    awesome :) one of these days, I'll nail this song. I've got about 70%...but that last 30% is a bitch!

    you didn't happen to use a Golden Cello pedal? ;)

    Wow, thanks for the lovely responses guys! The song really is a workout between getting both the licks and the feel right. Hope I'm not going to burst the TGP tone bubble, but all I used for this recording was my Fender Custom Shop (Custom Classic) Strat into Guitar Rig 5. Normally I'd use my Marshall with my pedalboard, but for ease of recording Guitar Rig does a great job. And I kind of dig the tone aswell!

    Best cover of that song I have ever listened to. Quite frankly I get bored of the number of covers of this that are out there in somewhat butchered fashion that I have no ambition to work on this. But yours I would listen to again... absolutely NAILED. Very well done.

    I think I hate everything about you. You are a extremely talented guitar player, singer, good looking, great hair and have a great voice.

    Damn you to hell.
