    Crazy how some tunes just reach inside you and pluck the very strings of your inner being. It’s insane. I can feel my father’s being who died 15 years ago today, sitting next to me zoning out to this magnificent tune. And I am by no means a religious man and that says alot.

    I guess this tune just radiates a love so deep and true that my mind of “logic and reason” has no other choice but to give into it’s out-of-worldly nature.

    Days like these usually gets me down but listening to this, I can see him turning on that old LP-player and amplifier yet again and boy oh boy it was good! This takes me straight back and tonight I’m falling asleep with a huge smile on my face.

    I can’t wait to get the chance of showing this to my future children, whom I hope will be sharing equal passion.

    A good night to you all!

    My dad spent hours trying to perfect the song. He died in 2011. When I listen to it it makes me think of him. He was a great man, a patriot rest in peace Bernard Donovan kimmel

    The words “it doesn’t get any better than this” are used far too often and have lost much of their impact, but I believe they originated here with Mr. Vaughan and with this song. RIP  Stevie Ray

      +P.J. Bennett There’s a line from Stevie’s “Tightrope” We’ve all had our problems, that’s the way life is
      My heart goes out to others, who are there to make amends

      Yep and me all his song do or at least you can relate to this lyrics, he was awesome, so talented, such a shame and a loss, and you said takes you from the problems in life, that’s what blues is, just someone moaning about every day life pretty much, you could be like propper big in the blues world if you wrote them down and thought for a bit about them then put it to some cool guitar music

    Love this song it takes me back home to the beach sitting on the porch seagulls in the air waves rolling in and sipping a cold beer. Stevie Ray left us to damn soon. RIP.

    Stevie has an amazing ability to excite and relax you at the same time. His music is its own drug I guess. You just never lose interest when you listen to him. His playing is just pure emotion that speaks to you in profound ways. When I think of the very few players who really use their instrument as an extension of their body, he is one of those on the list.

    I remember when I was a kid my dad would play SRV in the car, and this was always the song that stuck out.  It was so rich, and moving.  I continue to be moved by music to this day, this was where it started.

    Back from a night out drinking my sorrows away. Couldn’t sleep, put this on. God I miss you Stevie, love you.
    Here’s to a brighter future for all of us.

    The story is before SRV made it big he wanted a $200 strat but couldnt afford it. His wife Lenny talked several of his friends into kicking in $50 each and gave it to him for his birthday. That night he sat on the edge of the bed and wrote this for her.
