Stevie STUNS in acoustic performance!
If “Rude Mood” wasn’t your favorite song before, it is now!
Absolutely amazing! Watching Stevie Ray Vaughan pick up a 12-string acoustic guitar and effortlessly pick his way through “Rude Mood” on MTV Unplugged is just another reminder of what a phenomenal talent he was! His performance is simple; no frills, nothing fancy, no theatrics and yet somehow, you’re still on the edge of your seat in amazement as his fingers dance across the fretboard.
This fast paced, Rockabilly-influenced instrumental tune was featured on Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble’s debut album, Texas Flood (1983) and was inspired by Lightnin’ Hopkins’ “Hopkins Sky Hop”, another powerful influence on Stevie’s career.
We love this acoustic version – you can hear Stevie’s Texan roots and shades of his childhood heroes, as well as his signature bluesy influence. We’re sure you’ll love it just as much as we do!
