Week 3: Cover of Little Wing (SRV style)

Well, like the last couple weeks, I had to put something together last minute! But here it is. I decided this afternoon to do a cover of one of my favorite tracks to play on guitar: Hendrix’s Little Wing. I’ve always wanted to record a version of this tune. It’s always been a huge inspiration. One day I’ll have to take a little time to really make this my own, but for now, I basically just bit Stevie Ray Vaughan’s styling (and some of his licks to boot!).

 

The backing track I played over was created by a YouTube user (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uE0DbTvQII). I made plenty of mistakes – it’s far from perfect – but I’ve been having a blast jamming on this track occasionally over the years, so it was a lot of fun taking the time to record it today. I hope you enjoy it half as much as I enjoyed recording it! One day I’ll play it reggae style. 🙂

      You’re right, I have trouble posting things without pointing out the flaws in my work. I think I seek to be humble, but am actually just too self-critical. I should just post things without such remarks!
