Matchbox (Blues) is a visualization of Stevie Ray Vaughn’s guitar intro to Blind Lemon Jefferson's eponymous 1927 song covered (and altered) by numerous artists including Carl Perkins, The Beatles, and Albert King. The song was chosen, in part, because Blind Lemon Jefferson was a native Taxan who preformed near Deep Ellum in Dallas.
