Nice blues licks
On this one Stratcat. Your tone's a little cleaner on this track which I
think fits this song better and you still throw in the Cry Baby at the end
to give us that Trower fix.

Very Cool
This is a great example of taking a riff, changing it a bit here and ther and expanding on it and then creating a song from it. Nice playing, nice tone.

thanks mcboy
there is a stratcat51, who is an excellent musician, and whos music I enjoy. As
far what guitar I use, why a Fender Strat of course. A 1983 American Strat,
modified with Texas specials pickups. 1983 was a strange year for Strats, they
had those freeflyt tremolos in which strings dont go through body, also the
input jack was where the tone knob is. I had this modified so it resembles the
more common strats, the wood is very heavy though and this guitar has an
excellent tone. Thanks again for the comments.

Breezy...
licks rule. Bill, I'm always impressed by your ear-tickling lead riffs. Great
style. Great tone. Great stuff.

Be well!

I read the song description.

Having spent some time there, yes it is very much Chicago Blues. Good
stuff.

Love the guitar sound!
The playing reminds me of Stevie Ray Vaughan. The riffs and performance are just flowing with energy.

My kinda "blues" for sure. Sounds great!


Thanks for the D/L!
