Sort of in my "Lesser Known..." series, I thought I'd put out a call for favorite guitar songs that are the opposite of flash (not to say "Flash", the great band of Peter Banks, who was/is a tremendous player ;-). You know, the anti-"Stairway to Heaven" songs that you listen to and when they're over all you can say is "yeah." My two candidate are "I walk on gilded splinters" by Steve Marriot/Humble Pie (we miss ya Stevie, why'd ya have to smoke in bed?!?) and "Phoenix" by Wishbone Ash. Both are long, drawn out meditations with plenty of soulful playing, which the older I get the more I appreciate.
Submit your faves. No Ted Nugent songs allowed (although I do love the middle section of "Stranglehold"!).
