    271, Thanks for this classic blues track. It sounds a little like Shotgun, I love these blues standards, let's have a go at all of them? A Rhumba Blues would be lots of classic fun. Thanks much 2 you.

    I love Albert Collins! As close as I could get to his tone with an LP. Agile LP bridge pickup (an amazingly good Guitar Fetish Vintage '59).

    @ASATKat - Wonderful throaty blues tone. It has some San Francisco psychedelic qualities. Big Brother playing the blues. Nice out of the box notes too!
    @Mjark - Also great tone! The licks are very fitting and nice. Lovely big bends.
    @fendrguitplayr - That sounds more like an Albert King tone than AC, but very cool!

    Cool takes from everybody!
    I'm using a 335 and I didn't really try to but like @guitarsophist I think I kinda went a bit Albert Collins on this one.

    I hear Mr Collin's influence & tone. Real nice sting.

    In the spirit of Albert Collins I used a capo on the 6th fret. I don't think it helped much for my playing, maybe I should've worn my guitar strap on the wrong shoulder for more mojo.
