Here's Angus Young losing all the electronics in his guitar in the middle of "Whole Lotta Rosie".
SRV was a beast...you can see the passion he had with the music and his guitar...
- he did miss notes while switching..if you're not playing, you're not playing.
2. you can play with only 5 stings. the same notes exist on other strings, just in different positions.
3. SRV is great..but switching guitars like that isnt as big a deal as you're making
Yeah not all that big of a deal really. Happens more often than youd think. Theres a vid out there of Slash playing half of paradise city with a popped E string
