    I felt like having some fun in open Em7 today and this is what resulted.

    Great playing in every video you've put up! It's got a kind of Ben Harper/Derek Trucks vibe but still it's your own thing. (I love those guitar players so I mean that as a compliment.)

    Fantastic!

    Technically, it is open Em7 tuning -- but, c'mon, it needs a cooler name! You know, like how Elvin Bishop called EADG#BE Jive E!!!

    Maybe it could be called Quick E? :lol:

    what is your setup.. the level of drive you are getting is just perfect... I've started playing more slide and want to do it live... any tips for your sound?

    Thanks! I was using a Vox DA5 on the Blues 1 setting with the built in delay on.

    Wow! I've always loved that song and your rendition is a very cool interpretation. You have captured the "I know, I know" very nicely and that is such an important emotion in that song.

    Very cool.

    I was in line at the drugstore one Valentines day years ago and everybody was lined up getting their Valentines cards. It was dead quiet except for one older guy in line singing "Ain't No Sunshine." One of the weirdest things I've ever experienced.
