Free Music Friday #89: Dust Bowl

Thanks to a Tweet from @JayeRHill last week, I was alerted to another free download from Joe Bonamassa. (Do I need to remind you of how much I like Joe Bonamassa?)

Jaye thought the free offer was time limited to last weekend but the good news is, it looks like it's not to late to get it. Just go to the Dust Bowl Download page, enter an email address and within a few minutes you could be downloading a track from his still to be released album.

And what a track it is! It is
outstandingly good. Wonderful bass line, twanging guitar riff and some great solos from Mr Bonamassa.

My only problem with the track is, the twanging guitar. It's not that I don't like it. Quite the reverse. I really like it. It's just that it reminds me of something else... but I can't place what it reminds me of. Most annoying.

Twang, twang, dwanggg!

I keep singing it to myself in the hope that I'll remember but so far, no joy. Can anyone help me out?

That aside, I cannot recommend this track highly enough. Very much looking forward to hearing the rest of this album.

Suggestions from Jaye via Twitter:

In answer to your Twang twang question,might be "Wanted- Dead or Alive" by Bon Jovi,or the start of most songs by The Cult ;-)

My response:

Re: twanging guitar. Bon Jovi suggestion - def. not what I'm thinking of. Cult - I'll need to re-listen to a few before deciding!
