If you came to my video chat 2 weeks ago you might recognise the guitar lines that I was trying to badly imitate. They come from this song:



It's just Ritchie's guitar and Ronnie's voice (and a flute gets involved in the fun later too) but it just shows what can be done with great melodies and simplicity. One of these days I'd like to get around to learning the guitar parts for it. smile.gif

Does the intro sound little bit of Jimi's Little Wing ?

Otherwise great song. Haven't listened much of Rainbow maybe I should start.

Other old band I'm into now is Whitesnake. My co-worker was playing his cd in the work and I asked what the band was. (ofcourse I knew WS but not this song which was on)

He replied back with a anger in his face. Damn you don't know what this is !??! It's Whitesnake g*******t !
But he's Bulgarian tongue.gif Mellow guy but gets pissed easily.

I have always thought this song is very Hendrix influanced. Richie was a great fan of his back then. He swiched to Strat mostly because Hendrix played them.

Ritchie and Ronnie... it simply does not get any better. I consider each of them to be at the top of their class.
