Blues Driver BD-2 by BOSS (pedal review / test)

Pedal Frenzy by Have Guitar!

It is not new but it’s a classic – the BOSS Blues Driver BD-2. A well placed product that came out around the time of the ‘blues boom’ of the mid 90’s. It’s an overdrive for the blues players and many others…

There’s really not much more to say, watch the video – I hope you’ll like it! If you do, support me with a subscription!

Guitar Backing Track #8 in B – Slow Blues 80 BPM

Have Guitar is happy to give you another backing track for guitar solo practise. This one is clearly inspired by Led Zeppelin but not a straight off clone. It’s slow moving in 80 BPM, kinda heavy and veeeery groovy, baby. Did I mention its blues? No? Well it is but not trad blues.

All guitars & base played by Magnus Cassersjö. Addictive Drums 2 arranged by Magnus Cassersjö. Keyboard by Christer Sundh. Recorded and mixed in Reaper.

I hope you liked this video/backing track, please do subscribe to Have Guitar to give my little channel Some support. It’s all free of course and just takes a click on the sub-button… As always – a very Big thanks to all of you already subscribing!

This backing track is available with or without commentary, see the videos linked below the text.
