Miracle Blues From Outer Space” TODAY’S soundtrack for Nicky Sorbelli’s EPIC ASS KICKING of his blood cancer! The Sorbelli family got a holiday miracle yesterday when after Nicky’s chemotherapy we got to leave the Miami Children’s Hospital & come back home because his blood counts were holding up so well & fighting so strong!!! Dec 14th is his next chemo infusion so a little break is just amazing for him and us right now!
It’s a feeling I can’t explain – I’m so happy! There aren’t any words for the feelings that accompany getting out of the hospital and chemotherapy UNEXPECTEDLY the day before Thanksgivibg! It’s a true holiday miracle and we are very very thankful – it’s perfect!
As we drive down US1 heading back home – I am getting calls and texts and emails from my music shop in Key West that there was a very special person hanging out and celebrating the holiday on Duval street Key West – a one and only ROBERT PLANT. Yep that is special and he is probably cool to party with and hang with – but all I can say – and I say with much humility and respect – “MOVE OVER ROBERT PLANT NICKY SORBELLI is coming back to town!!” Robert you & Santa Clause may have to wait in line for the attention this year if Nicky is back in town because he’s the coolest of the cool!
And Robert his hair was as EPIC as yours back in the day. He’s Lion at heart – a Golden Child God.
Wayne Sorbelli here at my Island Guitar Key West Music Lesson & Video Studio. I’m getting ready and running through rough drafts of Led Zeppelin’s EPIC Moby Dick for a lesson request a student requested of me (and pre-paid thank you very VERY much)
I’m doing the main riff using a pick and no slide. I do incorporate the glass picky slide during the drum solo part where normally there is no guitar – making it more like an episode of Whole Lotta Love’s orgasmic middle section and interlude – however I was picturing fishing and hooking on to a Moby Dick type whale where through my playing I was trying to relay my feelings of battling the big one – relating it to my family’s battles and struggles with my little joys blood cancer at the moment. We are fighting things of giant proportions and we love fishing. – so my song about fishing is about catching Moby Dick !! It’s all tensions and release. It’s all the blues in my playing – no matter how rock I try to get lol
I pulled out my old Gibson USA Les Paul 1994 Custom guitar just to get reacquainted lol
I’m playing through a solid state Roland Micro Cube on the Brit Combo amp setting with very little delay on for when I was picking – then cut the delay back to zero but kept the gain on ten for the middle slide trippy part.
Any questions feel free to contact me. Most of the amps and gear I use for videos are for sale. Jsyk.
