"Nature's Way" by Randy California and the group "Spirit". Originally composed in 1970. Tragically, Randy California, a guitar prodigy who played (at 16 years old as slide lead and rhythm 2nd guitar and vocals) in the Blue Flames with Jimi Hendrix(summer of 1966, after Jimi heard him at Manny's Music, NYC, giving him his last name from where he came from, actually Wolfe), drowned in a rip current after saving his 12 year old son on Jan. 2, 1997, Molokai, Hawaii. This video shows his belief that musicians must address environmental problems in positive ways.
Enjoy his great lead tone, rhythm intricacy, and his step father's incredible drumming;
