Strat King

Thomas Blug is a fine guitar player. In 2004 he won Fender's "Strat King of Europe" award and deservedly so. Everything about this recording is perfect, from the drum sound to the various guitar solos, and it's all performed live. The track is an original instrumental called "I'll Be There" (not to be confused with a certain Motown classic), and Mark Knopfler would be proud of the blues licks at 5:43. No cheating with the play cursor, though, you have to earn the right to hear that bit.
