Description

The social and personal problems found their way into the music and started to change the Blues on a profound level. The 120 songs composed and arranged and recorded by Chris Rea with his friends are so authentic and deeply felt, it is a 'Gesamtkunstwerk' like nothing else. This is a little add-on to the overall collection of music, some kind of making-of the Dancing Down the Stony Road album that Rea released in 2002, following the wake of his disease, his split with the record company and the process of coming to terms with his new style of music.

The original, primitive influences are no longer recognizable, replaced by a calmer, smoother, more polished, yet nonetheless still recognizable, style of Blues. As per the original BM design, the Special is equipped with six white-capped slider switches controlling individual pickup on/off and phase reversal, providing a vast range of tonal variations.The result of a unique collaboration between Sir Brian May, his long-standing guitar tech Pete Malandrone, and House Music, the best-selling BMG Special combines the distinctive aesthetics and sound of the legendary Red Special with a wealth of modern appointments and superb quality, production-line craftsmanship. The natural appearance of the Blue Series is further accentuated by the combination of our semi-matte Open-Pore Finish and fine adornments featuring a walnut rosette and faux tortoise binding and pickguard.

Whether you’re into the cool, vintage look or you prefer the sleek metallic and modern fade finishes, you’ll find them here! With over 20 pickup setting options, it's certainly one of the most tonally versatile guitars on the market!Modern replicas of the vintage '60s Burns design units that are so fundamental to the Red Special's powerful sonic character, the three series-wired, single-coil pickups feature the same retro-styling and magnet alignment as the originals. All the foundations of the trademark BM sound are present and correct, with construction, pickups and electronics faithfully reproducing the original's unique character and tonal versatility.

Having used this guitar over a period of several months - most extensively during show work for "We Will Rock You" - we're happy to report that the tones available are not only unique but also very reminiscent of Brian's own.Used for various solos (check out his lead licks on "Brighton Rock"), it's a thick sound with a specific bite that's great for soloing (eg. Racism and the KKK made the situation even worse, which reflected in the music, instrumentation gradually changed and the lyrics told stories of fear ("KKK Blues"), aimless wandering ("Walkin' Country Blues"), alcoholism ("Too Much Drinkin'"), but also the flight from prevailing conditions, maybe with another perspective for life and the future in the big cities ("Ticket for Chicago"). As well as fulfilling everything you need on the sound and playability fronts, you have to look the part too. A superb demo of the Brian May Guitars SPECIAL from young, Brazilian guitar ace Lucas Vianna, a performer in the 2016 São Paulo and 2017 Danish touring productions of the smash hit Queen musical "We Will Rock You". saw the release of a 2-CD "best of" compilation Blue Guitars: A Collection of Songs, [5] which with individual albums can be also found in digital format.
