I woke up this morning and read an article about Stevie Ray Vaughan, and how today was the 20th. anniversary of his death. Today is a day that musicians, especially blues musicians sadly remember the news about Stevie Ray Vaughan.
I picked up my Telecaster and played an instrumental version of “Six Strings Down”, it was my tribute and honor to a man who made me switch from a rock guitarist to a blues guitarist. A tribute to a man who made a huge impact on blues music, inspired many guitarists such as myself.
Whiskey is in my glass, and my hand is raised in a toast to Stevie Ray Vaughan.
R.I.P. Stevie, your music lives on always.
