Old School Friday: Guitar Solos / Bass Solos

So I didn’t want to do Prince, and I didn’t want to do Jimi Hendrix again, so I decided it was time for my alter ego to shine. I am a complicate woman, and I like a lot of things, and although I am a juke joint baby, I’m also the product of an all girl private school where I was one of only three blacks in my class, and so I have an eclectic and sometimes eccentric mix of music and styles. So check out John and Flea of Red Hot Chili Peppers on the guitar and bass during this song, Under the Bridge.

Under the Bridge

I had to add this artist after coming across his name at Believer 1964. This song always tugs at my heart because of the story behind the song. Listen to the guitar, I can just listen to the instrumentals and be moved. Eric Clapton, Tears In Heaven.

  1. Flea, Anthony Kiedis?! The Red Hot Chili Peppers are hot, and Flea could play that guitar like no one’s business!

    I’m digging it…

  2. Great choice. Jimi was the first to come to mind but then I got funkified.

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Hey, rockers can play those guitars.
    I like some rock, too. I was raised in the projects and went to public school.
    I have heard this song before but, I’m not really familiar with The Red Hot Chilli Peppers (I have heard of them).

    Have a good day.

  4. I love the red hot chilli peppers. I like Rock music (rock and roll baby!). However your choice of Eric Clapton brought tears to my eyes. When his son died this was one way of healing.

    great picks this week..onelove..iriegal

  5. Indeed some eclectic choices and I like that, juke joint baby :) I appreciate that about you. Thanks for edumucating a sista! I was holding my breath when I came over wondering if you were gonna have my pick too :)

  6. I came through earlier & was mad because your selections didn’t work for me, but I’m jammin’ now! :) Oh yeah Red Hot Chili Pepers can jam. I just thought to myself I should have put Queen! Another one bites the dust had a HOT ass bassline. Damn… I’m going to add it. Shhhh….

  7. nice selection, this was my most difficult osf ever

  8. nice choices! i really like the first selection!

  9. Nothing wrong with RHCP!!!

  10. This is one of my favorite ‘Red Hot Chili Peppers’ songs. Flea has got to be one of the best guitarist and bassist out there!?

  11. MrsG. – Great choices. I’ve got those varied musical tastes myself and know the Red Hot Chili Peppers stuff well. They did a cover of Stevie Wonder’s Higher Ground that was off the chain. Correction though – Flea is the Bass player for this band, and a heck of a good one at that. John Frusciante was the guitarist.

    Eric Clapton is one of the best ever on the guitar. Period.

  12. Both great choices. I wanted to post some country music like Willie Nelson, but I didn’t.(don’t laugh)
    Eric Clapton plays a mad guitar.

    I was late in posting, but my choices are up on my blog now; hope you can stop by.

    Have a great weekend.

  13. OOOH girl! The Chili peppers! The best selection for me today! I spent a good part of my life with the “other” persuasion so I grew up with an eclectic/alternative side!!!!
    This is when I fell in love with Anthony Keidis! I had it bad! This song is so hot!
    And I also love Eric Clapton’s “Tears in Heaven”. It was so sad and beautiful at the same time since he wrote this song for his deceased son in the early 90′s.
    Have a great weekend!

  14. @ DP: Thanks, I don’t know the difference between bass or guitar. That’s flea playing the thingy.

  15. Thanks for the link love! Eric Clapton is talented and this song is a good one.
