The 3 kings
Let’s start with the 3 most famous kings. Albert King, B.B. King and Freddie King.
1. Riley B King, also known as B.B. King, one of, if not, the most known and most famous blues legends ever. B.B. Kings name is recognized by many generations due to how long him and his music has been around. He has made a mark in the History of the Blues and has many numerous albums that you can hear him playing his guitars that he named ” Lucille “.
Probably the most noted song that people known B.B. King for best is his version of the song ” The Thrill Is Gone “, originally written by Roy Hawkins and Rick Darnell. The original version was mostly saxophone and piano so when B.B. King played the song on guitar with the emotion he put in to it and the driving bass line combined with his singing style it became his signature song.
Some people think that if music is rock it cannot be Christian and if someone is Christian, they can’t or shouldn’t play rock. I have noticed throughout the years also that a lot of people that are not Christian nor don’t believe in God are put off by Christian music even if it is good. At the same time I find that some Christians are put off by rock music even if it is Christian rock and are completely against secular music. Here I have compiled a list of Christian rock bands and Christian metal bands. I am sure almost everyone whether they listen to Christian rock or not can name at least one band on this list.
Now we will discuss some songs with cool guitar riffs. I am always looking to check out new music, bands, or songs that have memorable guitar melodies or riffs. I am going to list songs that have interesting or catchy guitar parts, intros etc. from the 50s to current.
If anyone has suggestions of songs for me to check out and or / add to the list, or have a genre to add with a song or so from that genre, there is a comment section at the end of this article / bottom of this page. If you want to join in on the discussion at the bottom of this page I encourage you to do so.
