AUD sounds great and puts you in the heart of this charmed crowd. Jerry sounds great, the acoustic is enchanting, and the band is ON! '80 Dead gold!

The intervals and touch and chromatic phrases in the solo are fantastic

One of the best solos I've heard on this tune. If you like your solos light on notes and heavy on feeling, listen up.
