Not to be confused with: Freddie King, Freddie Mercury,
Peter Green, Grant Green or Green Day…
Today I want to talk about a dude called Freddie Green.
If you’re a jazz cat, you may already
know who he is.
For the uninitiated, he was a jazz
and big-band guitarist and played
with Count Bassie.
His contribution to guitar?
He really pioneered the use
of the so-called “fat chords”,
which use the low E string,
and the D and G strings.
Here’s a lesson on our blog
about his style (with tabs):
If you’ve never tried playing in this style
it can be quite fun and different.
Hope you enjoy it and the rest of your weekend as well…
