Thank you guys so so much! I'll make sure to keep awesome music coming, with more daily videos and a new album on the way. I was replying to every comment but the current number has reached an overwhelming high so it will be a week or so before I can get back to each and every one of you. I appreciate every comment, suggestion and future video ideas! I did not expect this video to reach this many views in just few weeks! Wow! Among all positive responses I've noticed small percentage of misconceptions about this video so let me address that. I am a musician from Europe living in United Sates. I do music full time, that includes solo and band performances. As any full time musician knows there is no bad gig, whether it's a dive bar or a festival stage you get up on there and do your best! However smaller gigs with few or no people in the audience sometimes can feel discouraging. That is one of the reasons why I started this YouTube channel, to capture video and audio of my performances, big or small, exciting or boring. Seen by thousand people or just one, these performances can live on the internet for other people to enjoy around the world. It is a gratifying feeling to share ones music with the world even if at the time of music creation there was no one there to care to listen to it. If a tree falls in the woods and there is no one around to hear it does it still make a noise? Well, it does if you put it on video. Not every musician is fortunate to start their career with sold out shows and packed concert halls. Most full time working musicians play all the venues they can get. It is extremely encouraging to move forward and keep developing as an artist after seeing response to this video. But I am still making progress, and not every show I do is a sold out concert with packed audience. This video is from a gig I did on August 16th of 2017. It was a Tuesday night at Motorworks Brewing in Bradenton Florida. It is a nice venue with indoors and outdoors seating. I set up on stage and played form 6 to 10 pm that night. August is off season in that part of Florida so attendance for live entertainment is low everywhere. The first hour was empty, I played for my self, took some video, made up music. I have some of those videos posted on my channel. Second hour was when a party of three people showed up and that was my first audience of that slow Tuesday night. I've greeted them and began interacting in between songs. And after building up a rapport one lady felt comfortable enough to through out a request. The rest you can see in the video. Any full time musician will tell, people request songs they want to hear. Most of the time it's "Margaritaville" or "Freebird". But sometimes because of the way play people request for Jimi Hendrix, SRV, Jeff Beck, Santana, Steve Vai… Yes, music fans know these artists, and yes, they know their songs too. I get requests all the time for "Ode Como Va", "Cause we ended as lovers" or other classic hits. Sometimes it ends up in the video, some times it doesn't. But this particular request stood out and had a hilarious interaction that needed to be shared. I'm at a real venue (google Motorworks Brewing) doing a real gig, with my real solo gear (see my other videos). The voice in the audience is not my mom, my mom doesn't speak English, not my girlfriend or friend. These are real interactions that real musicians encounter around the world on regular basis, except this time the camera was rolling and I uploaded it for you to see. Thanks for watching!

Reply Freeman Rabe says: September 16, 2019 at 5:30 am That was exactly Steve Vai wanted to play Tender Surrender but he was drunk when he played the first so that he can't remember it so he improvised another! You are amazing man! Reply Marveltl Legend says: September 16, 2019 at 7:03 am We now know your sweet surrender!. Reply [OCB] says: September 16, 2019 at 8:45 am It's just so weird to think like 30 years ago you wouldn't get much recognition for your talent. But thanks to YT, you get 9M+ people who get to see it. This is the reason why I pay for Internet. Reply Marco Faraone says: September 16, 2019 at 11:32 pm Excellent work!!!!!!!!

Reply Mark Davis says: September 19, 2019 at 4:57 pm Late comment, I’ve listened to your improv and Vai and I like yours better. It’s different than his music in my opinion.

Reply Brian Corsetti says: September 27, 2019 at 2:12 am I have a newfound respect for musicians that play live and take requests. Especially requests from an artist that is arguably the greatest guitarist of all-time. How do you impromtu crush something as complex as that on the fly? It speaks volumes about how talented this guy is. Much respect! Reply Mark Afonso says: September 27, 2019 at 8:04 am Nicely done 👌 Reply Angelo Pillay says: September 29, 2019 at 9:40 am OMFG OMFG OMFG! the first 2 minutes! MAGIC! I'm still listening to the rest of the song…. I'll be back!..I'm back! I watched two 30 second ad's at the end, in full! That's as close as I can get to paying for this!Jeez guy! It's amazing to see what Mastery looks like!..Back again, I went to find the original. Steve Vai is amazing but none of his performances made me feel this way, maybe I should have heard Stevens version first. Always the first version you like is the one that sticks with you, even if it's a cover. Reply Lefty says: September 29, 2019 at 10:50 am 5:00 He's lypsincing his guitar. Gotta love it !

Reply Zachary Traylor says: October 14, 2019 at 11:43 pm Thisis crazy bro you’re a talent Reply Elise J says: October 15, 2019 at 5:03 am The first time I came across a person creating such a rich multi-instrumental sound ALONE on stage was when I came across this channel. Maybe this video. I was blown away. Since then I’ve seen Tash Sultana and others but this remains amazing. I think I like it better than recent video of u winning the blues festival. It’s so unique. 🙂 the audience member certainly got her money’s worth, actually I’m thrilled she was a creative muse and gave u something to work with. Reply Alec King says: October 15, 2019 at 10:47 pm DØVYDAS, you need to partner up with Marc Rebillet, cause the both of yall together would change the world… Reply Alex Ferstl says: October 16, 2019 at 8:48 pm I like that more than the original.
