    Probably my all-time favorite Moodies guitar riff/solo-- and this is a live version--

    Yeah I love it. We played that song live for years and those riffs and solo always gave me a workout. We played it like the record which is a pretty quick tempo but we added the ending part that The Moodies played live - it was lots of fun.

    As a Moodies fan since I was a kid, totally enjoying this entire discussion! Saw Justin play solo last summer, he's still an incredible musician. It was interesting to see just how many different guitars he had along with him too.

    We like to retain that "original" patina....

    I think it was a 1963 "Block" ES335, cherry red. I think '63 was the year Gibson introduced block inlays. Here is more info:
