Stevie Ray Vaughan
Stevie Ray Vaughan is certainly one of the greatest guitarists of all time. He was an amazing sense of melody. Stevie was able to use the five-note scale – pentatonics in a simple but also ingenious way. He used it in most of his compositions, which he kept mainly in the blues convention.
At the age of 17, Stevie decided to become a professional musician, and he dropped out of school. He played in many garage bands, however, he was popular with the group “Double Trouble”, with which he appeared in 1982 at the festival in Mountreux. After the performance, the group signed a contract with the record label Epic, which allowed it to publish a few very good albums in a further period of time.
Stevie Ray Vaughan’s short career had its tragic finale – on August 27, 1990, after a concert in East Troy, Wisconsin, Vaughan and a group of other musicians were to be transported by a helicopter to Chicago. Unfortunately, this never happened, because the machine fell shortly after the start.
