It’s unfortunate because Stevie Ray Vaughan will never be matched as a guitarist. His guitar playing was exceptional, and he had an incredible voice and stage presence. He essentially redefined the blues genre by elevating it to a whole new level.
A teacher in the United States by the name of Sarah Josepha Hale wrote the original poem “Mary Had a Little Lamb.” On May 24, 1830, it was printed for the first time.
The song was further made famous by Stevie Ray Vaughan, who also added “A-Tisket, A-Tasket” to his own rendition. The children’s nursery rhyme “Mary Had A Little Lamb” was one of SRV’s most well-known and well-known musical compositions that incorporated his distinctive blues approach.
Naturally, Stevie modified the words a little to make them more rock ‘n’ roll and badass, which was more fitting given the savage solos he was playing around them.
