Harvey Mandel 'Long Wait'

Sometime member of Canned Heat, Harvey 'The Snake' Mandel was one of the first electric guitarists to employ the two-handed fretboard tapping technique. His solo career allowed him to experiment more with his playing. This track is lifted off his first solo album 'Christo Redentor' from 1968 and Mandel's noodlings are backed by a nice boogie swing feel. Like flying over a traffic jam on a magic carpet, or something
