    Seems as if a lot of folks here are concerned with the sight of an almost nekkid man.

    I’d bet dollars to donuts those weren’t Ivy’s underthings he’s wearing. They were his!

    Read this thread earlier... Always wondered how that riff was done... I was just messing around to some "Rock Around the Clock" and somehow stumbled on that riff... Wasn't even trying too. But I came here to share my findings and was beat to the punch.

    If you watch Setzer play, especially with the BSO, you’ll see him do this by dipping the Bigsby instead of sliding the chord. Glad you understood my less than technical explanation!!! :)

    Probably not a coincidence then that Dave Edmunds does the Rock around the Clock solo early on in Tear it Up?!

    I just found this version where he plays it by sliding rather than with the trem. I guess when you're that clever you do it whichever way you feel like on the night!
    Well I said I'd let you know how I got on, and your explanation really helped, so thank you. I can't actually play it... but I'll keep trying.
