    He's a good player but he uses too much pinky! Did SRV have a pinky, I wonder? im kidding!

    the whole band is good. That's a tough tune to play without keys, and it wasnt really missed!

    Not bad, his vocals could use a little work though, sounds like Stevie gargled with some gravel.:p

    Yeah, kinda like a muppet or Cookie Monster, but the licks are there and it's way better than I could sing!!

    More Texas accent with a stoned sound. Gotta draw out those words a bit more. Also, needs more heavy attack and pick scrape (vertical not down the string) needs more percussive attack.

    That was really good. Is it kinda corny to try to look like someone else though?

    All of the notes but none of the feel. This video demonstrates how truly great SRV was.

    Definitely NOT SRV, but still really really good! Tones are happenin! Dude is close enough that anybody but us freaks[lol]could mistake it for the real thing.

    All of that said, NOBODY else could be SRV. His vibrato was one of his main signature ingredients imo, and this guy does not have it. Still.......quite impressive efforts here!

    "It's kind of strange when people treat me that way. You want to be careful, you want to be sure somebody's not idolizing you so much that they don't see themselves clearly. It's easy to do. I know, 'cause I did it, too. [re Hendrix]"

    I find it way too gimmicky. No need to have to dress just like SRV or even play his guitar. I think it'd be more subtle to just play damn good dressed as yourself. There's only ONE Stevie Ray. This guy isn't him.

    Tribute bans seem to be a fad right now. Lot of them down here in the Austin area. The one's I've seen all try to imitate the original band's look as well as sound - at least the lead guy anyway. Surprised we don't have an SRV running around here - although maybe we do and I just haven't seen it yet. These guys are good - wish I could play half that well. :)

    I agree with post # 14 . However, Every once in a while you do find some who can respectably pull it off without that " gimmicky " feel like your watching a circus act. Check out this link . To me this guy dresses and has the hole look nailed down , but has the chops to back it up. Looks and sounds like he's put a lot of time into his act and doesn't come across as a cheesy act. Let me know what you think.

    I don't think that "corny" is an adequate word. "Creepy" seems more appropriate. I hate "tribute acts".

    There’s a whole generation that have little knowledge of who srv was .
    I think this helps keep his music alive...
    I would go to see this and judge for myself whether I thought it was enjoyable or not .
    Just my opinion

    I agree! However, if there was a SRV guy that dressed as SRV and played like SRV in Austin he might get run out of town!
