    I feel like I could pick out Vai and Malmsteen, if it’s the right note.

    One of the most memorable instant recognizable "note" for me, is the first note of Hard Days Night.

    Santana is the first one that pops into my head. SRV would be my second guess. BB is probably there, as well.

    Summer 1989....Went to the hardware store w/ my friend (he was building a drum riser),,,,,Just as we're pulling in to the parking lot, a very cool Bass/Drum groove opens up a song both of us had never heard before.....The second the guitar kicks in "Hey! It's Stevie Ray!"....(song was "Crossfire")

    18 replies and finally he gets mentioned. I damn sure would not be able to tell David Hrissom first!
