    Damn!  I used to play that one too.   I had no idea that was him on
that song.  We used to play that song because it's about here (the Gulf
Coast, I'm only about 15 miles west of Biloxi).  I actually only have
one instructional video - Albert Lee's.  I just had to buy it.  Not
because I ever thought I could play like that but just to watch.  The
guy is amazing.  The funny thing is, I bought the video about ten years
before I met him.  He's one hell of a nice guy.  The first guitar I
built now has Albert's signature on it ;-)
