ok im not sure if this is exactly meant to be here but id thought id ask for general blues fans for their feelings on this.

its a cover of little wing a blues song

three guitarists joe satriani, vai, and malmsteen

personally apart from the ending i think they do an ok job and look like they feel something

apart from malmsteen , which i cant actually understand what the hell he is doing?
he really is sh1t

i know its not blues, but for parts they do try, apart from mr i think im god

I seen this before, it's facking terrible.

The best cover of Hendrix i've seen is Gary Moore playing Red House.

it's true

i didnt mean to say it was exactly great, but i kind of respect vai and satch a bit more now tht for at least half the song they "tried" to stick to what it was

Satch' part is by far the best of these three, the other two just try to play as fast as they can.
Oh and also, as allways:
What Malmsteen needs 1000 notes to express, David Gilmour can say with 10
#8
satch = god

vai = very good, but extremely showy

malmsteen = feces

These equations can be applied to any example of their playing, in concert or studio.
#9
Malmsteen just ruins that song, but the others put q a lot of emotion into it.

I didn't mind the Malmsteen at all, actually. Although Vai's non-stop hammer-on/pull-off bit was well executed, I didn't like it that much.

In general though, I don't really like going beyond two choruses of the solo section.... kind of quote Hendrix for a chorus, then do your own thing, then end it. I know that these guys have to share lead among three players, but I've seen bands with one player do 6, 7, 8 choruses... gets to be overkill at that point.

yea that was a pretty sweet version.

and for this video, the only solo i liked was from the guy in the black hat(name?). it actually gave me chills at one part.

^ That was Satch. I think he had the most interesting note choices out of the three.

Ever heard Buddy Guy do it? Jeff Beck and Robin Trower did a pretty damn decent cover of "Manic Depression."

I saw a clip of it on the DVD Lightning in a Bottle. Is there a recording of it?

I know that he plays Voodoo Child at his shows and that would be awesome to see.

If I have to say this again...

Looking like you feel something is irrelevant. Hendrix looked like he felt something, but I find little emotion in his version of the song. Eric Johnson barely moves when he plays, but his playing influences my emotions more than anybodies.

Just because you can't understand what he's doing doesn't mean he's ****. Yngwie goes well over the top live, which is what he does in this video. He's perfectly capable of mellow jams and beautiful composition, but Yngwie is there to please the most loyal of his fans, and thats what they want from him. It's called good business sense.

What makes you think you know what the "true emotion" to Little Wing is any better than they do?

Or maybe it's what Yngwie chooses to express in 1000 notes, Gilmour chooses to express in 10.

it wasnt all that bad. i now respect vai and the other guy(cant remeber his name) a lot more because they actually put some soul into it. malmsteen just messed it all up with his constant 1000 note-per-second playing.

This is my favourite Little Wing cover:

Monte Montgomery is amazing. He never lacks emotion in this video.


I have the audio to that on my iPod but have never seen the video. So thank you so much for posting that. And your right it is amazing.

Thats G3 Live in Denver I believe. I borrowed it from a friend a little while back. Great dvd. But if you guys havent realized, they put their own swing on things. If they made it sound exactly like Hendrix then you would have been bitching about that. Those are three talented guitarists (Malmsteem sucks balls). So ya, if you get the chance, watch the whole thing and youll be amazed. Cheers.

Another of a long list of fakes. Jeff and Robin never played together. Jeff Beck and Seal did Manic Depression in 1993. Jeff again with John Fruiscante (sp?) and others did it at the Meltdown 2005 Festival.
