Jazzyjack Stevie Ray Vaughan (28) RE: Stevie Ray Vaughan 28 Jan 03


Interesting what you learn here. Last time I found out that James Taylor's dog was named Hercules. Now I learn that Stevie glued skin onto his tortured fingertips !!.
I checked old threads and yes, there is very little about Stevie. I too missed his coming and going while raising kids, coaching ball and dissing heavy metal, grunge and disco during the 80's. What a shame. I am learning the following tunes in this order; " Pride and Joy ", " Life Without You", " Tightrope " and " Couldn't Stand the Weather ". These tunes are VERY interesting either from the viewpoint of chord progression or cool licks. They are very unlike the BB King, Muddy Waters endless repetition ( sorry guys- my personal take ).And they are fun to play, especially Tightrope. They will cut through any bar scene, a necessary weapon to have in one's arsenal. True there's not much story line but the lyrics are clever enough, beating most tired out blues wailings. Give these tunes a listen guys.
