For the past three decades, the singer-songwriter has been seizing control of his inspiration and turning it into hits. Much of the fuel for his latest album, Raise Vibration , stemmed from his ire at Trump-era ultra-conservatism and his need to spread a message of love. Here, he breaks down 15 songs from throughout his career and explains how they tell his life story. I loved the phrase. It just hit me.
1. Are You Gonna Go My Way – Are You Gonna Go My Way (1993)
Greatest Hits is a greatest hits album by American rock musician Lenny Kravitz , released on October 24, The album features an unreleased track for promotion called " Again " which became a hit, reaching number 4 on the Billboard Hot , following a very successful string of hits from the album 5. Kravitz reported in an interview for VivaMusic. The tracks were sequenced by Kravitz's engineer, Henry Hirsch.
Are You Gonna Go My Way?
Lenny Kravitz is one such person. So, here are five key Kravitz tracks that all guitarists can learn something from. Armed with a Gibson Flying V for the video and a unison riff that would become his calling card, the lead single from his third album gives you a perfect cross-section of Lenny Kravitz. First up is that riff - sounds simple, but the timing of the string bends and pull-offs create an integral part of the rhythmic phrasing that you need to get right. By this point, Lenny had made guitarist Craig Ross an integral part of his live band, also draughting him in during studio sessions on some songs. Ross takes the solo while Lenny holds the anticipated-accents on the rhythm part, which is also an excellent use of a flanger - on the entire mix as well as the guitar! But what about nailing that fuzzy guitar sound?
They are perfect ear candy — unrepentantly retro rock and soul that stops just short of being blatantly derivative of any specific song or artist. In each instance, Kravitz was able to create a fully realized homage to the greatest classic-rock station in the world, co-mingling the power of Zeppelin and Hendrix with the velvety swing of Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye. Lenny Kravitz also has 80 bad songs. I could go on for at least another 78 tracks, but you get the idea. However, in defiance of simple math, I generally like Lenny Kravitz because of those three great songs. For whatever reason, I care about those tunes more than the mountain of garbage Lenny has also created.
