If you do not like the guitar why did you watch the video Go troll somewhere else.

When blues guitarist and vocalist Stevie Ray Vaughan released Texas Flood in 1983, he introduced Texas blues to a much broader audience than it had previously known. His impact was great enough that even today, 21 years after his death, if you ask a music lover to name a Texas blues guitarist, he or she will probably reply, “Stevie Ray Vaughan.”

 

But, like many great musicians, Vaughan was not sui generis. He synthesized his unique style by combining a huge number of influences from Albert King and Johnny “Guitar” Watson to Lonnie Mack and Kenny Burrell. That being the case, here’s a list of five Texas bluesmen (out of many) who, in addition to creating their own great legacies, paved the way for Vaughan to create a great legacy of his own.

Blues guitarist and vocalist Sam “Lightnin'” Hopkins (1912-1982) was born, lived and died in Texas. He recorded a lot of songs in his life (estimated between 800 and 1,000) and often played electric guitar, as opposed to the majority of country blues artists, who performed unplugged. The New York Times obituary for Hopkins called him “perhaps the greatest single influence on rock guitar players.” He certainly influenced Stevie Ray Vaughan. A little more than a minute into this song, Lightnin’ says, “Play it boy,” and pops his low E-string a couple times, getting a little distortion out of his amplifier. It’s easy to imagine a young Stevie Ray Vaughan hearing this recording and thinking, “Now, that’s what I’m talkin’ about.”

Lenny ray vaughan

This emotive addition to the Custom Shop Tribute Series is an intricate reproduction of Lenny down to the smallest of details from the customized neck that was a gift from ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, the reflective SRV stickers on the body, the battered headstock to the autograph that Stevie himself etched into the neck plate—even an autograph from legendary baseball great, Mickey Mantle.

The original Lenny guitar is a universally recognizable Fender Stratocaster, best known for its uniquely bright and powerful tone and known as one of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s favorite instruments throughout his entire career. The guitar itself has an almost mystical heritage that can be traced back to the very beginning of Vaughan’s rise to stardom.

Lenny’s body is similarly storied; its most notable feature is a batwing-shaped inlay believed to be from a 1910 mandolin pickguard and reproduced in exact detail for the replica. The original sunburst finish was removed by heavy sanding, giving
Lenny a much more rounded, smoother and softer contoured body than any Strat before or since. Subsequently refinished, the original sunburst finish still peeks through the clear mahogany lacquer.
It’s easy to imagine Vaughan pulling into a truck stop and adding the SRV stickers to the shrunken, warped and cracked pickguard. The Custom Shop has recreated that ensemble with remarkable authenticity. The pickguard hides yet more
treasures—a humbucking pickup cavity, unusually routed in the middle position, and a haphazardly wired control pot assembly with tone pots mounted in reverse. Re-creating the non-original bridge and strap-lock hardware is further evidence of the fastidious attention to detail. Ultimately, however, it’s all about Vaughan’s music, and he summed Lenny up best when he said, “It’s always meant a lot to me. And I love what it sounds like.”

Stevie Ray Vaughan was just a struggling young guitarist in Austin, Texas, in 1980, when his wife, Lenora ‘Lenny’ Vaughan, gave him a used Stratocaster that had recently caught his eye in a local pawnshop. It was a 1965 Fender Stratocaster guitar with the original pickups that, from the look of it, had seen better days. Although it began life as a three-color sunburst model, it had obviously been refinished (none too expertly) at some point, and now it had a dark natural finish bearing an elaborate inlay in the body behind the bridge. Nonetheless, there was something about it that clearly and immediately resonated deeply with Vaughan.

As Vaughan himself said during an interview published in the Feb. 1990 issue of Guitar Player magazine:

It’s called Lenny. I found it at a pawnshop and didn’t have the money to buy it, and my wife and several other friends of mine put a pool together and bought the guitar. It’s always meant a lot to me. And I love what it sounds like. “Riviera Paradise” and “Lenny” (Texas Flood) are both played on the same guitar, and for some reason that guitar works for songs like that more than anything else. [Guitar Player, Feb. 1990]

Seven friends with $50 each pooled their money to buy the Stratocaster and gave it to Vaughan on his birthday during a celebration at a local Austin nightclub. He was thrilled. He took the guitar home and, sometime that night, as Lenora slept, wrote a new song on it. In the morning, Lenora Vaughan remembers, “He was sitting on the edge of the bed with the guitar and said, ‘Listen to this.'” He played her the song he had written that night, “Lenny.” The song later became one of Vaughan’s most well-known instrumental pieces, and he continued to perform it exclusively on the Lenny guitar. Throughout the remainder of his career, the Lenny guitar traveled with Vaughan almost everywhere he went, and it was later autographed by baseball great Mickey Mantle during a chance meeting in Houston. On April 10, 1985, Vaughan had just performed the National Anthem at the season’s opening game for the Houston Astros where Mantle was also in attendance as a guest of honor. Without a baseball or bat nearby, Stevie offered up his beloved guitar to be touched with the magic of the American sporting legend.

The fan favorites everyone loves. The songs that make the artist who they are.

You’ll no doubt enjoy the sound of the beautifully remastered songs on this CD (as opposed to MP3’s that contain less information, which translate into compromised sound). But we think the thing you’ll appreciate most about this Playlist is that even though you didn’t make it, you might wish you did.

Stevie Ray Vaughan songs helped reignite blues interest in the ’80s. Influenced by the likes of Albert King, B.B. King, Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Guy and numerous others, the talented guitarist became a legend in his own right. Though Vaughan’s life ended early due to a 1990 helicopter crash post-concert, his musical genius and best work continues to inspire us today.

 

A few months after guesting on Davie Bowiesingles ‘Let’s Dance’ and ‘Modern Love’ in 1983, Vaughan released his debut album ‘Texas Flood,’ which spent six months on the charts. The album’s closing track was ‘Lenny,’ a beautiful instrumental Vaughan wrote for his wife Lenora. Vaughan recorded the song on his Stratocaster guitar, also named Lenny.
