G & Co. - The Stevie II Leather Strap
Handmade in Sau Paulo Brazil
Description from G & Co.
Stephen "Stevie" Ray Vaughan was born in 1954, in Dallas, Texas.
In the 1980s, pop music was on the rise and the blues guitar was miles away from conventional music.
He was an important figure of Texas Blues, a musical style characterized by swing and the fusion of blues and rock.
He absorbed the styles of almost all great blues guitarists - with the addition of Jimi Hendrix and a lot of jazz and rockabilly -, and his monstrous tone, laid-back virtuosity and impeccable swinging character made the “Pride and bass” line Joy ”sounded as strong as metal.
Stevie was a master of many of the techniques associated with the Blues, such as vibrato, bending, phrasing, groove and more. Usually he would tune his halftone guitar to Eb. Initially the main reason for this was to facilitate his vocal range, but it also made it easier to use heavier strings (0.13).
Stevie was certainly one of those musicians that influences were assimilated and then mixed to create his distinct musical voice.
Vaughan is in the same company as BB King and Eric Clapton. And even after his death in 1990 in a helicopter accident, he inspires multiple generations of guitarists like Mike McCready of Pearl Jam, John Mayer and Gary Clark Jr.
