    Well...this would have been a lot easier with a Floyd Rose-equipped guitar so I improvised a bit on the solo.

    Love the tone, sounds huge.. Really great stuff

    Fav part though is the sections where you're just stuck looking at the camera with nothing to do..lol

    Hell yeah! It's been so long since I've listened to that album. Killer tone you got on that Scott. I bet you wish you still had your Destroyer for this one! :D

    Good to hear you in action again!

    Man that’s was so good

    Def Leppard is one of my favorites.

    You rocked the balls off that one. Doesn’t always seem like there are people that still appreciate these bands so glad to see this cover for sure.

    I’ve leaned a small amount of old Def Leppard over the years and one thing is for certain. When you sit down with their stuff you realize quickly why Steve Clark was such a genius with riffs

    Killer! Huge tone, you got some sweet tricks man... calm face, serious finger attitude - always loved that about your playing man, you should be out there rocking some big arena somewhere.

    Thanks Joe \m/

    Yep, its still getting all the attention. And I didnt have the energy to retune the one with a Floyd, ha! \m/

    Thanks, I appreciate that! \m/

    Thanks Ralph! Ya, I wasn't intending on even doing this one but was trying to capture that guitar tone off this album and was playing this main riff and the one from Coming under Fire over and over and finally figured why not just do the whole thing. Believe it or not, I'm still on the lookout for a Destroyer like my old one. If I ever see one on Reverb or the bay at a decent price I'll probably grab it.

    Appreciate that! Ya, their first four albums are soooo good. Riff heaven.

    Thanks Mike! You made my day \m/

    Indeed !! :thumb:
    It sure has a meaty growling bark to it that i would not otherwise hear on your strat types, but then again you make any guitar sound amazing, no doubt attributed to your Mad Skillz :)

    Oh yeah, I've long wanted the 3 pickup Phil Collen model but every time I look they're in the $2-2.5k range or more. I never wanted one that bad.
