Paint it Black

October 31, 2013 4:12 PM

For the request raffle, a cover of The Rolling Stones' Paint it Black in the surf rock guitar style of Dick Dale.

This was a lot of fun. Definitely not within my usual style, but I had a blast trying to recreate the guitar sounds. I wanted to add tambourine, but I actually couldn't find mine, so it is what it is. I hope you like it.

Yet another raffle request that feels like I made the request and forgot about it. Love it.

That's a tricky request, but a damn good effort. Liking your rock voice there, plus the guitar sounds great!

Unf, awesome. That riff turns so jagged and menacing when it's done in surf guitar style.

Amazing. The little glissandos or whatever they are called are perfect.

I’ve just been reminded of this, and came here to find that I never said thanks for making the song that I requested! This is great, just what I was hoping it would sound like! Sorry it’s taken almost 7 years to say so.
