Below is the very first video that pulled up when I searched this song... and this guy nailed it. Very smooth, controlled, and precise. Compared to this vid, I would give you a 5/10.
I'm not trying to discourage you, but only pointing out that you have a lot more work to do that you might...
When you post a video of your playing on the internet you have opened yourself up for all the world to see.
This vid is neither "one of the better covers on youtube", not is it "nearly spot on". It is a good start as others have said. But the nuances of the groove and fills are just not...
It truly is the R&R Hall of Shame... a total joke.
Cheap Trick not being there is down right unthinkable. Has any Rock & Roll band played more shows for their fans than CT? They have been touring non-stop for 4 decades... some speculate over 6,000 shows.
Weather was not a helping factor at our gig as well. We had a great time and it was one of our tightest performances since we have been together, a lot of great compliments after the gig. I guess the crowd was more of the laid back, sit and listen type. The dance floor did finally pick up...
We played at one of our regular venues and the crowd was pretty much blah. We have much bigger and more enthusiastic crowds on a routine Sat nite at this place than what we had last night. I believe New Years Eve has lost it's luster for night clubs and such for the most part. A lot of people...
If I am reading this correctly, what you are saying is once you have made a name for yourself and influenced others, it is perfectly acceptable to give your supporters and followers a real crappy, unrehearsed, half-ass performance?
Here are a few our band does that I enjoy:
Barracuda - Heart
Separate Ways - Journey
Shine - Collective Soul
Rock in America - Night Ranger
Blue Collar Man - Styx
Promises in the Dark - Pat Benatar
Whole Lotta Love - Zep
