Possibly the greatest intro of all-time.

Cool - just watched that. I didn't know Keef used open E - I thought he was strictly open G. Learn something new everyday!

Proving once again that PRS guitars can, in fact, rock. That was one of the first jam tunes I learned back in the early '70s.* It taught me that yes, in fact, it is possible to jam on a song too long!

Bob

* I was reminded of this by a very nice lady friend from the period who remembered dancing endlessly to this tune when my band played it at dances. To this day she can't get enough of that tune. Her brother was my drummer!

Nice one. This song still gives me chills after decades. Didnít know it was open E and didnít know you could tune up like that. He got the sound just right too.
