Blues Guitar Slinger is written about famous Texas blues rock guitarist Johnny Winter. The song started with the opening riff and was built around that. It was a fun song to write although I had a hard time finding information that would work for the song. I had to go off of images for some of it. He recently passed away and he shouldn’t be forgotten. He was one of a kind. He used so many blues styles in his playing, I’ve never heard anyone like him. One of the all time greats.
