Following in the footsteps of our legendary Fingerstyles guitar library, Hot Steel Blues reveals a soulful Blues attitude with low-down and greasy riffs played by legendary guitarist Terry Robb (Steve Miller, Buddy Guy, John Fahey) and produced by Dan Portis-Cathers (Fingerstyles, Heart of Africa).
You’ll find over 800 phrases divided into Patterns, Melodies and Endings and arranged into Construction Kits that can be assembled and mixed to create complete, seamless tracks. Both “plugged” and “unplugged” styles traverse the entire Blues genre, from Waters to Clapton.
These hi-fi riffs and licks were recorded using top-notch mics and pre-amps. Both acoustic and electric guitars are featured, including a Martin 000-28, a 1920’s Weissenborn lap slide, a Gibson B25 upright slide, a Laguna L-29, a Fender Duo Sonic, and Fender Stratocaster. Both solid state and tube amps were used get that classic, fat and furious sound. This combined with Robb’s unbelievably tasty playing makes Hot Steel Blues the most authentic, and musical, Blues guitar library to date!
