"Still Got the Blues (For You)" as written by and Lou Reed....
Used to be so easy to give my heart away.
But I found out the hard way,
there's a price you have to pay.
I found out that love was no friend of mine.
I should have known time after time.
So long, it was so long ago,
but I've still got the blues for you.
Used to be so easy to fall in love again.
But I found out the hard way,
it's a road that leads to pain.
I found that love was more than just a game.
You're playin' to win, but you lose just the same.
So long, it was so long ago,
but I've still got the blues for you.
So many years since I've seen your face.
Here in my heart, there's an empty space
where you used to be.
So long, it was so long ago,
but I've still got the blues for you.
Though the days come and go,
there is one thing I know.
I've still got the blues for you.

    General CommentThere are a few songs where the lead guitar communicates vibe and emotion better than any vocal you could apply to a song. This is one of those songs. I have heard criticism of GM saying that he is guilty of "over-playing", and in some cases it may be true. But this is one of those rarities where every note, every lick is timed, spaced, and played just perfectly, where the whole is much greater than the sum of it's parts.

    Also, the melody is the same as the chorus in Lionel Richie's "Hello".

    General CommentBlues playing at its absolute best. Blues song at its best. If you want to know what the Blues basis of rock is, this is the perfect song. This is making a guitar cry.
