“His full artistry comes from the incredible speed of his fingering“
Folks down around Texarkana way say, “Give ole Lightnin’ Red anything with strings on it an’ he’ll sure as hell play it.” Red’s picking is naturally slanted to country with a blues flavour. This is his bag! His use of wah-wah and other electronic gear is employed to the fullest measure – but his full artistry comes from the incredible speed of his fingering. Listen to his fingers pushing notes through his amplifiers. You’ll soon know why he is called Lightnin’ Red – Super Guitar.
