The incredible 13 years old derek trucks opening for the allman brothers band tearing up "layla". on june 8, 1979, derek trucks came into our world and it wasn’t long before he grew into the guitar phenomenon that he is today. trucks bought his first guitar at a garage sale for $5 at age 9 and was playing his first paid gig by age 11. he gravitated toward playing slide because his talent was growing faster than his young hands. trucks is the nephew of longtime allman brothers drummer butch trucks. he displays a command of slide guitar styles running the gamut from blues to classic r&b and early rock & roll to classic jazz. although blues players like buddy guy, elmore james, and duane allman have been a strong influence on trucks' slide guitar playing. trucks has become a major player not only on the jam band scene but also in early 21st century rock music. in 2010 he formed the tedeschi trucks band with his wife, blues singer, guitarist susan tedeschi. his music is rooted in blues and rock, embracing jam band, southern rock, and jazz. trucks plays an eclectic blend of blues, soul, jazz, rock, qawwali music (a genre of music from pakistan and eastern india), latin music, and other kinds of world music. trucks became a fan of hindustani classical musician ali akbar khan, known for his virtuosity in playing the sarod and popularising indian classical music in the west, often in conjunction with sitar maestro ravi shankar. trucks studied at the ali akbar college of music in san rafael, california. trucks often plays the guitar in an open e tuning, using a dunlop blues bottle slide. 🎸❤

Eric clapton performing the derek and the dominos classic layla🤘 this song is about george harrison's wife, pattie. she and clapton began living together in 1974 and married in 1979. clapton and harrison remained good friends, with george playing at their wedding along with paul mccartney and ringo starr. clapton left her for actress lory del santo (with whom he had his son, conor) in 1985. in an article published in the guardian december 13, 2008, pattie said: "i wasn't so happy when eric wrote 'layla,' while i was still married to george. i felt i was being exposed. i was amazed and thrilled at the song - it was so passionate and devastatingly dramatic - but i wanted to hang on to my marriage. eric made this public declaration of love. i resisted his attentions for a long time - i didn't want to leave my husband. but obviously when things got so excruciatingly bad for george and me it was the end of our relationship. we both had to move on. layla was based on a book by a 12th-century persian poet called nizami about a man who is in love with an unobtainable woman. the song was fantastically painful and beautiful. after i married eric we were invited out for an evening and he was sitting round playing his guitar while i was trying on dresses upstairs. i was taking so long and i was panicking about my hair, my clothes, everything, and i came downstairs expecting him to really berate me but he said, 'listen to this!' in the time i had taken to get ready he had written "wonderful tonight." #layla #ericlapton #facesofrock1 #derekandthedominos #classicrock #jimihendrix #jimmypage #georgeharrison #davidgilmour #derektrucks #pinkfloyd #keithrichards #bbking #bluesguitar #thebeatles #ledzeppelin #70s #70srock #60s #60srock

Let's wish a happy birthday to our great guitarist mr. doyle bramhall ii born 24 december 1968 is one of the most distinctive guitarists, vocalists, composers, and producers in contemporary music. indeed, none other than eric clapton, with whom bramhall has worked for more than a decade. also he has worked with roger waters and many others. early in his career he was befriended and supported by stevie ray vaughan. when he was 18, bramhall was recruited by jimmie to play with the fabulous thunderbirds. after stevie's tragic death in 1990 bramhall ii and charlie sexton formed the arc angels with members from stevie ray vaughan band. in 1996, he released his first solo album "doyle bramhall ii". bramhall played on clapton's "riding with the king", a collaboration with bb king. in 2001, bramhall released "welcome" with his new band, smokestack. in the following years, bramhall collaborated with artists such as t-bone burnett, elton john, derek trucks, susan tedeschi, gary clark, jr., gregg allman, billy preston, sheryl crow and many more. on september 30, 2016 bramhall released his 4th studio album titled "rich man". bramhall is notable as one of the few guitarists who play with his guitar strung upside-down. he plays left-handed but the guitar is strung upside-down with the high e on the top, and he bends the strings by pulling them downwards rather than upwards, the customary approach like albert king, eric gales and otis rush. and our legendary guitar solo of the day is the solo performed in "dogs" by bramhall. dogs" is a song by english progressive rock band pink floyd, released on the album animals in 1977. this song was one of several to be considered for the band's "best of" album echoes: the best of pink floyd.🎂🎸🎄
