Musical Interlude – SRV

Mom asked, while we were in the IOP, who is my favorite musician. Without question, Stevie Ray Vaughan. So a little musical interlude, from a bootleg Tommy gave me years ago, which I think sums up SRV’s musical aesthetic:

“I use heavy strings, tune low, play hard and floor it. Floor it. That’s technical talk.”

So from the Mann Music Center in Philadelphia, “Love Struck Baby,” by Stevie Ray Vaughan.

    badass. i too favor thick strings. don’t do the hendrix/nirvana/srv tune-down thing though…unless playing along with them on the stereo (which is super fun, btw. there are 4-5 Alice in Chains songs too)

    Yes, “Here Comes the Rooster” is one of them.
