mean Old World," and, of course, the blues standard "Stormy Monday."

Official Peter Green Era Fleetwood Mac Guitar Tab

Posted by Michael Mueller on December 12, 2013 at 5:24 PM

Long before Stevie Nicks and Lyndsey Buckingham shared the band's spotlight in the mid-'70s to the early '80s, Fleetwood Mac was a British blues band featuring one of the greatest yet most underrated blues-rock guitar players of all time, Peter Green. With Green and his now legendary 1959 Gibson Les Paul at the helm, the early Mac produced brawny blues numbers like "Oh Well (Part 1)" and "Albatross," which were more akin to the Bluesbreakers and Led Zeppelin than, say, "Rhiannon" or "Landslide."

If you're ready to learn some of these classic riffs and licks, we've got official guitar tab for 11 songs from Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac. Click below for the full list:
