About Playlist

To appreciate the full range of guitar expression that hit the world in 1969, start with anything Jimi Hendrix recorded that year—including that famous for-the-ages interpretation of “The Star Spangled Banner” from Woodstock—and then move in any stylistic direction. The Peak Guitar playlist hits on some of the major landmark recordings from that year; with a few exceptions all were created in 1969. It’s a long playlist, but really it’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Peak Guitar

by Tom Moon

If we’re not living it right now—and there’s a solid argument that we might be—then when?

Just imagine what it was like to be studying guitar in 1969. Maybe you concentrated on jazz, but you couldn’t escape Hendrix, or Clapton, or Santana. You had to contend with the freakish John McLaughlin, then evolving at warp speed. At the same moment, of course, some of the most accomplished six-string soloists of all time were walking the earth: traditionalists like Joe Pass and Jim Hall; fleet-fingered newcomers like Pat Martino; soul-jazz stalwarts like Grant Green and Kenny Burrell. And you could also hear some of the most accomplished rhythm guitar timekeepers – Ike Turner, Steve Cropper of the Stax Records house band, Jimmy Nolen with James Brown, João Gilberto.

It was a moment when the inspiration circuit was running extremely hot and when disruption meant not simply rearranging the furniture but building whole new houses. One way to tell just how significant 1969 was as a source of inspiration: Take a peek into what was right around the corner. ZZ Top. Black Sabbath. Derek and the Dominos. Free. Chicago II. James Gang. Deep Purple. Funkadelic (featuring the perpetually under-appreciated Eddie Hazel). Grand Funk Railroad. Stevie Ray Vaughan. George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass. And on and on.
