  • Christine from Mcminnville, OrThis song is also reminiscent of "Riviera Paradise."
  • Julian from Tirana, AlbaniaIf you want to hear the song its on his fisrt record Texas Flood.He said he woke up one night with the riff in his head and played it on his 'Lenny' Stratocaster.It's inthe key of E some kind of Blues/jazz chords and improvised solos inthe middle. It's very similar to Little Wing of
    Jimi endrix which he covered.
  • Blane from Pocola, OkLittle Wing is a Jimi Hendrix song. SRV was a huge Hendrix fan and copied him many times.
  • Murph from Peoria, IlThis song is nearly impossible to locate if you want to buy it but don't know the name -- everyone insists that it's called "Little Wing" which SRV also recorded and sounds very similar.
