Here’s a high-quality clip of Stevie Ray Vaughan performing “Pride and Joy” in January 1990 during his MTV Unplugged taping.

Vaughan uses a 12-string Guild, which gives the song a completely different vibe than the original, full-band recording.

“Pride and Joy” originally appeared on his 1983 Epic Records debut, Texas Flood.

It’s a special moment to hear the crowd clapping along as SRV tears up the solo.

Wanna check out more from this epic acoustic set? Here’s another video we posted a while back (and it features a cameo from Joe Satriani!).

    Would have been nice if someone had bothered to synch the audio with the video.
