Night Of The Guitars - Jan Akkerman
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nIPcXPzU ... re=related



Not often these days I get genuine 'F*** me' moments listening to music, but this is one (for rock/jazz-funk guitarists) is right there.

Nothing to add.

Something to tap your toes to :)

Definitely prefer Akkerman in his own style :) Beach-bar music for me.

Youtube horribly sucks for me the last two days. Can hardly open anything.

I've always liked Dio's Holy Diver.

http://youtu.be/bkysjcs5vFU

But I just discovered Killswitch Engage's cover of Holy Diver tonight and I must say that this is even better. I like it :)

Anyone who still thinks Dio's version is still the best, I welcome you to air your opinions here :)

The beats are a little bit confusing, but I like it.

What do you think she adds that is not in the original (apart from a pair of tits)?

p.s. Originals are rarely bettered IMO, this being QED for me...




p.s. Please understand I am not questioning your choice, more engaging in a robust bar-room style music discussion... trying to shake your tree hard enough so that the rationale drops out of it...

Shame.
