Added a coupla tunes to my Youtube today...makes four covers in all so far, all done with a crappy webcam, but you can get the gist. Figured some of the more musically inclined individuals (and even those not) might wanna check 'em out. Yes, this is an intro course to shameless self promotion 101, but I'd be happy to look at other people's stuff and have them share that with us as well. We've got a pretty diverse group of music fans on here and I'm looking for some opinions.
If not, just let this thread silently make its way to page 400. Thanks.

Good sh!t man...I gotta learn some SRV songs man. They sound incredible but they're just so hard to learn and keep with it lol
Do you tune your guitar a half step down?
Yeah, almost everything Stevie does is in Eb; he idolized Hendrix. As for SRV, yeah, it's difficult to get the nuances of his playing down. Personally, I like to learn his tunes note-for-note at first and then branch out. Those covers I had are pretty faithful, but once you have a knack for some SRV type licks and "style" I guess you can improvise a lot of his stuff. It takes time though, man. If you're gonna sit down a learn a Stevie tune as he played it, prepare yourself for some frustration. The guy was a f'ing legend for a reason.
Look up something like "Cold Shot" if you wanna break into his stuff. Fairly simplistic playing with a lot of flavor. Probably a good intro to Stevie's stuff. And, as always, thanks for watching Hawk. Lemme know if you wanna talk guitar or need help or anything.
Personally, the simplest and most efficient way is to just use a tuner. Barring that, there are websites that will play an Eb out loud on your speakers as a reference.
Sweet. I'm glad those tuners exist. I'll need to get one. I really just need to sit down and play some SRV for hours...that'll have to wait though. I left my electric at home. Only have my acoustic for the summer.
