    Default For Vic, as played by JR on North Of The Border

    This is such a great number, was always impressed with John's playing as well as his 'discovery' of this tune, written by one Antonio Forcione who is hailed as 'the Jimi Hendrix of the acoustic guitar'. Well, I finally obtained the Forcione recording Touch Wood, on which For Vic is included. AF is indeed a remarkable player.

    Now, I'm doubly impressed with John for:

    1 - finding this tune
    2 - for interpreting it the way he does on the mandolin. He doesn't slavishly copy AF, but rather brings the number into a mandolin realm within John's sensibilities and style.

    Now to re-learn it...
