klaasvakie Interesting that he chose the bendy version instead of the slidy version.
I think if your finger tips will forgive it and you have the finger strength, the bendy version offers the benefit of less jumping around. Which is something I definitely struggled with! But there's no way after so long of not playing that my fingers would've handled those bends in the early frets. (I have no idea how SRV did it on the strings he used!)
klaasvakie Would like to hear what you think of the attempt.
I really liked it. Way better than either of ours, I'd say.
And it's comforting to hear him say he struggled. That he swore. Put down his guitar in frustration. Took multiple takes to record it. Allll sounds very familiar. This thing is a nightmare! It's NOT an easy song at all. But you don't improve by doing the easy kak in life, nê?
The fact that he did this in ONE week?!?! He's a beast. I'm impressed. Does he not have a dayjob or something?
I love how much detail he goes into. Maybe it's because I also attempted this solo but, I really enjoyed this post.
