  • What makes certain amps better for blues than others?

    I'm wanting to build a tube amplifier for a guitar. I find that I like the blues sound in guitars better than others. So my question is what components of an amplifier make it more suitable for blues (Or any specific genre) than other amps? Also, any recommendations for parts, methods, and anything else would be extremely helpful. Thank you.

How do you feel about Europeans "stealing" your culture? Rockabilly revival didn't start with Robert Gordon in 1977, it started with The Wild Angels in 1968. In times when America was engrossed in disco, funk and crappy arena rock it were the British teddy boys keeping the rockabilly banner high. The reason Stray Cats relocated to Great Britain at the beginning of their career is because no one cared for them in the States in 1979. There are even rockabilly bands in Poland, Russia and Yugoslavia. Should they be even allowed to play American music? Americans invented rockabilly but Brits do it better. @Hope: "I guess I'm failing to see a question here". That's your problem. I asked if you're familiar with the British rockabilly scene. @Cowboy Neal At The Wheel: I knew that someone will write how American rockabilly is the only real and authentic rockabilly. And I supposed it would be you. @American Guitarist: "...none of the artists you mentioned would be where they are musically without all those American rockabilly pioneers...". I agree. @Melting Media: "Carl Perkins was still playing rockabilly in 1968". From 1966 on he was playing mainly country music. @martin couch: "...I find it curious you'd list the Polecats in lieu of, oh let's say someone like Levi Dexter or even Dave Edmunds, who's really the father of the whole scene". You can only post 10 videos and I wanted to post some actual music videos from the 80's. The Polecats are the perfect example of modernized 80's rockabilly. They were what 80's rockabilly scene was all about. I like Levi Dexter but he started his career in the USA. It were The Wild Angels who started this whole neo-rockabilly thing in 1968, not Dave Edmunds.

    Just heard that Doc passed on today. Another huge loss for American music. Your thoughts, comments, favorite songs, etc. Tennessee Stud from the great Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's Will The Circle Be Unbroken album. Featuring some commentary by Doc http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hlxp8OJd6... Glen, your comments remind me of Wire's question about whether or not to see Lazy Lester. I think we've all passed on shows thinking "I'll see them next time around", but sometimes there is no next time. I was fortunate enough to see Doc play a half dozen times or more, and even more fortunate to speak with him several times. He was gracious, funny, and humble in person. Any of you that are players, check out the nut on Doc's guitar in Shades' Deep River Blues link. Any ideas? Wire, Friends Of Old Time Music is a great box set. Get it if you don't already have it :) Oops, so sorry Stella, I was just looking at Shades of Grey's answers, and used her name by mistake. Don't mind me :( You may be right Wire, but I don't see a zero fret, just the nut with a big chunk missing at the D string. You think maybe it just broke off and Doc left it alone since it didn't affect the action or tone? If you pause the vid. for a good luck, the whole nut looks thrashed. Looks like a rawhide dog treat after it's been chewed on for awhile... "good look", not "good luck"... Is there such a thing as Type 2 (adult onset) dyslexia? If so, I may have it ;) Just came across Ry Cooder's remembrance in case anyone would like to see it- http://artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/0...
