    I really love this song. Here I play it over karaoke backing track.
    I hope you like it.
    Gears I used: Fender Stratocaster -04, Lovepedal BBB11, Mad Professor Royal Blue, TC Flashback, Laney IRT Pulse, Garageband, Torpedo Wall of Sound plugin.

    Sounds great man. Phrasing, overdriven tone, I really enjoyed it.

    Weird looking tele though. Some kind of double cutaway.

    I almost didn't play the video because I really didn't expect it to be able stand up to the YouTube video of Joe Bonamassa on a vintage Telecaster and Beth Hart singing I'd Rather Go Blind.

    But I did play it and I was wrong. I was totally impressed with video and especially the camera perspective of the string bending. Beth Hart makes me cry every time but your little playing partner makes me smile almost as much as she makes you smile.

    Thanks for that

    I notice there are a lot of weird-looking telecasters in this forum;)
    Thank you:)

    Oh thanks for the lovely feedback :) I almost stopped playing when my son jumped in front of the video, but I just kept playing:lol: A few mistakes but otherwise a good feeling!

    Wow, took me away with your killing guitar. Great job.

    Beth Hart, what a great, great singer for this epic song.

    My first thought on seeing this subject header was, "What an awesome idea for a gig bag."

    Great song, my first ever gig was to see the Faces back in '73. Must head off to Youtube to watch Ronnie play it again. Thanks for reminding me.

    I was going to post Beth Hart's version but thought it could be a distraction from the op.
    Etta is also great.
