In the oft chance that some members may not had heard this song..The Smiths The Boy with a Thorn in his Side


Recommended Posts

Please click 480p for clean sound.

One of the greatest rock bands went virtually unnoticed in this country(US)..but they're off spring did not.

While Rock guitarists..including the little peon ones like myself indulged in so called virtuoso boring 20 minute guitar wanker solos, Johnny Marr revived British rock guitar rythmn with real creative stuff.

Great song & riff.

Love the singer & how he expresses the thing..Obviously he didn't give a damn what people thought about him.

Big Smiths fan here, always love Johnny Marrs playing and he, along with Peter Buck is credited for developing the 'jingle jangle' style of playing.

 

He also used the acoustic on a number of times, this is probably my fave where the rhythm is acoustic led.
