This is me doing Chris Issak's "Wicked Game". Like my first upload here, I did the vocals on guitar....and added a few things of my own here and there. I tried to simulate "oceanic" sounds by caressing the strings lightly with my hand in the intro. I went for total atmosphere with this one.

Thanks a lot, guys. I appreciate it. I wasn't sure how this one would go over with all of the fellow hard rockers here, but I posted it anyway.

I really like this place. I just may have to ditch the other guitar forum I frequent for this one. There's no petty bickering and just a better sense of community overall here. Plus, it's a lot more active.

Wow. Thanks, everyone.

This song was definitely a lot of fun to do. It would be really cool to hear one of the many vocalists we have here sing this one.

The tones are very evocative of the original. Your phrasing and timing is very tasteful and spot on. You did a great job of emulating the sound of gulls and breaking surf on your guitar - simply amazing. I'm also hearing a little tonal similarity with Eric Johnson toward the second half of the song. This is wicked indeed!!

EJ is definitely a big influence of mine. This particular recording was pure luck for me, I believe. I'm certainly no expert when it comes to the recording aspect by any stretch of the imagination. Hopefully, my luck will continue, though.:toothless
