was at a stop light listening to Cumberland Blues and I heard this really loud guitar being played somewhere. My windows were rolled up so I knew it was loud as hell. I look in my rear view window and this old bald fat guy was leaned back in his convertible playing the most epic solo ever on his air guitar. I rolled down the widow and instantly knew from the tone and playing that it was Jerry's guitar. The sun was shining on this dude and he looked like an angelic hells angel as the solo from "Sing Me Way Back Home" screamed out of his beige Chrysler Sebring. I was laughing and loving every minute of it. I pulled up next to him at the next light and blasted Sugar Magnolia out of solidarity. He drove away still air guitaring the entire time. :cool: :hail: :lol:

were you able to tell what scale or mode he was playing? It may help you learn that solo.

You should have gotten his number, he may give lessons.

Maybe he was practicing for this

Good thing he had a convertible or he would have had to have the neck out side the driver's side window.

I could keep going on....
