Feeling good? (Wilko Johnson interview)
Wilko Johnson (Dr Feelgood, The Blockheads, Game of Thrones... with a different kind of axe) interview on Radio 4, should be available in a few hours in the UK at least. Wilko's opinions on songwriting, effects pedals (I'm a guitarist, not a cyclist) and playing style (with some more fuel for the eternal left versus right debate): http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01sm7hv
that original riff sounds like a hendrix one. 51st anniversary or ezy rider i think, but i can't remember for sure.
the rhythm style works pretty good. you can keep a percussive rhythm while playing leads like that, especially when you take into account upstrokes.
