    Hi all, new here, small into: I've been playing guitar for 1.5 years but bass for about 40, so this isn't a telecaster video, per se. But it's the one that put me and my band mate on the map (a very small dot on a very large map) which led to gigs all over the place, for which I'm grateful. I haven't quit my day job, but Mike (obv. a lot more talented than I) sure has and he's doing music full time. When covid is under control and gigs return, I'm looking forward to resuming. In the meantime, here's something for your Monday (and, as an aside, we have it directly from David Paich that ours is his favorite cover, although maybe he says that to all the covers :) )

    I've been watching Mike's videos on Youtube for some time now. He has an incredible vocal range, and he tackles a wide variety of material. (all darn well) I've stumbled on a few of his live feeds, where he's almost just winging it. Thanks for posting. ;)
