    Ok here's a video of me playing Little Wing stevie ray vaughan style at the PESIT rock competition sometime back. We did'nt win but what can you expect from a band thats practiced for an hour before hitting the stage at their first gig together as a band. This is not my actual band....just a temporary thing cause my rhythm section was outta town for the holidays.

    There are some mistakes in the song when i get overexcited or losing concentration plus i was'nt able to setup my sound becoz of time restrictions. Anyway i'll stop talking now just take a look at the vid and let me know what you guys think..

    I love Little Wing, SRV style so I just had to see this. Well, I liked it a lot, and being pretty much a total guitar newb, I don't have much else to say :eek::

    Those unwounded strings are very dangerous. cut them off for your eyes. heard it happening when they poked just into eye balls when you bending to lift the guitar or working too close to frets.

    About the performance: Amazing!!

    Thanks..people have been telling me that for years but i supose i'm just lazy. I actually keep it like that cause its easier to transplant strings between guitars incase they break.

    @CrYpTiC_angel..thanks i'm glad you liked the song.

    Wow man..it takes balls to attempt this song on stage..niiice. With a tighter band and a bit more feel, it would totally kill...don't get me wrong, its pretty awesome as is:beer: I'm looking forward to a version with your full band.

    Thanks man...i think i'm not going to be playing this song again live anytime soon. Just cause i have'nt figured the song out yet. this one i learnt the intro and first verse from the SRV version but i improvised everything after that. I'm gonna work on getting my own version down the way i want it. Maybe in a couple of years if i'm lucky...

    ok saw it....u axe looks nice....but i hate the tone ur guitar is making...not a bad effort but the song sounds empty....need to be filled up a bit more...like some blokes above said, if u probably got a full band setup right, maybe it`ll sound aces higher.....u might wanna exchange some notes with the G3 version of the same song....love tht one.

    Keep workin dude....u`ve got it in u....

    I like the G3 version too but i still prefer the 3 piece band thing like SRV. By getting more than 1 guitar in there it gets more inclined towards rock like the G3 version than blues. I'll stick to blues...

    G3 version of Little Wing is nowhere like Jimi Hendrix.

    Hail Hendrix.

    Sridhar, I am having bandwidth prob with my internet, hence no media links for few days.

    Why? Why? I think its brillianto....except for tht jackass who shredder in the middle and spoilt the song...

    Edit: Jackass = Yngwie

    Yah..thats the major reason..Yngwie. Other than that, I am just about OK with Satch's and Vai's parts..but the SRV/Hendrix version appeals to me more anyday. This song should not be reduced to a shredfest.

    To me SRV's version is hand down THE BEST...even the G3 guys borrowed the structure of the song a bit from SRV's...some licks too.

    The first time i saw G3 version i was amazed but then i stumbled accross SRV's version i wondered how a 3 piece band could sound soo much better than a set with 3 of the current greatest players an awesome rhythm section...

    Crap saw your post just today. Thanks a lot man:) ...

    I was thinking of playing this at the next sunday jam where i'm playing with my band "Zap" but i've decided against it...i'm gonna sit and work out the whole song on my own before i take it live again. I've gotta learn to bend strings now.

    By the way where's this Guru Nanak bhavan exactly and is it a good venue for live bands??
