Blue Trace: Modern Rock at the dawn of the blue

Modern Rock

Blue seems to be a kind of hard to be in music these days, especially when you are in your 20s, but it’s one of my passions. Some other genres can boast such a pure emotion, unadulterated in its crudest form. I came through the modern blues rock, oddly enough. Growing up in the grunge era and post-grunge heard a lot of alternative rock and, more recently, garage rock bands of movement. Having heard the White Stripes and the Strokes, I again find the classic rock, garage rock, and rock and roll. From there, I found the influences of rock and roll, blues.

Drawing a small story of the blues through the years, I hope to help others discover this incredible species and to help maintain the first teachers of live blues in spirit. This is just a nobody course of the partial guide a lineage could be traced. Especially the artists who have highlighted is the music has influenced me, improving gender and spirit of the blues is kept alive.

It is important to understand a little history of why people like blues. The blues is typically a story, usually a history of pain or other pain that is easy to identify. blues artists began playing music in the streets in the south and the songs were often sung at the last minute to tell a story or even preach religious messages. This idea of a story and is easy to carry out a large part of its appeal. Everyone can identify with the pain of lost love and if it is often the basis for many blues songs. Not only people can relate to it, but its content creates a dynamic performance that comes from the soul and pure emotion. People often inspired by the stories of blues songs “get into music” and often this leads to develop improvisations that artists become an emotional connection with performance. This aspect has remained unchanged since its creation. That’s why I love the blues, and why after listening to thousands of different bands and genres, the music continued to play and listen to most is the blues.

At first:
In the early 1800s, it is when they started the blues. South African Americans transmitted orally and music soon intertwined with the popular music of America at the time. This combination produces some of the musicians and blues original recordings. With simple folk songs and acoustic guitars, these artists often sing about what they knew a hard life, and religion. In the 20s and 30s artists such as Charley Patton, Lonnie Johnson, Son House and others they have some of the “blues” of the original recordings. These performances and recordings are often rough, very improvised and can also be believed, that may be difficult to obtain. Here are some highlights of the day: Son House, who is taking on the blues and folk is so intense and emotional that can compete with any other musical genre or record to date; Blind Willie McTell, who is the guitar work is complex, unique and imitated since then; Blind Lemon Jefferson, which is the blues, gospel evangelist type voice rough and could do tingle in the spine; and Leadbelly, although best known as a popular musician, with Woodie Guthrie wrote some of the most influential music in American history.

The embodiment:
When it comes to the blues, it seems that only a man never comes to mind as the absolute incarnation of gender, emotion and lifestyle: Robert Johnson. Considered by many to be the absolute pinnacle of this type, his life was often full of mystery and legend. Playback and recording in the 30s and 40s, as well as Son House and others are said to be as blues and guitar, Johnson had to sell his soul to the devil at the crossroads (later written in song and many other legends). With classics like “Sweet Home Chicago”, “Love in Vain” and “Stop Breaking Down” which have been covered by many other musicians, the music of Johnson can be seen as the cornerstone on which all blue later built . In short, if you are in the blues and you do not know Robert Johnson, you do not know the blues.

In the 1950s, after the development of the first electric guitars and amplifiers, the blue won a new generation of players. Electric guitar would remain the instrument of choice for the coming years in the class of the blue, but the pioneers still produces some of the best music ever made. Electric Blues has also become more diversified based on geography with styles ranging from Texas and Chicago are significantly different. Chicago blues is how best-known blues, appears with great artists like Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf, Buddy Guy and Willie Dixon raise the bar to a new standard for blues music, where attention the soul focused, emotion, intensity and raw early rock and roll. Texas blues was the twangy country and influenced the Chicago blues club based. Great artists like Albert Collins, Freddie King, T-Bone Walker, and Lightnin ‘Hopkins. Personal favorites of mine include Buddy Guy, Elmore James, T-Bone Walker, and Willie Dixon.

The king:
One of the most influential guitarists of all time, B. B. King can not be mentioned without automatically think of the blues. One of the most successful blues artists, B. B. King is also known to cross to different genres, including rock and roll, jazz and country. His contribution to guitarists around the solid world. Known for his highly emotional style with the aim of not playing very fast or very strong, but with more soul and emotion possible. With “Lucille” (Guitar King), he developed a musical ability that sounded like the guitar itself sang and wept. His music has come a long way since the early masters of the blues, but throughout his career, the music always seems to be just dripping with emotion. If the emotion is the measure of success of blue and B. B. King it is certainly the king.

