    It's that and the improvised parts of the solos where I'm really just sort of going at it... I know I can play Bb Major (the key of Purple Rain)and it's relative Minor Gmin... but I also play F Major a lot and think in G min but it's never the same as the night before it's always different... or Don't Stop Believing which heck I'm not even sure of the key but I think it's E Major ... but C# Hendrix Blues Licks sure works and I can get sorta shreddy with a E Major trying to build tension before returning to the pretty solo/melody everyone is familiar with... I'm trying to build to some type of climax, about to go off the rails but at the last second bring it back home to the listener. I don't know if I actually do that but in my mind that's what I'm trying to accomplish. My drunk guy staggering down the street mumbing to himself and screaming profanities at some one that isn't really there style of guitar playing.

    Thanks guys ... we do this club every other month and I always want to post live to FB something so people can see what they missing. We hadn't called that song in almost a year but I was able to hand off the phone to get a little bit of it. My bad Pops Staples ( it could be David Hood ) solo and all. Thanks for watching!!!

    Presumably that's you on lead? Great stuff, bit difficult to pick out the vocals though!

    It what we get from a IPhone in the audience... plus we hadn't played it in a year... it was a request and I think our singer just got thru it ...

    Of course we have no control of the house mix either... house system and house sound man.

    Them's some tasty vittles right there man! Love the music scene down that way, makes me want to book a flight to visit my aunt and uncle in N'awlins, it's been way too long.

    Clearly you do sir, clearly you do! I googled the Grouse Room to see where it was before my previous post. Looks like a side trip to Lafayette might be in order next time I get down there!

    Well that was weird! Multiple post mania, can't see a way to delete the extras so I guess you got my point. :thumb:
