Hey y'all!

Recently, I covered this wonderful tune! To do this recording I used a great backing track made by the magazine "Guitar Techniques".

I know there's a lot of mistakes in this rendition, but still I think it's better then a lot of youtube covers. There reason behind me uploading this cover, is that I want to receive some constructive criticism from the great minds on this board, hope you'll help me

And, of course, I will C4C as soon as I have the chance

Very nicely done, bravo! Lazy was one of my signature covers for many years. I never followed Richie B as closely as you did but it was always a hit with the fans.

What I liked a lot: The second half where you really let the dogs out. The guitar tone is yours and not Blackmore's but it is very good. Don't change it.

What I might change: Not much. The beginning maybe felt a little stiff and paint-by-numbers but overall you nailed it. Definitely a keeper.

Veryyyyy nice cover!

What caught my attention was the sound of your guitar...as if you wanted to sound as close to the original as it is possible, am I right?

It sounds, to me, like an old record of deep purple. Dude, I love the tone of your guitar. How did you manage to get it?

Another point that I want to make concerns your articulation which I find awesome. You definitely have the feel of the Purple

It was a pleasure to hear such a nice performance. I am waiting for more!

Thanks once again

Thanks for all the lovely comments, guys! Really fun to read. The tone I used is a pre-made tone on the PODHD500 called "cooking tubes". I really liked it, and figured it was fitting for this tune, but I did not make it, hehe.

b3! I'm checking out your tracks right now!
