Album: Couldn't Stand the Weather (1984)
  • This song shows the influence Lonnie Mack had on Stevie Ray Vaughan, the fast chicken pickin' style that Stevie picked up came from listening to the first record he ever owned: "Wham!" by Lonnie Mack. >>

  • Devin from San FranciscoOn the studio album version of this song Stevie uses mostly bends (string bends on the guitar) to play the main riff of this song, but when he performed the song live he used slides to play the main riff. Some claim that he did this to reduce strain on his fretting hand during tours.
