    Walter is the man and he absolutely brings the emotion to the strat. I hope someone offered that guitar a smoke after this song.

    One of the small handful of people who can shred the blues and make it sound like it's meant to be.

    Smoking! And using the often overlooked middle pickup.

    Is he related to Kilgore Trout?

    I had never heard of him until a workmate (and good buddy) bought us tix to a show in Buffalo and insisted we do a road trip. So, okay, lets go....smoky little bar, $5 for a bucket of beer on ice (Labbatt Blue too!) and this Walter dude about 10' from our table.

    Face. Melted.

    Oh yes, I'm a fan since that night.

    Does his bass player work in a jail? He must REALLY not want to lose his keys...

    Saw him live a couple years ago and he just burned the place down, so good.

    He plays with the neck pickup for the most of the song. Switches to bridge at 5:29 and to the middle at 6:16. But thanks for pointing out, I did not even notice.

    Have another look. 21 seconds in he's on the middle pickup. :)

    But yes, he does switch among other positions.

    Saw him a couple years ago, his performance was flippin intense, it was almost scary how he wailed on that guitar.

    This was shortly after he recovered from his liver transplant and you could tell he was a man with a new lease on life.
