And for St. Patrick's Day...

From: The National GUITAR Museum ( http://www.nationalguitarmuseum.com/ )
 
On March 17th - St. Patrick's Day - it's only fitting that we also celebrate one of Ireland's greatest guitarists, Rory Gallagher. Here's a searing live version of "Tattoo'd Lady" that proves that no one could make a beat-up Strat sound like Gallagher could.  http://youtu.be/JdkuHgSzNhg

Note: Rory Gallagher's birthday is actually March 2nd.
