  1. I’ve read about so many musicians who were influenced by this guy…I haven’t heard a lot of him though…this is really cool.


      1. I’m going to listen to more of him…all these guys are crediting him…he must be great.


  2. This is an excellent song and it sounds so familiar to me. I bet other musicians borrowed from this song. The guitar playing is great.
