Blue Monday: Harry Georgeson

November 9, 2009

George Harrison isn’t typically thought of as a blues guitarist, but he definitely loved the form.  He frequently had his old friend Eric Clapton play lead on his records – most notably All Things Must Pass, Cloud 9, and Live in Japan.  And George is terribly underrated as a slide guitarist, generally taking a back seat to Duane Allman, Ry Cooder, Warren Haynes, Ben Harper, Derek Trucks and others but his slide work is creative and instantly recognizable.

Here’s one of George’s finest examples of slide work, from his swan song CD Brainwashed (which is an excellent addition to the Harrison canon).

    Muito boa esta gravação do George. Apesar de batlemaníaco fanático,nunca tinha ouvido.
