    ......via John and Yoko. An impromptu version I recorded right after midnight on Christmas.

    Soon after, I heard that our own James Calvin Wilsey (WickedGTR) had passed. A big influence on my playing, he might’ve done it a little like this......only better. RIP, Jimmy.

    Thanks, kids. I sat down to play something, since I had just put the Bigsby on, and this song immediately came to mind. It popped out, pretty much fully formed. Nice when that happens.

    Sad to hear that Jimmy Wilsey passed. His riff on Wicked Game is legendary, and was highly influential to this young (at the time) Strat slinger...

    Hey Jim. What kind of verb are you running thru. I'm in the market for one. Thanks

    Onboard reverb in the SF Deluxe Reverb and some Strymon El Capistan delay.
