    You should rehost it through Youtube. I got constant buffering. Didn’t have the time to wait to get through all the buffering.

      I had it on YouTube but they took it down for copyright, some songs/artists have deals worked out to monetize cover videos but apparently this one is a no go for Youtube.

    Great cover of a classic, VH! I’m no longer surprised by your incredible talent because it shows so consistently in everything you do. But each time I see/hear you perform it’s an exciting experience…it never grows old, even with repetition. And your presence on this vid…your smile…WOW!…absolutely beautiful!

    Violet, thats incredible a 3 minute version of that solo I am so psyched. I can’t wait to start working on both of your new instrumentals ASAP. Thanks for the holiday wishes, right back at you… have a great holiday Violet! I’ll try to purchase Black Widow tab tonight or tomorrow and start working on it this weekend. Thanks for the tone tips!.Take care, talk to you later. Eric

    Hey thank you so much Violet for putting this up on your site again! I really love it, terrific performance and the tone you have on this and all of your other videos is just to die for!!!! You really are the Queen of Cool! Is there any chance of me being able to purchase a tab of your 48 second long guitar solo “rock” from the youtube video. That really pushes all the right buttons for me , I can’t get it out of my head and would love to learn to play it note for note, it really wails! I’m also going to get your Black Widow tab cause its killer too. But its that well crafted take no prisoners solo that I crave. Thanks for taking your time to reply to my comments and requests you are truly a wonderful person and I really appreciate it. I look forward to listening to your new compositions oh before I forget I wanted to say I love your Les Paul with the P-90 in the neck and the zebra humbucker in the bridge what a nice combination of tones that didn’t come that way stock did it Thanks again , your friend and big fan Eric Lange

      Well until you mentioned the Hendrix Purple Haze video it had totally slipped my mind, so thank you for the reminder, hopefully it won’t have any issues hosted through amazon we’ll see! So I often try to get a similar tone to the artists song i am playing, for Hendrix I had a Big Muff Pi fuzz effect pedal. It is made by Electro-Harmonix not to say that is the exact fuzz tone Hendrix used but its what i had on hand and sounded pretty close to his tone. I checked out an octave pedal because in Purple Haze I hear a fuzz and octave, but in the end I already had the big muff so I went with that. That solo you are talking about titled ‘rock’ I really like that one too, so much that, a couple weeks ago actually, I started the writing process to turn it into a full 3 minute instrumental guitar song so it will definitely get TAB and a better recording done for it! Thanks for expressing your interest in it, that is helpful to know. There will be one other song coming out before it though which is in recording phase right now, it is also an upbeat fast rock guitar instrumental so you may like to learn it as well. Don’t have a release date yet but I will put a notice out on here when it goes to mixing. The guitar I used in Black Widow was the Gibson Les Paul BFG yes it comes stock that way! It is a lovely guitar so nice to play and has great tone. Thanks for stopping by my site, always nice to chat, Have a good holiday/thanksgiving tomorrow(if you celebrate).
