You're joking, right? I take it you don't play guitar. He did so much for guitarists, even outside of that ****. He did as much for music as showmanship. He popularized wah-wah pedals, and pedals in general. Do you have any clue how significant that is? EVERY guitarist uses pedals now. Also, he started Phycedelic rock in a sense. It existed before him, but he really made the genre what it is- pure sounds of LSD.

He would take so much time trying to get amazing sounds out of his guitar, using multiple pedals, reversing it, and everything else he could. His early bandmates thought he was hearing things. They couldn't hear he was dojng something different, they heard insanity, because in those days, Elvis was considered crazy and uncomprehensible. It's just so clear now, though, how amazing his guitar tones were. Before him, no one cared about "guitar tone" really, or no one would have gone to lengths like that. Those long, drawn out phycedelic outros on the longer songs on Electric Ladyland? It was done once or twice before, but he was one of the true pioneers. A song ended where a song would end before him. Having sound transfered from one speaker to the next, in a gradual process (well, not exactley gradual, but non-instant)? I forget the name of the technique, but he was one of the first to do that, too. And he just improvised when he was playing live (most of the time). No one jammed as much as he did. In his early days, producers would get really, really mad at him for that. I remember reading, in his Nashville days, one producer faded his part whenever he refused to simply play eighth-notes on a basic chord progression.

Just listen to Are You Experienced and Electric Ladyland. You can hear that he was the first to do this stuff, even if it's commonplace not, because that passion for exploration just pours out, and it just has that "original" quality. :| (and on that note: MB needs an "indifferent" smiley)

Well said about Jimi ^

Some of my favorites of SRV's are his staples. Nothing really gets you like Lenny. The emotion in the first 45 seconds should have you hooked. Tin Pan Alley is fantastic, too. But I really like throwing on a track like Dirty Pool. I always go back to Dirty Pool. I listen to it more than I do Texas Flood. Great album...

At last a thread remembering one of the greats!!! Oh how I love SRV. And the bullet talking of Hendrix very well said. Hendrix setting the bar so high for guitar and technique that its almost unpresidented!! I cant say how exciting it is to be conversing about these great artists and their legacys. My friends and family get sick of hearing about it I know. Favorite SRV song well it varies...Texas Flood I guess..there are just too many..same with Hendrix. Each unique and each a hero and inspiration to me. May their music live on for many years to come!!

Ahh yes...SRV's passion for violent bravado. Thats his soul seeping into the guitar and ringing out for all of us to hear. The raspy blues voice making his all to recognizable dynamic sound. Yes along with his battered 50's strat he reffered to as #1, and pedals sealing the deal on his mystique. Even with his incredible talent and soulful emotion filled performances. He managed to stay humble throughout his career. Go's to show lack of education in no way equals lack of talent. Though this may come as a shock to some. At any rate a larger than life icon and contributor to music. Remaining appreciative of his talents in his duration on the Blues seen.

You can so tell SRV is holding back..Never forgetting who his biggest influences were. Maintaining respect..what a great talented man.

That`s a nice clip, Boozinbloozin - very intersting to watch how SRV behaves, squeezed onto such a small stage with two blues legends.

BTW, I read somewhere here that you`re not really supposed to "multiple-post" on the threads. I don`t know why because, like you, I`m still working out the rules of MB etiquette myself.

Good luck !

You`re very welcome! You sound very polite yourself !

Yes, I like blues, best of all elec guitar instrumentals: Roy Buchanan, who I`ve already mentioned here, Danny Gatton, Eric Johnson, the Allmans, those kind of guys.
