    Although I've always preferred songs that written in major keys I have a sweet spot for a few minor ones, This is one of them!

    Nick, I'm 52 years old and it's the first time that someone (except a few close relatives) calls me a guitar hero. I'll take it!! :)

    Nick,
    You certainly prove without a doubt that the talent pool here on ST is deep.

    I, for one, really enjoy a self produced solo interpretation for a song rather than
    hearing a note for note reproduction of the original artist’s solo.

    Great job.

    I love to jam over that backing track too, your tone is good and nice playing!
    How do you record these vids?
    I find difficult syncing audio with video.

    I had the same problem myself. All you have to do is place the audio and video track next to each other and move one of them until the waveforms are aligned.

    You really nailed the vibe of the song while making it unique. To me, that is talent!
