Kirk Lorange & Wild Horse Pinot Noir

Kirk Lorange is an outstanding slide guitarist, little known outside of his home country Australia. He’s not new to the scene having been a professional guitarist since the late sixties. While he’s played in a plethora of musical groups, I think he’s best known for his teaching techniques, particularly for his book and videos, Plane Talk, and a website,  that has over 100,000 subscribers. His acoustic work is amazing, but his electric tone and slide work is killer. If you want to learn a few licks, sit down and watch. Enjoy!

Yuppy Blues:

Blackwood strut:

Never mind the rain:

Come a long way:

Rust red dust:

Sixteen twenty-five:

Little wing improv:

The water is wide:

Georgia on my mind:

Scratch my itch:

Three piece suit: 

Salt wind:

Slow blues:

Stormy Monday:

I’m going to recommend a 2007 Wild Horse Pinot Noir to go with Kirk. It has distinct floral notes in the aroma along with a bit of strawberry and cherry. In the mouth it opens with intense flavors of black raspberry, cranberry, and strawberry and finishes with a bit of rhubarb. Wild Horse is low on acid, rich and soft with a ripe, yet fresh feel. Very nice at $23.00. So pour yourself a glass, plant yourself in front of your computer screen with a guitar in your lap, your preference of a glass or metal slide on your pinky, and try playing some blues. Enjoy!

It's awesome how he walks through the bass line and blends the rhythm and lead into the slide. Good stuff!
