It came from an experience in looking for a Led Zeppelin t-shirt to buy. But owner Cliff’s heart is in the classic rock he grew up with. It was a crude tape, with R.L. playing the melody and I played some licks and fills.
Like so many youngsters and teens of today, I had a burning desire to play the guitar. I was really fascinated with the instrument. I knew from day one. My passion was guitar and music. I just had to express myself musically. However, I discovered early that there was no easy way to learn guitar. I was not unduly worried, for me it was a labor of love. I learned to pick up playing guitar very quickly.
Fast forward to the sixties; I had a brand new electric guitar and I was now playing quite a few Jimi Hendrix tunes, I also had a large record album collection to die for. I played successfully as a lead guitarist and vocalist in many Bands over the years, I lived my dreams. In the seventies I played Hendrix, Deep Purple, Steppenwolf, Led Zeppelin, Cream, Clapton, Santana, Felix Papalardi, Johnny Winter, Rory Gallagher, Roy Buchanan, early Fleetwood Mac, BB King, Ben E. King, and every good Blues Guitar Player I could find.

It is ridiculous. Take responsibility for your own actions. Parents should take responsibility for their own children. This argument is pointless and should be reserved for high paid lawyers. Hopefully we are smart enough to not take a 3-minute rock song too seriously.
Comfortably Numb: Pink Floyd: David Gilmour: There are two solos in this song. The both contain tasteful string bending and descending runs. It is interesting how Gilmour mixes both pentatonic and diatonic licks.
Bottom Line: Best selection of karaoke music, active karaoke most nights of the week: Wed-Sat, laidback atmosphere, and I can’t say enough about the food. Overall, awesome.
