A guitar and its player.

I love the song Little Wing by Hendrix, lyricly and musically it just climbs the scale for me emotionally. Passages of quiet beauty that blend into moments of pure aggression. Love the range of feelings it provides.

This is Stevie Ray Vaughans version. Even without the lyric...it delivers. SRV loved Jimi...you can feel it in this performance. It captures the feel of the original and yet always lets you know its SRV and not a tribute act.

The video is a nice look at some of the past greats and some that are still around. See how many you can spot.

That was great, thanks for sharing it. Can't say I recognized any of those guys well enough to name them but they looked familiar
