    I know - thread revival! Just figured since my name was mentioned a couple of times that I might share my new single with you.

    Really nice playing Chris! I hear lots of Vai in your phrasing and I dig it! Thanks for posting!

    One of the most Humble and gracious and funny people you could ever meet. The first time we met him in 2004 my daughter sat next to him for a photo, the first thing he said to her was "Excuse me, but i smell and i am all wet"

    Thanks so much. The song started off as me poking fun at the Vai-isms of a guy I know (the working title Vai Clone became Velvet Claws), but before I knew it I had a melody I liked, double-tracked it for some Vai-ish goodness, and then took it through a few twists and bends with the country stuff!

    I remember one of my drummers years ago read an article interviewing Stevie Ray Vaughn. When asked what it was like to be the greatest blues player alive, he said I don't know you'll have to ask Billy.

    No arguments on Al Pitrelli. He was fucking amazing while he was with Savatage, and his work with Megadeth wasn't too shabby either!
