One of my many influences. Great guitar player and great man. What a shame his life ended so soon.

The Sweet Home Chicago from that night, with Clapton, Cray, Guy, and Jimmie Vaughan is spine tingling good...SRV just takes over. He was the best guitarist in the WORLD during his last notes ever played.

Now how's that for a Fender promotion, huh? the Vaughan brothers, Clapton, Cray, and Buddy Guy?

I've been trying to master that technique he does when he, like, strums over muted strings after he plays a note of the riff.

An example would be during the intro to Pride and Joy...where he getts that heavy, throaty, kinda sound by damping the strings and strumming them on the upstrokes. I just can't get it down.

Clapton, Duane, Betts, Toy, BB, Muddy, Albert King, Otis Rush, Charlie D., soo many more are GIBSON people.......but dammed if Stevie almost convince me to switch. He was absolutely one of the best ever, ever. Maybe my #2 behind Brother Duane. Too close to call. I miss him.

After seeing SRV at the Tower in Philly, we go back to our Hotel to hang out. After a few drinks we get on the elevator. Up we go, the door opens and in walks SRV holding that beat to **** Fender. Door closes and up we go, my friend looks at him and says'I know you from somewhere" SRV says"I was just thinkin the same about you" Door opens and my friend says "Can I touch it?" SRV says I"I hope you mean my Fender" We all laugh shake his hand and we on are way! Yeah my friend touched it

This man and Duane are my two fav guitarists for
sure. Wonder what the state-of-the-blues would
be had not Stevie come along and led the resurgence
that developed in the '80s. Would the eventual ABB
reunion that occured in '89 have ever happened ?
Not if the promoters and money-men didn't think it
marketable. SRV showed everyone that the blues had
a lot of life yet.

anyway... here is a vid from youtube... bunch of his stuff on there... most of it you'll have (if you have the DVD's)... but here it is...

I was lucky enough to see Stevie live about 10 times or so, I remember Gregg opening up for him for time to time, but the one story I love to tell when Stevie played my college in May of 1984. I was on the concert staff. so I blew off classes to catch the sound check. The band was on the stage and Stevie walks in. They play one tune together and the band splits and Stevie stays on the stage and by himself played for another 20 minutes in front of me and maybe two other people. It was wild. I wish I could remember what he played, I know it was others peoples stuff. Afterward, I got my Texas Flood album signed and he posed for a picture and talked music for a couple of mintues. A great guitar player and a great guy too.

Always thought about this myself.

My biggest regret was only seeing him live once, and that was opening for the Who.


He was incredible.

I only got to see Stevie once about a month before he died. It was a show at Jones Beach, a double bill with Joe Cocker. A friend's friend backed out the day of the show. That's how I got to see Stevie Ray Vaughan. I was very fortunate and greatful that my friend's buddy backed out.

I love SRV more than anyone.

I'll be at the Beacon gigs in my SRV t-shirt that I always gig in.

Texas Flood was the first album I ever owned, everytime I play it it's like the first time I ever heard it.

If I could only own 2 albums Texas Flood and Filmore East is all I need for a lifetime of great listening.

Carl - I have been chasing SRV tones my whole life - this is just my suggestion (how I get it to sound the way my ear wants to hear it) - when you are pulling those muted upstrokes - don't mute, for my money it's a full open rake with a very quick stop/muting of the strings. And agressive too - or like a snap.

Kind of hard to explain in words - it's about the best thing I can do of trying to emulate anything of Stevie's. I love playing that rhythm - I can sit on it all day.

I think the thing that clicked with it for me mentally was the little snippet from one of the 'Stevie Talks' tracks where he is talking about the rhythm of the blues and mentions a horse walkin' down the street.

That's what I think I'm playin' when I play that and it helps me get in the right groove for it.

Like playing a heart beat a la lightenin' hopkins - (hammer on/off on E/open D).

Sorry for the ramble - don't get me started on SRV.

Rest in peace Stevie.

Life without you rips me to bits.

His solo after the talk bit he does - I have some live versions of that where he just tears it to shreds.

He just played with his heart on his sleave though - you can listen to so many examples of it - you can hear his soul.

How much other music is there like that around.

Yes, Stevie Ray was in fact the greatest white blues guitarist of all time. Hands down.
I saw him several times (any time he came to the Dayton, Ohio area) between '83 and '90. He was always on and never had a bad show. I have heard and read many stories about him and his legendary playng abilities and he seemed to never have an off night or played without 100% enthusiasm . I took my youngest son to his first concert and it was Stevie and Joe Cocker. It was about two months before the crash and he never looked or played better.

He was, and still is, my favorite. And, man do I miss him...

As a teenager heavily into Metal in the 80's I was floored watching SRV's Cold Shot video. I ran out, bought the album and played it for all my friends. I was hooked and they never got it. My first electric guitar was a black Fender Squire Bullet because SRV played a Fender and I had to have guitar right then. Stevie pushed toward the blues more and thankfully Gregg put out I'm No Angel in '87. I've never looked back to anything else but the Brothers and the blues.

I remember like it was yesterday when the news broke about SRV passing. I sat at my desk stunned and saddened. RIP Stevie Ray!

i firmly belive that Stevie was one of the most spiritual players around, and that can still be felt when you listen to his live shows. The dude has practically jumped through my speakers and smacked my soul clear across the face.....



music for yo'ass.
