    Yeah, it is hard. You have to syke yourself up. At the end of every night your hand hurts a little, and the finger tips sometimes bleed at the nail. This new band I put together are pretty much a SRV Tribute, so I have to play and practice like SRV every day just to keep my fingers in shape. But I love this stuff more than anything!

    Nice job! When are you using the CC versus the Silas?

    Sounds pretty good! Check my Little Wing below using the MJM Blues Devil stacked with a Bad Monkey. Same pedals on the other tunes as well!

    Very nice job on the playing, man!!

    If I had one suggestion (take it for what it's worth) at about 5:45 on the Sky is Crying, you flip to the neck PU and your tone got a ton better for me and a lot more Stevie-ish. I'd suggest leaving it in the neck or neck-mid the whole way through. Otherwise, I thought it was great...

    Best of luck with the band...

    Thanks guys, George makes great pedals. His Cactus Crunch is the greatest! And the Silas pedal inspired me bigtime!! Thank you.

    Um? I would have liked you adding something of your own to the songs, instead of copying SRV's solo's note for note...

    Just my 2 cents
