Stevie Ray Vaughan Tribute

I met Steve in the 5th grade at a talent show.  In the audience, sitting on the first row, was Stevie Ray.  We didn't call him that back then...he was just Steve.  After I played, Steve came up to me and said "Hey, I saw you playing guitar and I play guitar, too."  From that day on, we were friends that talked endlessly about guitars and Jimi Hendrix.  Listen very carefully to the end of the song and you will hear how I voiced my guitar with my wah wah to say "Stevie Ray, Where have you gone?" Happy Birthday to my friend. 

It was really nice to have someone like-minded, as we were, in those early days of our childhood.  To this day, I still love talking about guitars and Hendrix.   Wow...what cool days those were.  

This video is just so cool because it shows how Steve just strapped on his guitar and went to town.  I love it!  He was one with his guitar.
