Stevie Ray Vaughan couldn’t read music. Enough said.

A lot of the guitarists I know (including myself) can’t. I think we’re just too lazy . Someday I’ll sit down and figure those little note-y things out, and then I’ll be able to call myself a real musician.
I have many musical heroes, but my first was Paul Simon for the seamless way he was and is able to mesh lyrics with his music – just a really great lyricist. I learned how to finger pick while learning to play The Boxer. I don’t think he’ll be commenting on my work any time soon, but if it ever happened that would be amazing.
