Tommy! Great movie, so full of meaning. If you can, it's worth watching :)
just for those wondering about the meaning, this song was from a rock-opera called Tommy, look it up for more I'm not you're god damn guide.
Who's playing the acoustic guitar?
Thanks for the surfergrrl_7 1 , happy waves to you.
Lanew68, Elton John has a cover of this song b/c the rock opera "Tommy" was on Broadway in the eighties, and Elton John was in the play. So they put out a soundtrack.
I think Elton John has a cover of this song, why I don't know.
Thanks 4This Song Played them all!!!
The word is blind, dude.
That deaf dumb black kid ... Ha!

If you don' know the context, this song is absolutely hilarious. I mean, great song, no matter what, but Plays by sense of smell, is just comedy gold. The Who is a great band.
So this is about a mentally and physically handicapped kid that kicks a** at pinball?
Pinball tone reminds me of great times!
Pinball is for babies
Wow
Awesome tune...

Ho How Sweet it Is.
F**k yes!! It feels like forever since I've listened to this.

"Pinball Wizard"
The sound at the begining is Pete Townsehnd on acoustic guitar. He sure makes it sound incredible doesn't he. His strumming hand is flying fast. The overlayed guitar is electric and he makes some awesome pinball sounds with it. When they do it live Pete plays the whole song on an electric. Plus, on the 1989 tour, he did play the acoustic on Pinball Wizard as they had another guitarist on electric. Peace
Is that an acoustic rhythm guitar?

Is that an acoustic guitar at the start?
Pinball Wizard - Are you kidding me? This is such a solid song. Brings the house down every time when done Live. Love the pinball sound effects on the electric guitar. Still holds up today. Amazing.
