Whatever they did - they did it right! A great song and all the instrument parts are mesmerizing.
I LOVE that song!!!!
I’d put Bodhisattva on that list of killer solos.
Guitar work that is so completely off the wall yet fits so perfectly in the song.
Trying to keep it to songs that most everybody knows— If we start posting our favorite obscure tracks, it gets a bit pointless.
A great lesson in melody. (1:24)
A great example of how a slide solo should be done (and just a great melodic lead) (1:52)
Some great varispeed tones and counterpoint in the two solo tracks (2:14 & 4:18)
And How can we forget about the wonderful Glenn Tilbrook— seriously doesn't get his due (1:44)
Rivers is always forgotten too, but he really has some of the most interesting, well-crafted solos in pop-rock. (2:16)
even some great counterpoint in his solos! (2:20)
Yes, a great one. Pretty challenging to replicate the vibe. That is a style that is just gone these days...
Who is it? Might be the great George Barnes. He also did Tallahassee Lassie...
The 2nd solo in Thin Lizzy's Cowboy Song, the 1st is pretty damn good too.
Before launching his successful second career as a funk/r&b artist in the 70s, Johnny “Guitar” Watson was a blues player. From Wikipedia: Jimmie Vaughan, brother of Stevie Ray Vaughan, is quoted as saying: "When my brother Stevie and I were growing up in Dallas, we idolized very few guitarists. We were highly selective and highly critical. Johnny 'Guitar' Watson was at the top of the list, along with Freddie, Albert and B.B. King.” Watson influenced Jimi Hendrix, Sly Stone, Etta James, and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
I’m not too familiar with his older stuff, but I sure love his simple but oh so tasteful playing on songs like this, which was a big hit back in ‘76.
