Then if you play all the wrong notes with all feeling, well it just will sound mangled and awkward to most people for almost every genre of music. You gotta do both.
Youre right, both are important. But it doesnt take much to learn the scales and learn the right notes to play, it just takes some practice. Putting the feeling into it is the hard part, at least for me.

The beginning of texas flood is just some fast licks in a little box. It looks harder than it is. i have been told that im a fast learner for someone who has been playing as short of a time as i have.

SRV's delivery is what was awesome, everyone knows the little blues boxes he used, that's not the trick, it's his tone, attitude and execution that was mind blowing.

Well, also the fact that every phrase oozed with emotion didn't hurt either.

I learned Texas Flood a few months back but cant play it like Stevie and wouldnt want to totally copy him. But its the violent bravado, extreme bends and just being a wizzard on the frettboard that makes Srv's music what it is. I think he put everything into his playing every time he played and thats how you should play.

No im just saying personally its fun to put your own little twist on songs that you cover. Once you figure out your style and way of playing. If you want to play SRV or anyone else note for note be my guest man..idgaf. Now ill leave you with a S K"ish gift....

youre definitely right. but if you want to put your own style on it, you first have to learn how it is originally played. I got a question for you, why do your posts always have that quote, "hendrix didnt even play the blues that well?" Do you agree with that statement?

I haven't been playing very long myself, but from what I can tell, phrasing is the most difficult part to mimic. And people like Hendrix and Vaughan had boatloads of tricks.

It's not a measure of "can you get there?" It's how you do it that counts.

thats true. BB king was the king of phrasing. Memorizing your root notes will help with your phrasing. To me, its not the phrasing that is hard. Coming up with good sounding phrases is the hard part.
