Travelin' Pt. 2

Here is my second post about the Windy City since I will be travelin' there this weekend. The same song by two all-time great blues guitarists.

Sweet Home Chicago- Buddy Guy

And now the original.

Sweet Home Chicago- Robert Johnson

WOW, BR - that took me back!

Made me sweat, too!

When I "discovered" Robert Johnson in '67 or '68, The Devil took me; it's been all downhill since.

And while most modern guitar shredding descends from Hendrix, Hendrix descended from his muse and Guitar Hero, Buddy Guy, who was doing this stuff back when Jimi was in diapers.

Saw him again last year, and he's STILL tearing it up with that infectious smile and blazing guitar!
