    Yes. The middle puckup was dropped all the way down to get it out of the way,
    (just like my SG custom which is wired like a 2 pickup standard.)

    (Kinda makes you wonder how Steve Morse plays (very well thank you).
    That thing he plays is covered with pickups and switches from bridge to fingerboard.)

    Hmmmm.... need more of these ()

    There ya go.

    Speaking of Ritchie Blackmore solos (were we?)
    I really like the one in Kentucky Woman.
    Probably my favorite of his solos.

    OK, fun's over. Back to topic.

    Here's another song I like. I can't say it's one of my favorites, but it's one of those songs that just kinda grabs me. The pulsing drum and bass work and, of course, the organ just propel the song.

    The extended musical interlude has a real psychedelic thing going on. This song needs an SG!

    Other than the Beatles and the Byrds who really used Rick guitars - and in hard rock-proto metal no less?

    I've never really thought of playing leads on a Rickenbacker 6 string guitar (the 12, well, another matter) as the necks are so narrow, thin and just feel weird to me.

    Still, great clip. Memories

    Another great tune and vocals. I liked this sort of almost-prog rock a lot.

    Here's another from the archives. Again, not a "favorite" of mine per se, but another one of those songs that is just really unique and you almost can't stop listening to. It's '60's psychedelic weekend in the smitty house...without any chemical enhancements, mind you.

    Turn off the lights, fire up the incense, and warm up the lava lamps, boys!

    I liked the first album "Heavy" more.
    It was ....heavier.
    Iron Butterfly Theme is a scary
    evil sounding piece of music.

    I just listened to it on YouTube. Pretty wild piece. Time to teach my SG some new tricks!

    No doubt the reason it was the theme to the movie Manhunter,
    the original Silence of the Lambs.

    As I'm reading this thread, on the TV is footage of a 14 yr old James Page
    playing Mama Don't Allow with a skiffle band.

    I'll be brief, but I stumbled across "Three Days" by Jane's Addiction the other day listening to my IPod. That song NEVER gets old to me, makes me jump and squirm twist and shout. Air guitar, air drums, all that business.

    It is hard to choose, but easy for me to know where to look for killer lyrics.

    This is probably my favourite song ever.

    I wouldn't have liked to be on the receiving end of this (Joan Baez).

    I saw Trower and his band live when that song was new, they were very good indeed, including the bassist/vocalist.
