Stevie Ray Vaughan LIVE Soundcheck 1986, KILLER | Society Of Rock Videos

Good Morning Stevie

Very few artists would enjoy being recorded during their sound checks, however, Stevie Ray Vaughan is one of those greats that does not fail. In this perfect warm up Stevie destroys his guitar solo with ease and delivers the blues to the empty, echo-filled arena.

At first this video was recorded secretly but, was later granted permission for public viewing, thanks to Greg Savage of Savage Guitar Design.

Fun Fact: Stevie had a distinct sound of his own which was partly based on using heavy 13-gauge strings. Vaughan’s sound and playing style, which often features simultaneous lead and rhythm parts, also draws frequent comparisons to that of Jimi Hendrix; Vaughan covered several Hendrix tunes on his studio albums and in performance.

One of the songs featured on this soundcheck set is “Ain’t Gone ‘n ‘ Give Up On Love” and Stevie really puts his whole heart into it even after just waking in the morning!

+ Ain’t Gone ‘n’ Give Up On Love Lyrics +

I ain’t gone ‘n’ give up on love
Love won’t give up on me
I ain’t gone ‘n’ give up on love
Love ain’t gone ‘n’ give up on me
Every tear that I’ve cried
Only washed away the fear inside
Now I, I ain’t gone ‘n’ give up on love

Every beat of my heart
Pounds with joy and not with pain
Every beat of my heart
Pounds with joy and not in vain
And although those are painful memories
Only brought me to my knees
I was just given up on love

Little Johnny Taylor told us so long ago
What about the midnight cryin’
Wo that cheatin’ and lyin’
What about the price that will
Oh surely be paid
Those that gave up on love
Love will have it’s day
I ain’t givin’ up on love

I ain’t gone ‘n’ give up on love
Love won’t give up on me
I ain’t gone ‘n’ give up on love
Love won’t give up on me
Every time I cry
Love just won’t let me be
Won’t set me free
