Man, SRV was and is the TRUTH! This tune darn near killed me, but I persevered. The guitar is a Fender Roadhouse Strat, played through a late '60s Bassman head, into a Boogie 2-12" cab. I hadn't played the Strat for years, and was originally going to cut this tune on my Nashville Tele. I love my Tele, but mos def made the right call with the Strat, IMHO.
I am available for private guitar / lap steel lessons in the Atlanta area. If interested, please contact me through my website...Thanks!
