Re: My First Youtube vid. Satriani cover. Always with me, always with you
Thanks you guys. I very much appreciate your kind words. I normally shy away from covers. I always feel that they are not as exact as they should be. I can appreciate trying to put ones own spin on a cover song, but to do that to a Satriani song seems moot. His phrasing, impeccable legato technique, and tone are just a tough act to try and impart ones own style to without destroying the emotion and feel of the original. I enjoy working on originals much more so. Although original is a subjective term in that everything we play as "original" are nothing more than re-digested pieces of those we've listened to and studied, imo. Still I'm proud to say he has been one of my largest influences since I first heard him. I've had a love/hate relationship with about a dozen of his songs I've worked on over the years that are close, but still not quite there. I finished this a couple of months back and it took me that long to get the nerve to post it there and share it. There are so many young and extremely gifted players I've seen that have left me wanting to throw yet another perfectly good guitar out the window, figuratively speaking. Thanks again guys.
