My buddy Joe is dying of cancer. He and I have made a lot of music together over the years and today he asked me to perform Victor Wooten's "Amazing Graze" at his funeral. I can play it, I've known it for years. I don't know if I can play it at my buddies funeral.

Anyway, I think this fits nicely into the covers thread.

That's pretty rough, sorry you have to go through that. That is a beautiful cover, and it does sound like it would be a good tribute to play to someone.

Wow. I can imagine how difficult that would be yet how glad you will be that you did it for him.

Vic Wooten is THE MAN.

I'm really sorry to hear that IMA. Awful.

I feel like this must have been nominated. Might be my favourite cover ever, just popped into my head (the video's great too).



And these guys ought to have been represented.
