Pride And Joy

Hey Blues nuts and all you people who aren't quite Blues nuts yet but will most certainly get there when you check out the awesome tune Pride And Joy by Stevie Ray Vaughan. I want to tell you all how much I love that song. I love that song like "DAMN!". The lyrics are really about declaring love to a subject in a very soft and even submissive way (something I wouldn't personally do). The great thing about them though (apart from the fact that the words sound great) is the fact that they are in such stark contrast to Stevie's ultra-mega-badass guitar playing. That creates a very strong impression in my opinion. My Stratocaster is definitely my most beloved material posession. It's my pride and joy! I will be able to play like Mr. Vaughan at some point. You can be sure of that. I have a whole lifetime to practice, so I'll get there :P

Better check out that Healy guy. Someone else also told me to give him a go a while back. Cheers mate.

Stevie (and early Jeff Healy) really woke me up to the Blues.. Life changing I mean it. The world will be better for if
