I enjoyed that, thanks for posting. Really good guitar tone. Paul sure has played a lot of gigs and has written some pretty successful material. :hank
I didn’t realize how much Hotter Than Hell borrowed from All Right Now!
Similar video type of video (link attached) Ernie Ball “String Theory” Series.
He is a great rhythm player - and will be the first to tell you he is not a lead player. Understands his skill set and maximizes what he has. Has done pretty well for himself.
It’s really cool to see him play - for example “Firehouse” in the link attached. Seeing how he plays and the string bending technique he uses on the D chord with his pointer - unlocked the missing ingredient to that song for me. Just that little bend makes all the difference with that riff.
He has also said in the past that “Hotter Than Hell” was inspired 100% by “Alright Now”. Both he and Ace are huge Free Fans. Ace and Paul covered “Fire An Water” on one of Ace’s solo albums a couple of years ago.
