About this deal

Again it was movement that was pushing the Blues into a new direction, movement upwards North to Chicago in the pursuit of jobs and a new life.

As well as fulfilling everything you need on the sound and playability fronts, you have to look the part too. Certainly from a distance, they look very similar as regards body shape, pickups, controls and dot arrangement for the 24 frets. In total, Blue Guitars collects no less than 137 songs which themselves are extracted from all the songs Rea wrote for the project.One would expect that such an overabundance produced over a compacted period would no doubt end up being terribly repetitive in both scores and lyrics. I was there early on Saturday afternoon, just to see the Blue Gang reassembled, though I wasn’t able to play any. I had often thought that it would be neat to get all the great portrait painters together to interpret the same subject and then see the differences among them. From the undeniably classic pastel tones, to the deep blues that mimic the ocean as the natural wood grain peaks through, blue guitars just look great. I’d been given a copy of the Blue Guitar book by a close friend back in the late ‘90s, and it made a lasting impression on me.

I love that guitar, its pickups, amazing ergonomics and super fast neck (I’m not a super fast player though). The maximum use of the sound potential of these woods is ensured by our innovative voicing process of the soundboard. Whether it's a bright gloss or smooth satin, maybe a trans coat revealing the wood underneath - your need to love the look of your bass guitar. Isn't that the guy of "Driving Home For Christmas" and "On The Beach", songs that are played to annoying death on any radio station around the world? Blue guitars have long been a popular choice for guitarists who want to stand out from the crowd with style.The social and personal problems found their way into the music and started to change the Blues on a profound level. Read more about the condition New: An item that is still in its original shrink wrap from the manufacturer and the original manufacturer’s seal (if applicable) has not been removed.

The variety and uniqueness on offer here make this an outstanding recording guitar when you've run out of options on your usual guitar collection. albums took me the best part of a year to work through them all a few times and pick out what I liked and was less fussed over. The book, slightly smaller than an LP cover, begins after the two pages that hold the first 8 CDs with two large paintings. Plays great, feels sturdy, stays in tune when you hit the tremolo bar and the options you get out of the switching system are sweet.

Those follow on the subsequent pages, with every CD getting its own introduction followed by complete lyrics. A premium quality, padded gig-bag, made from durable showerproof material, with twin rucksack-style shoulder straps, side and front grab handles, dual front pockets and stitched BMG logo, is supplied as standard with all Special models. The Blue Guitar Collection - originally commissioned by the late Scott Chinery in the 1990s - stands as one of the most culturally significant collections of handmade musical instruments in the world.

The mahogany body (the original is oak with a mahogany veneer) also features an acoustic chamber that aids resonance at louder volumes as well as making for a lighter weight guitar. A real delight for those that have a fascination for all genres of the blues and for those that appreciate Chris Rea's guitar playing. In these songs, he follows the Blues from its origins in Africa to the sad journey that takes the music to the Americas where the Blues evolves and blends with other styles. A bit of a shame that most people just know him for 'driving home for Xmas', as he is actually a master of the instrument and just became a bit derivative with the sounds that made money. If two pickups are on and one is reverse phased, the resulting tone is minus the sonic elements that are shared by both pickups.

However, Chris Rea has another side far more complex than cheery Xmas and California-living beach vibes.
