Ohh my…

…isn’t this just a masterful bit of guitar work. I mean, Hendrix’s original was sweet enough but…whoa! Stevie Ray Vaughn absolutely masters this cover of Little Wing.

    Loved SRV and loved Jimi. It’s amazing the fat notes they coax from their stratocasters.

      You know, I’ve never listened to either guitarist enough to become a fan. Hmmm… I should spend some more time with them. If this song is any indication, I’m missing out on some exquisite music.

    The Blues is a perfect genre of music to listen to with a friend, on a summer’s evening, on your front porch while cracking a few beers and cooking some tender meat on a red hot barbie. This song is thrilling and just soars. I have a few of SRV’s songs on my ipod; check out his version of the Beatle’s Taxman and The Sky is Crying. Stevie died in a helicopter crash. His music shines on. Thanks for posting!

    The blues is also great for dancing on the grass with a couple hundred other people — not too far from the beer tent — for a whole weekend in Vancouver’s David Lam Park. This, of course, would be during the Vancouver International Jazz Festival’s last weekend ’round the end of every June. A yummy weekend for blues fans.

    But there’s blues, and then there’s this transcendant performance of a spectacularly beautiful song. :)
