Sneaking Suspicion

Grabbed out a song from the late 70s performed by Dr. Feelgood. Starting as a classical band from the pub rock movement they had a great influence to the uprising punk rock scene. Playing simple Rhythm and Blues like many bands at this time there was one thing that made them unique. And this was their incomparable guitar played by Wilko Johnson.
He achieved his playing style by not using a pick but instead relying on fingerstyle. This enabled him to play rhythm guitar and riffs or solos at the same time creating a highly percussive sound. Good example is this song below, which exists only of riffs. Although he’s still on tour he started a career as an actor. Johnson was cast in the role of mute executioner Payne in the fantasy series Games of Throne
