Would you consider TYA a blues band or a rock band? Personally I think they're a blues band with a few rock songs but a few of my friends think otherwise so I want to know what you think.

They're a Blues-Rock band who also played a lot of Jazz in their early days.

They're one of my favorite bands, though, and I don't think that their genre should really matter.

slightly off topic but i once heard alvin lee quoted as saying that if he played a bum note during a number then he made sure that he played it again so that everone thought it was intentional.

sounds like good advice to me.

I've never heard that, but I can definitely see him saying something like that.

In fact, I've heard guitarists who have messed up a note, but then played it multiple times so that it sounded as though it was intentional.

Alvin didn't mess up too often, though; at least not during any of the numerous recordings I've heard of the band. A lot of it was based on the fact that he had a small piece of wood shape like a guitar neck (with "frets) that he use to practice he fingering on during school.
