    I still get goosebumps when I hear the post-chorus part on "Perfect Strangers"

    Bah-da-da-da, ba-da-dat, ba-da-dat, ba-da-da-da, ba-da-dat-da-da-dat, da-da

      This is what Blackmore used when he wrote the riff for Gates Of Babylon.





      And yes, In 1974 Blackmore was using humbuckers in his Strat's before Van Halen.

            Aside from the other comments here which speak volumes for Ritchie's contributions to guitar, without Blackmore, we never would of had that great scene in "TWISTER" when they were all flying down the road chasing after the tornado to the music of "Child in Time."

            "Sweet child in time you'll see the line
            The line that's drawn between the good and the bad"

            One of the best DP songs ever.

              If you listen to his solos, he does great things without using alot of distortion. "Highway Star", "Nobody's Home", "Pictures of Home". I could go on and on.

              The only bad contribution is that he is an ****************************.


              Dont forget the pirate shirts, the scalloped fretboard, the same singers, etc.

                His contributions are far too many to even attempt listing here,but they are significant and they are many and they are very widely varied. Blackmore is God. End of discussion.

                              Smoke on the Water is probably one of the most used tunes for inspiring new guitarists. Definitely a lot of ****************ty guitarists but...

                              Smoke On the Water is neck to neck and probably based on it's age ahead of 25 or 6 to 4, Smells like Teen Spirit, All Along the Watchtower, Iron Man, Crazy Train,etc...for getting guitars in kids hands and making them feel that first sense of RnR stardom.

                              That's a huge contribution over the years and still today.

                              As long as we have Smoke on the Water...Long Live Guitar!!!!

                              Hint for online instructors...play the example in it's entirety, THEN talk about it for 5 minutes.

                              The only good liberal is a...well, we're still trying to figure out the answer to that one.
