If I had to guess, I'd say it's Stevie Ray Vaughn.

It starts off with a slow, bleusy guitar solo, with no other instruments playing. Kinda clean tone (sounds very SRV). When the solo is done, the same guitar goes into a kind of slow, funky, and still bluesy stum. After a little bit of that the other instruments join in and the singing starts. Now I don't know what the words are, I think the chorus goes something like "why'd you ______,(pause) why'd you ______". I think _____ is the word lie, but I googled the lyrics and found lots of stuff but not by any artists that are known for thier great guitar stuff.

I'm dieing to find the tabs to the spiffy guitar in this song, thanks for trying.
