Blue Wind by Jeff Beck

    Featured Video Play Icon

    Nobody can quite sound like Jeff Beck. He’s always had his own distinct style. Once a rival of the likes of Clapton and Hendrix, Beck continues to explore music through mostly instrumental albums. “Blue Wind” is from the 1976 album “Wired”.

    The main Riff

    This riff is in 4/4 time except for the 2nd measure in which we switch to 2/4 time (only 2 beats).

    Notice that the 4th measure mirrors the 1st measure, but with the addition of bends. This is typical Jeff Beckism. Getting it to sound right may be tricky because it relies on precise bending.
