Here’s a little tropical mandolin riff I made up in the summer of 2006. I named it after Keith Richards, the ultimate Rock and Roll survivor, who at the time had just taken a life-threatening fall from a palm tree in Fiji. One minute and fifty-six seconds into the track, you can actually hear where he hits his head. Listen with a piña colada in your hand, or try it with a can of coconut water if you’re operating heavy machinery.
