Icon47 Pat Thrall 1973 Improvising Rock Guitar Vol. 1


I came across this lost gem today during my travels, "Improvising Rock Guitar Vol. 1", which was first published in 1973 and then reissued in 1981.

It features Pat Thrall on guitar and members from his original San Francisco based band, "Cookin' Mama" accompanying him; Tom Thompson (Bass), Jesse Harms (keys) and his brother, Preston Thrall (drums). As you know, Jesse Harms, joined Pat and Glenn for some of their live Hughes/Thrall gigs in 1982.

Of the 3 tracks included, there are 2 featuring Pat and the band, "Homage To Hendrix" and "Shaker".

Enjoy

Update:
Pat Thrall also recently made this available via his Facebook profile

What an under-appreciated talent Pat Thrall is. Loved his playing from my first listen to 'Go For What You Know' back when it was first released... and I'm still searching for any instances of his performances. Thanks for posting this!

Hello there ! i'm new to the forum........and it's a long story to tell, how i arrive there....

First of all i'm a huge fan of Glen & pat, but to be honest i was seeking desperately for the
recording version of improvising rock guitar i bought in the 90's and due to several translocation i lost the small "plastic vinyl" and hoooo God it was the first edition of 1973 (my birth year!!!)...........So it seems that i need to post 10 messages to be able to dowload your files and hope it'll be the mp3 of the holy recordings!!!!!

Could you please help me????

thanks a lot and sorry for my "school english" i'm just a frog!!!!

Bless you all. Pedro

Improvising Rock Guitar

This is a classic! Thank you for finding it. You rock!

I can remember the day I got this book like it was yesterday, however, it was decades ago.

Thank you for inspiring and teaching me.

This book literally changed my life! It opened the door to guitar playing for me.

This is fantastic! I got this book in 1980 when I was 14 and learned how to play from it. I never thought I'd see it again after my "friend" gave it to someone. Thanks so much for posting this!

This gives you a bit of an insight to how he developed his groove/chops style that you can instantly recognize.

I learned the boxes too. It took me ages to remember them and seemed so hard at the time. How times change.

Improvising Rock guitar

Me too - I remember Homage to Hendrix. Didn't sound like a Hendrix tune but the playing style was his.

I remember this well - a friend of mine had it in the '80s but Jimi was on the cover. Don't know if that was the reissue or the original. We had a band and I always wanted them to include Homage to Hendrix in the set list but they wouldn't because it was an 'exercise'. Wallies! It was a great tune!

The man's a genius!

I had the one with Hendrix on the cover. It has been at least 30 years since I've seen it. Great find!

Great book

That book and record was really my first guitar teacher. I wonder how many guitarists Pat "taught" with that book. It was groundbreaking.

Re-live Rock Guitar

Thanks David so much for putting these files up for download. I feel like I've been transported back in a time capsule about 35 years!!! How the memories make it seem just like yesterday as I appreciate the riffs all over again!
