Robben Ford: 12 bar Blues Improvisation

Robben Ford

Robben Ford (born December 16, 1951)[1] is an American blues, jazz and rock guitarist. He was a member of the L.A. Express and has collaborated with Miles Davis, Joni Mitchell, George Harrison and KISS. He was named one of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of the 20th Century" by Musician magazine.


Robben Ford uses Dumble Amplifiers and Celestion G12-65 speakers. When traveling abroad he uses Fender Super Reverb amplifiers along with a Zendrive overdrive pedal by Hermida Audio. Sometimes he plays a vintage 1960 Fender Telecaster, Gibson Les Pauls or a guitar custom-made by Taku Sakashta.[8] Currently, Ford travels with just two vintage guitars: a 1966 Epiphone Riviera (with the original Bigsby trem removed and replaced with a stop tailpiece) and the 1960 Fender Telecaster.[9]
