The day like this, the Blues Genius was born. Happy Birthday to Our legendary guitarist Mr. T- BONE WALKER ( Aaron Thibodaux ) born 28 May 1910 d.16 March 1975 was a critically acclaimed American Blues guitarist, singer, songwriter and multi instrumentalist, who was an influencial pioneer and innovator of the Jump Blues and Electric Blues sound. Modern electric blues guitar can be traced directly back to this Texas-born pioneer, who began amplifying his sumptuous lead lines for public consumption circa 1940 and thus initiated a revolution so total that its tremors are still being felt today.
Few major postwar blues guitarists come to mind that don't owe T-Bone Walker an unpayable debt of gratitude. B.B. King has long cited him as a primary influence, marveling at Walker's penchant for holding the body of his guitar outward while he played it. He won a Grammy Awards for Best Ethnic or Traditional Folk Recording in 1971 for Good Feelin' . Walker was posthumously into the Blues Hall of Fame in 1980, and the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame in 1987. Chuck Berry named Walker and Louis Jordan as his main influences. BB King cited hearing Walker's recording of "Stormy Monday" as his inspiration for getting an electric guitar. Walker was admired by Jimi Hendrix, who imitated Walker's trick of playing the guitar with his teeth. "Stormy Monday"was a favorite live number of the Allman Brothers band. No amount of written accolades can fully convey the monumental importance of what T-Bone Walker gave to the blues. He was the idiom's first true lead guitarist, and undeniably one of its very best. He was really genius blues guitarist and musician. #tbonewalker #bbking #allmanbrothers #allmanbrothersband #jimihendrix #guitarist #guitars #guitar #greatguitarist #bluesmaster #bluesguitarist #bluesguitar #blues #blueslegend #electricblues #texasblues #jumpblues #guitarsdaily #guitarspotter #guitargod #guitarporn #chicagoblues #chuckberry #ukulele #banjo #westcoastblues #mandolin #gibsonguitars #hollowbodyguitar #gibsonsofinstagram

It's another day to celebrate! I love celebrations! Today is the 117th anniversary of the birth of one of the true pioneers of electric blues. T-Bone Walker was born on this date in 1910, and started performing at age 18. He continued performing and recording until we lost him in 1975. He was a powerful songwriter and singer. But even more impactful was his early use of electric guitar with his recordings. There are several guitarists who claim to have been the first to utilize the amplified sound, and I don't care to get into that discussion. I just know that T-Bone is one of my favorite Texas blues players of all time. This was his first 12 inch lp, and it is a compilation of his great early recordings. Included here are unforgettable classics including Stormy Monday and the T-Bone Shuffle. This is such a moving and exciting collection that I will enjoy with this fantastic local #craftbeer #ipa from Minneapolis brewer #bauhaus. Happy Memorial Day everyone! #lowertown #saintpaul #tbonewalker #tboneshuffle #stormymonday #texasblues #electricblues #vinyloftheday #vinylcommunity #vinylcollector #vinylcollection #vinyllove #vinylrecords #vinyladdict #recordnerd #recordlover #recordoftheday #recordcollector #recordcollection
