Smoke on the water

Deep Purple


Ok, dont laugh, so maybe it's a pretty simple song, but its got a cool little solo. Anyway here it is in its glorious entirety, love to see some other Blackmore stuff up here (hint, hint).
P.S. Never, ever play this in a guitar store! P.P.S. Remember to finger pick the riff, Blackmore is said to be pissed off that everyone plays it as chords. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Smoke on The Water - Deep Purple
