Freddie King Guitar Tab Collection Now Available

Posted by Michael Mueller on September 22, 2014 at 1:55 PM

Freddie King, sometimes referred to as the "Texas Cannonball" for his impressive stature and matching monstrous chops, certainly earned his reputation as a King of the blues. His instrumental tracks "Hide Away" and "The Stumble" have become blues standards, as have his hits "I'm Tore Down" and "Going Down," covered famously by Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck, respectively.

We've just posted brand-new tab for 10 of his greatest tracks, including "San-Ho-Zay," "Lonesome Whistle Blues," and "See See Baby." Study these tabs and listen closely to the tracks to glean insight into King's scorching blues phrasing. For those who really want to pursue his unique tone, King spanked his Gibson ES-335 using a plastic thumbpick and a metal finger pick on his index finger to produce a sharp and aggressive attack that resulted in his own unique tone and voice on the guitar.

For over 40 years now, that "Li'l ol' band from Texas," ZZ Top, has been plying audiences with their quintessential blend of rock and blues and down-home genuineness. Led by singer and guitarist Billy Gibbons and backed by the powerhouse rhythm section of bassist Dusty Hill and drummer Frank Beard, this Texas trio is responsible not only for some of the most popular classic rock tracks of all time, like "La Grange," "Cheap Sunglasses," and "Tush" but also in large part for the rise of the MTV music video in the early 1980s, with "Sharp Dressed Man" and "Legs," which featured the now iconic 1933 Ford and the "Eliminator girls."

GuitarInstructor.com is your one-stop source for officially licensed ZZ Top guitar tab as well as video song lessons for eight of the band's greatest hits, plus play-along minus-guitar tracks.
