    My son has been a big fan of Eric's for long time. Actually both of us are. I've actually run into Eric several times at Austin Vintage Guitar. I was actually able to give him a CD of my son's original compostions. He actually e-mailed me and said he really liked on of them. When we ran into him at AVG, my son wanted to make sure which song he liked since they're all instrumentals. My son played the one he liked and he said that's it. He asked what the name of the tune was and it didn't have one. Anyway my son asked him to name it, and he said Starcrest was a fitting name, so that's the name of the song. Anyway me son likes this into, so he sat down and figured it out. Keep in mind, it's not exactly tone wise,but my 17 yr. old son got close. Here's the link.

    What a nice story, cool tune, and lucky kid! (I'm talking about having such a cool dad! - not just meeting EJ)

    Nice sound and good feel I,m sure we shall be hearing more of Aaron (I know he knows someone with loads of backing tracks!!!). Nameing a track is always difficult so if you can get Eric Johnson to help you then....why not. I think Starcrest is a great name.

    Thanks guys for all the kind words. It's not amazing the most of the hotshot guitarists chimed in on here to say some positive things. This is really cool. I know it's takes some talent to be able to handle most of the stuff that Eric plays. I don't have quite enough talent to handle most of his intricate chords and picking. It's beyond my comprehension and ability. My son, however is trained in classical guitar and can hear, and execute the complex chords and picking needed for this piece. I'm pretty proud of how well my son can play at his age. I could only hope to be able to play at his level one of these days if ever. I know it should be the other around,but at least one of us is talented. Thanks again to all who chimed in with kind words.:D

    Excellent tone.

    Of course if you are the same Texsunburst59 from the Les Paul Forum then it isn't surprising.
    Seems to run in the family.
