    i know i'm not the only music lover here. being that there is such a lack of quality music being produced lately, i've been having trouble finding good tunes to listen to. whatre everyone's top 5 favorite songs of all-time? you know, the one's that always put you in a good mood no matter how shitty you are feeling. i'll start...

    1) "Little Wing" -Stevie Ray Vaughan
    2)"Bold as Love"- Hendrix (pretty much anything Hendrix and SRV for that matter)
    3) "Summertime" - Ella Fitzgerald
    4)"Gimme Shelter" -Rolling Stones (pretty anything Stones for that matter too)
    5)"Time" - Pink Floyd

    Can you get the pickups they use on his Sig Strats?

    The man was too fast, and his style was all his own. Kinda like a Texas Jimi Hendrix.

    I'll tell ya, I don't care for his music, but as far as actual playing goes, John Mayer is pretty good. I know SRV was a big influence on him.

    Mayer has some skills. i don't really listen to him either but he has talent. i've been playing with .14-.58 gauge strings lately, heavy like SRV used, and man you are so right. stevie was a monster. for him to be able to move his fingers that fast with those heavy ass strings speaks for itself. it took me over 2 weeks to learn "Lenny" with those damn strings lol. i dunno if his pickups are available, my samarium noiseless cobalts are pretty badass though. i've come to realize lately it's all about pickup height, heavy strings, and a tube screamer
