I kinda doubt you are a Pink fan, but she did a blues number with Steven Tyler...Aerosmith....also has Ritchie Sambora....Bon Jovi's guitar player...doing a pretty cool solo on the song.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_m3ILp-LXEA&feature=related

Black Crowes - Seeing Things....all I could find was live ones....and the sound was bad, so this one is what I offer....you may find it hard to concentrate on the song though...heh.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HjnOTU0Nexg

Yellow Ledbetter by Pearl Jam...same goes for this video, at least give the song a chance without watching the video first, or it will probably kill it for you.

Awesome. thanks 2packs! I'm blown away by the total depth of musical knowledge of the contributors here. Some great advice here. I'm going to check out some of those influence with which I was familiar but not THAT familiar as it's been decades in some case since I heard them. Being from Boston I'm pretty familiar with those early grads from Berkeley school..like Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Gary Burton, Pat Metheny, etc.

I came into this thread late. That sound in SRV/Healy video, those tasty guitar licks and his singing are as good as it gets. I was lucky to see SRV just 6 months before his untimely accidental death. Saw him and Jeff Beck on same bill and I thought I died and went to heaven! The tragedy and irony of his death due to an accident is that he had straightened out his life and his problem addiction.

BTW, check out the the Jeff Beck album "Blow by Blow". This is the most amazing Jazz/Rock/Blues/whatever music and it transcends genres. No matter what taste you have gotta hear these tunes. See, Jeff beck if you ever get a chance. His music evolves every time he resurfaces. You'd swear he can vary it infinitely, and always does it tastefully. The types of sounds, vibrato, bar inflections, pull-offs, harmonics and bends that he gets from a guitar and electronics defy my understanding of musical instruments -- sometimes sounds like a violin, bell, cat, seagull or a human crying...but never gimmicky or inappropriately.

And ... all this is done with TASTE!

All I can I think of is the analogy of a Hall of Fame baseball pitcher, who has mastered every pitch and can throw them at any speed or arm angle...but invents pitches that no one can hit. All you can do is watch them blow by you!

When you hear him play it's clear that he's a musical genius. His creativity and what's in his brain are completely original even if he plays the same song from year to year. And he does impossible things..as he TOPS himself!

Jeff Beck - "Cause We've Ended As Lovers"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDgjBl86vq8

Oh..here an example of those variations (plus the added benefit of Eric Clapton joining in). Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck playing "Cause We've Ended As Lovers" at the Crossroads Guitar Festival 2004 in Texas.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZshJfWzgmok&NR=1

And for the sake of yet another comparison (and also to introduce a 21-yr old Aussie femle bassist (yes, I said FEMALE) ) - Jeff Beck with Tal Wilkenfeld at Crossroads 2007 Live. KILLER tunes!

BTW, Jeff Beck is 62 here!
