I recently attedned the Eric Clapton Crossroads Guitar Festival and got the chance to listen to a large amount of amazing artists, one of them including Derek Trucks and his band, The Derek Trucks Band. Derek Trucks plays and amazing mix of blues, jazz mixed with eastern influences on the slide guitar. His guitar is always overdriven to give an amazing warmth feel, and combined with the slide guitar, incredibly quick fingers and amazing skills, Derek Trucks really blew me away and converted me into a life long fan.
I was checking out some of the 2007 Crossroads videos, some of which my sister posted, and stumbled upon some Derek Trucks solos and was once again amazed. Here are some of the videos on youtube that I found were just amazing.
