With over 20 pickup setting options, it's certainly one of the most tonally versatile guitars on the market!

These are wired in series (instead of the more common wired in parallel) which means that each pickup turned on increases output volume. Trevor Wilkinson's "Wave" tremolo-bridge provides a striking modern look to the BMG Special as well as smooth, comfortable performance with exceptional stability and sustain. Whether you’re into the cool, vintage look or you prefer the sleek metallic and modern fade finishes, you’ll find them here! He was generous with his instruments and would happily allow the not-remotely-famous play his guitars.audio albums and a DVD comes with a 72-page hardback book including more than 30 paintings, photos, lyrics and an interview with Chris Rea.

Racism and the KKK made the situation even worse, which reflected in the music, instrumentation gradually changed and the lyrics told stories of fear ("KKK Blues"), aimless wandering ("Walkin' Country Blues"), alcoholism ("Too Much Drinkin'"), but also the flight from prevailing conditions, maybe with another perspective for life and the future in the big cities ("Ticket for Chicago"). He and his mrs apparently sang the chorus together as they drove home and he thought "This'll fucking show 'em" and recorded it when he got home. Used for various solos (check out his lead licks on "Brighton Rock"), it's a thick sound with a specific bite that's great for soloing (eg. You probably know the specifics – each pick up has its own on/off switch, and in-phase/out-of-phase switch.

However he also appears to be someone who not only loves the blues but also somebody who understands its history and respects the heritage more than most.

Coinciding with the 60th anniversary of the completion of the Red Special and 20 glorious years since the launch of the Brian May Guitars brand, every BMG Special now comes complete with a FREE 2024 Sir Brian May "Official Queen Pick" in a perspex collector's case.

With the light string gauge and easy playability high up the fretboard, playing the Bo' Rhap solo was a very joyous experience! I attended the Smithsonian's opening reception (and got John Monteleone to sign my Blue Guitar book).Once again, the lyric themes shifted away from known territory and began to reflect the changed situation, drugs, alcohol, sex, women, money gained major importance, life in wintry ghettos and anonymous housing schemes contributed its share. People suddenly found themselves in a completely different situation and this instantly influenced the Blues, the electric style, developed earlier on in Electric Memphis and Texas Blues, remained, however became harder and edgier, instruments like the saxophone were incorporated into the music and gave this new hybrid a sometimes jazzy feel. I'd only known of Chris Rea from "Fool If You Think It's Over" from way back in 1978, when I was in high school, and had, to be honest, forgotten about him since then here in the USA.

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. When the originally African and South-influenced Blues were brought to Louisiana, New Orleans, the Mississippi Delta, new instruments were added – clarinet, brass, piano, mandolins, accordions – and along with the banjo mingled into an interesting mix, which would be known as New Orleans, Swamp, Cajun or Riverboat Blues. Complete your blue guitar with a matching blue guitar strap or add some colour with a patterned strap, red strap or a green strap. The eleven separate records which compose "Blue Guitars" could as well stand on their own; in combination, however, they provide a journey through the different epochs of the Blues, showing the various components that have been added to the original African Blues over time, the changes in instrumentation, style, lyrical expression and thematic implications.All the foundations of the trademark BM sound are present and correct, with construction, pickups and electronics faithfully reproducing the original's unique character and tonal versatility.
