Love, love love this. I'm a huge fan of blues guitar and I've tried to emulate Gary Moore but failed miserably. This guy is fantastic. Thank you.

Ah Gary Moore... Tried Walkways of Paris awhile back, really loved it but tried to play sax when they sang and it sort of sounded rough. Anyway here it is .

I recall forum member Taz posting a version of a Gary Moore tune a number of years back (?) ..."Still Got The Blues..." perhaps...?

Very interesting, this guy is a great player in lmany styles.
"Jason Gay, born in Wash DC, began performing professionally at the age of 16 touring up and down the east coast with youth dramatic acting and musical group. After attending Berklee college of music and later"

Jason made a study of tons of blues guitarists, including of the best IMO, Derek Trucks

Thank you for posting this.

It's intersting to see and hear that the technique to play along with recordings is still in use. That was what I did a lot when I started to play.

I like to play with guitarists that play slide. Heavy vibrato, note bending, the naccessary repeatation, lift it to the upper part of the saxophone, push like a compressor, don't be afriad if you crackle, .... in other words forget most of what your teacher told. My best teacher was a rock and blues guitar man. "Think guitar and play sax" he told me.

I like J.T. Brown (Elmore James), Eddie Shaw (Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf ) and A:C. Reed (Albert Collins. Bonnie Riatt all from the Chicago sax blues school. We are not soo many that listen to these players today. Sax Gordon is probably on the best to play in the style of these "honkers".

Listen to J,T brown playing on Elmore James "Madison Blues"
