    I know some of you guys like GL and dokken so i figured I’d post. This is my son playing through my kemper. He is prepping for an audition with a famous band. It’s a long shot as they have already picked someone but we heard that they may be having second thoughts, so he’s waiting for the call. He learned this in 20 minutes and just killed it.

    I'm proud of him. Obviously he has the talent to go many places. Hope he gets it.

    Seriously???

    That is incredible. Not only did he learn the notes to play, but he nailed the phrasing and vibrato.....

    I know your son has worked hard to become a great player, but in all honesty, this is just INSANE talent. I've been playing 41 years and that would take me a long time to figure out, and I wouldn't even get it right.

    Awesome Mike!! Your son is an amazing player. I know you and your wife are great parents and he comes from a solid home. Hoping that the foundation that is laid will help him keep his head on straight as gets in a band and travels the world.

    Lots of temptation out there, but there are many examples of guys who always put their craft and skill first, and didn't allow the potential for excess to destroy them. Paul Gilbert is one guy that comes to mind. Always respectful, personal, humble and professional. He keeps it all about the music.

    I hope the absolute very best for your son my friend and hope this is the right opportunity for him!!

    Great job Matt! Shoot for the stars bro. You never know if you don't try. Even if he doesn't get it he will be getting his talent and name out there. You know how it is Mike. The circle is small out there in the big leagues and guys talk. "Hey remember that kid that auditioned for ........ Wonder if he's available to go on tour". Next thing you know your packing your bags!

    Great vid. He's definitely got what it takes, Mike. He killed it indeed! He's a chip off the ol' block. :)

    Thanks SB! Going to relay your message for inspiration.

    Thanks DP. He’s getting better every day! It blows me away at how effortless it is for him. Sometimes he doesn’t play for a few days and will pick up the guitar and play something that he just heard that inspired him...it’s crazy.

    I’m confident that he will do the right thing as far as drugs and partying. I worry about the really dumb stuff like dares and pranks...lol.

    Hope to see you soon!

    Exactly! If it becomes available, it’s a temp gig; a bunch tour dates over about 6 weeks. It would be a great stepping stone for a bigger gig for sure. I’d love to see him get a gig with someone like Pink, Taylor Swift, lady Gaga, etc....somebody big who pays a lot with a long tour!...lol

    Thanks Johnny!

    He's definitely got the chops. Your kid needs to grow a big giant beard and he'll look older and get the job! :yesway:

    There will not be any big giant beards on the forum, only meats and cheeses and vegetables.

    That is very well done. One audition is all it takes . It seems lots of famous bands are hiring relative un-knowns ( no disrespect to Matt he is a great player )
