Hello there I am new to this forum but not new at all to Steve's Music
quite a while ago I did a rendition of Steve's Christmas time is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=McEG9N7VXL4
which I sent to his management. To my 22 year something surprise Steve wrote me back and complimented on my playing which made me quite happy but he also encouraged me to find my own voice - something I did not quite understand back then.
Fast forward to today and I am 34 old years now. I have been through some bad times musically and was about to throw the towel a couple of times until a couple of years ago something clicked and that letter Steve wrote came back to me. I finally got it - stop emulating your favourite artist and be an artist yourself. I then started a band and we are about to make an album. I am enjoying music again without the frustrations
A couple of weeks ago I participated in a local competition ( I live in Malta - Europe). For that competition I did a cover of 2 guitar solos (Gary moore and Ozzy - link - https://youtu.be/ZfRYBqVhfJg
) I got chosen as a Finalist and now as I finalist I had to do a new 2min video in 2 days time. Steve's words came flooding back and so I decided to write my own little guitar tune. (link - https://youtu.be/3NiiyGQ1Its