The Master, God, and Rocker:
In the 1960s, there was a musical revolution going where blue old records were discovered by the younger generation. This impact has stimulated the development of some of the most influential artists of all time. Not generally classified as blues musicians, their contributions to the genre can not be ruled out.

In the late 60s, perhaps the greatest guitarist that one will live or came upon the scene: Jimi Hendrix. Hendrix’s music was firmly in the area of rock and roll in the late 1960s, but his way of playing the guitar is designed around the game of the masters of the past. emotional and expressive Hendrix was known for making elaborate stage outs and monsters jams, including noise solos, jam sessions, playing with his teeth and lighting his guitar on fire. However, in the most basic of blue Hendrix songs could do mourn his guitar, fainting or mourn at will depending on the emotions of the song. Although not primarily a blues player, Jimi Hendrix and other artists, has helped revitalize the blues, jazz and rock introduce new concepts and expand the genre while remaining faithful to her.

The God:
Seen by many as a guitar god in his time, Eric Clapton and his music is responsible for most of the blues revival of the 1960s a pure blues, the music of Clapton is faithful to the original format of electric blues more often, it also expands to include the flavors of the country, reggae, psychedelia and folk. With Cream, Derek and the Dominos and 70s solo albums Clapton promised to keep a part of the rock and roll of the best known and blues solos of all time. New Classical making Robert Johnson as “crossroads” has contributed to a new generation discover the great artists of the past. If you are new to the blues or not, when it comes to memorable and powerful guitar playing, no doubt that “Clapton is God.”

In addition to the 1960s was another young blues player to consider gender as a basis for a new form of music. Jimmy Page and Led Zeppelin Stage powerful and emotional blues rock and opened the way for the first heavy metal artists. Led Zeppelin was faithful to the tradition of the blues, but unlike Clapton, Led Zeppelin Jimi Hendrix picked up where left when he died. their amps turned to ten and played strong, spicy versions of traditional blues and rewrote songs with his own heavy rock and roll. Led Zeppelin has proven to be a major force through the 1970s, led by Jimmy Page guitar work, which ranged from folk blues and traditional folk through heavy that pioneering blues, all the way to the first metal and hard rock sounds. Although innovative, it is difficult to overlook the context of traditional blues that underlies most of the songs of Led Zeppelin. Even in the biggest musical acts to follow suit, there are traces of the influence of the blues.

These three artists represent three of my favorite artists of all time. Although they are well known and mainstream classic rock, the three have had a profound effect on how the blues consider future generations that are often overlooked.

After the breakup of Led Zeppelin, blues continued with the support of some of his brothers classic rock (Aerosmith, AC / DC), but not as many new bands. In the 1980s, however, there was a new guitarist on the scene to revitalize and inspire a new generation of blues artists. Stevie Ray Vaughan both reinvented and revived the blues in the 80s and 90s with a style of blues, Texas, which combines traditional forms of blues with a new design and pieces of jazz flourishes Texas, helped restore Vaughan usual blue. Although his career was cut short, his influence was enormous to help remember rock guitarists like blues was where it all began. His music was a revival of blues music, but everyone has shown that not only do mourn the blues, but it can make you clap your hands, stomp your feet and dance like rock and roll. Stevie Ray Vaughan is a must for any blues fan or budding guitarist.

1990 and 2000 saw both the birth and death of grunge and the recent revival rock more places. When it comes to grunge Kurt Cobain was the driving force. While grunge was a mixture of styles, his heart is an emotional and powerful style as blues. Writing Cobain was as emotional as any artist of blues and was almost as influential. His band, Nirvana, was known to cover Led Zeppelin and even Leadbelly in his day, demonstrating that although grunge lacked some of the swagger and traditional blues feeling, both were somehow cut from the same cloth. With the revival of garage rock post grunge era there was a new band in mind. The White Stripes are the blue that pushed both into new territory and the circle. With its stripped and covers some of the early blues musicians (Son House, Leadbelly), white stripes are actually back to the roots of blues music. At the same time, guitarist Jack White uses a lot of saturated guitars and a rasp, minimalist reminiscent of the early days of punk (the Stooges, Velvet Underground, the Ramones). This combination makes these early blues artists and presents them in a new way, as Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page did in previous years. The White Stripes have actually coined a new earth and rock and roll returned from blues roots suddenly. Although these two groups are not traditional blues, listen to blues influences both of them and listen to their music is what drives me back to my form of original blues artists.
