This video tutorial will teach you to play blues on an electric guitar like Rory Gallagher. Rory Gallagher was born and raised in the south of Ireland and was inspired by seeing Elvis on the television. Rory then got hold of his first acoustic guitar at nine years old.
Rory disliked the 'cabaret' element required to keep dance hall owners happy, so he struck out with his own band, Taste, in early 1967. Following the Hamburg club circuit in the tradition of The Beatles, the band built a strong following at home and abroad, with John Lennon becoming a high-profile fan along the way.
Rory's solo career saw him tour the world many times and record numerous successful albums. The examples in the video are inspired by his mid 70s playing.
