    Very nice. Interesting to see someone playing a composition like that with a pick, which is kind of rare in my experience.

    I like the second section best, I think. I always like a nice rolling 6/8.

    His guitar has low-end that sounds like a cello, and I like that he gets in with some of that steel-string distortion. Sounds really good.

    Excellent! Now he just needs to find himself a Gabriela Quintero and he’s a made man.

  • Jeff Sherry

    Great find Dan. Love both sections of the song. Chimes, note bending and flat picking. I see a lot of the past in his playing with his own voice.

  • Art

    God, I’d give anything to have left-hand dexterity like that.
