The Thrill is Gone

This video is a tribute to BB King who just passed away this week. I often encourage my students to learn this song when they want to explore the blues or want to hear a great example of good phrasing and improvisation that is simple yet effective and extremely expressive. That being said I’ve never actually performed this song as a guitarist or singer so this was just off the cuff and I know I didn’t do it the justice it deserves. Nonetheless, I wanted to do something to honor such a great musician. R.I.P Mr. King….
