    Hi again, Gretschers. This time I had the nerve to record "Sleepwalk". Bigsby's galore. All the credit goes to Mr Setzer, whose version I cannibalized. I hope you like it and leave a comment. See ya!

    Quite nice. Tone, control, digital dexterity combine with a gorgeous guitar and one of the best amps out there to make music. Keep it up. By the way, I could NEVER post a video of myself, so you're up there for courage, too.

    Nice tone. I like the Setzer songs when played with Dynas. You are obviously a skilled player, the one thing though that I'd recommend is practicing with a metronome to develop a steady rhythm when playing unaccompanied.

    I used to practice without a metronome and developed some bad habits, now I'm working to correct them.

    Really beautiful job. Extremely true to Setzer's tone which I have found is hard to do. Thanks so much for sharing your music with us.

    Vey nice, if I ever did a video my hands would be blurr. Not Arf cos of any dexterity but due to the fact that my whole body would be shaking with nerves !

    Lovely guitar and amp.

    Sweet! I love your chord voicings.
    Same for the earlier misty vid you posted.
    Is this your own interpretation, or did you get this version somewhere?
    I'd love to learn how to get to that level :).

    Thanks for posting!

    Very well done,That is such a personal song for those who really love & feel it.Not just players,but if you are a player then it can really be open for interpretation.There are a lot of people I know that hate the song in all versions and it drives me crazy.I even know a few that think it was "that song by the guy Lou Diamond Phillips played in La Bamba",that makes me want to scream,but I do have a few friends that respect that songs power and love it.Good job quiqueguitar.

    Very nice!!

    The boys and I whipped that one out Friday night. We were playing for a church fair, so we couldn't really do a lot of the more risque songs. We whipped out some old chestnuts, and Sleepwalk certainly fits the bill!
