    Stevie Ray Vaughan -- Little Wing.

    Another song that brings back all sorts of warm fuzzy feelings from the high school days, most vividly the senior kegger I was invited to when I was a junior in high school (35 kids in my high school, I bet most of you have more kids in your class!). Long story short, a couple of buddies from a neighboring town and I set up and jammed on blues rock most the night--lots of SRV and Jimi Hendrix. The guitarist, who sadly died in a one vehicle wreck in 2000, could flat out PLAY. He nailed Stevie's solo at the 3:20 mark--I recall closing my eyes while holding the groove down and getting goosebumps all over. AND HE WAS DOING THIS WITH A LES PAUL! No tremelo other than his hands and a smattering of pedals.

    And since I've been on a bit of a Steve Vai kick...here's the same song from the Astoria:

    Pretty new tune to be one of my "all time faves", I know.. but still good.




    John Mayer - Slow Dancing in a Burning Room



    One of the greatest feel good songs of all time, despite the super dark lyrical content! I played this for sound check at my cousins wedding this weekend, and the response from the people present was insane! Try to imagine me singing this, while playing an acoustic guitar.

    Here's one from the eighties which always gets me going. No idea why, I think it's her voice. That and the duet with them singing in unison but a couple of octaves apart. Roxette did some of that too.



    Wherever I am, whatever I'm doing, I just have to hit some air drums when they come in!



    And here's one which usually makes me cry:
