    OK....

    I’ve never done a video and my technique needs improvement. IE: lighting/angle of shooting. Getting the right balance of my guitar playing with the song was a challenge….I didn’t want to be too loud.

    I learn/play covers as they were written/intended without any personal spin on them. I try to do them as faithfully as I possibly can to the original.

    These aren’t perfect but I needed a reference point. I may redo them when the weather warms up.

    Some may notice I had to use a few chord subs because my arthritic fingers scream with pain on some chord positions.

    I hate pics/videos of myself so doing these vids was a bit intimidating. Seeing my unconscious physical animations was also difficult to endure.

    I do not claim these to be tutorials….I leave that expertise to tonedr (Dale) and klasaine (Ken).
    I’m just an old guy trying to keep my rhythm chops up before arthritis renders me totally m.

    If any were curious to learn these tunes I hope this helps. I have a total of 16 I’ve done…these are 11 & 12.
    I rendered them as .wmv files but know if that is best or not?

    To any that give a view/listen I hope you found them worthy of your time.
    Be smart/stay safe.

    Big fan here too. Never thought about playing guitar to their stuff though. You guys are great at doing this.

    Here is my fav. Maybe I'll noodle with it for awhile:

    I have the "Eye In The Sky songbook.
    I've never worked on that one but IIRC it's a pretty easy song chord wise.

    tah1962....
    I've always loved these two to play along with.
    Thanks for the kind words.....did I mention I hate seeing myself on video?...:)

    tvvoodoo....

    I love that the first Alan Parsons Project album was comprised entirely of songs inspired by the works of Edgar Allan Poe
