The Top 10 Studio Guest Appearances by Jeff Beck
From Toots & The Maytals to Roger Waters, a look at some of Jeff Beck's best session work.
When a legendary guitarist is invited to play on a recording session, he or she is expected to make a noticeable impact on the song or album being recorded.
Bearing that in mind, Jeff Beck — as a session guitarist — has pretty much never disappointed.
Here are his top 10 guest-session appearances.
10. The Pretenders, “Legalize Me," Viva El Amor (1999)
(Buy on iTunes)
At first, one wonders if Beck is even playing on this song — until just around the 2:14 mark, when he boldly announces his presence with one of his freakish trademark whammy-bar moves — and it only gets better from there.
In Deep with Andy Aledort Presents How to Play in the Style of Jeff Beck is an exclusive DVD. Guitar World editor and instructor Andy Aledort takes a look at the playing style of the legendary Jeff Beck, showing you the scales and lead lines used by Beck in his groundbreaking solo work. It's available now at the Guitar World Online Store.
