You got the tone. You got the style. A great mix of blues and some Dick Dayle surfer riffage in there. Loved it. Thanks!

ziti said 2978 days ago (May 2nd, 2009)
great stuff
yikes!!!

this is just a hoot!!! When did you buy your first stock in Starbucks??

my only nit is my general nit on blues guitar these days...there are too many stevie rays. While I love the strat tone, I think that the stevie strat tone is kinda done to death. The originality of the composition more than makes up for this however, and your playing is superb throughout. This is a really great track.

deep bows my friend

Z, always good to hear from a blues master. Yea I hear ya about the SRV tone, every once in a while I'll try a more warm jazzier tone (Green Mill, The Magnificent mile). Eventually I'd like to pick up a semi hollow and a tele and go for a wider variety of tones. Soon as I get mo money. Thanks again bro.
