Great Guitar Solos – Stevie Wonder and Jeff Beck Play Superstition

Ah, Jeff Beck. One of the all-time greats. His playing is phenomenal and amazing.

Superstition has an interesting history, in that Stevie Wonder kinda sorta wrote it for Jeff Beck, who released it. Then almost immediately after, Stevie Wonder released it. So, of course, it makes a lot of sense for Jeff Beck to join Stevie Wonder for this amazing song (one of my all-time favorite songs, in fact), and Jeff’s soloing on guitar (and Stevie’s on piano) is incredible.

The guitar solo starts at 1:27 and ends at 2:22. And yes, there’s video to watch, here…

    It’s a shame Beck and Wonder never did an album together, only a few sporadic songs. Beck once said Wonder is one of the few singers he wanted to record with. Our loss that it never happened.

    “It’s often been said that Jeff Beck is one of the leading guitarists in the world, and I’m inclined to agree with him.”
    -- Chris Dreja, “Roger The Engineer” album liner notes

    I’ve been a lifelong fan of Beck and put him above his contemporaries (including Brian May) for his taste and efficiency with notes. He can play flashy, but only does when it suits the song. As a Les Paul fan, I really loved Beck’s work with Imelda May during the Les Paul Tribute. It was aural ecstasy.
