I really love the tone and emotion in SRV's playing (who doesn't?) but pretty much all of his songs that I have heard are quite a bit out of my league for now, and I'm looking for some stuff that is similar to his work in its sound and style, but a bit easier to play.

Does anybody have any recommendations to that effect? Of course, easier songs by SRV himself would definitely work also.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. Would this be the right forum for this request?

Just try try and try again until you can play anything you want to play.
If you want it enough, and you try enough, it will happen.

Actually Pride & Joy is simple enough. Its just the solos that are hard to re-create. Just make up your own solos, improv (if you can), and you should be fine.

A tip on how to play Pride & Joy: Don't hit individual strings. Mute all the strings except for the one you want to ring, and strum all of them.

Mary Had A Little Lamb isn't hard.
Also the Texas Flood intro.

Rude Mood is easy....


In all seriousness, Life By The Drop, The House Is Rockin', Tightrope, Crossfire.

Those are all fairly simple. Some are harder than others though.

You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

All of his songs are quite easy if your just learning the rythm sections and it's pointless just copying blues solos note for note. So learn som rythms like the pride and joy shuffle for example and just play along with albums and im sure you will get it down.

Lenny is pretty easy. That song has a lot of emotion too. One of the most beautiful songs I've heard.
