Hey, what do you guys reckon of this cover of Cliffs Of Dover? I filmed it at a school showcase a while ago, and he's way better at it now than he even was then.

Also, it's pretty freakin' funny in parts.

And, get this, HE'S ONLY BEEN PLAYING 4 YEARS

If he's only been playing for 4 years... well, you can hear it. Terrible vibrato, a plethora of wrong notes, out of tune, etc... Far too difficult a song for him to play. Pretty ballsy to take a song you can barely play and perform it in front of a lot of people though.

"And, get this, HE'S ONLY BEEN PLAYING 4 YEARS"

Being able to play cliffs of dover after 4 year isnt really "Omg hes amazing"

He can play fast but its abit sloopy and his bends sounds horrible

Little bit to fast... and he's using a line 6 spider with a Variax :O

HAHAHA omg... I've played for about 4-5 years and I atleast have the tecnickue(sp?) and ears to learn and play it if I tried to... And I can tune guitar and don't try to show of.

No offence if that was a serious performence but that was not veru good at all but a good try...

Get him into blues. Lyrical depth-not so much. But it is groovy and it is black people's music so if he doesn't enjoy then he is not a true black person.

The picking Eric Johnson does is incredibly difficult, such as the intro to the song, which is entirely picked. So I seriously doubt you could, unless you were trying for about 3-4 years.

#23
Man.. I wouldn't want to criticize that bad and what not.. But, it's just the fact that he's being such a prick and trying to show off so much.. When he doesn't have even near the skills to do it... God.. That was terrible to watch/hear...

the intro's shit, but the last part's really quite good


no it's not, dude it's like the worst cover i've ever seen. Everything is wrong the tempo, the left hand, the right hand and even the tone sucks o.o
