Mainly because the guy can really play. That opening chord sounds like the opening of Crawling Back To You by Tom Petty. See – I was paying attention.
Not quite sonic enough for my tastes mind – I’d quite like to see what it’s like cranked up to the point where everything is starting to fall apart… eg: the guitar solo about 3 minutes into this
For reasons I can’t quite fathom, someone’s slowed the original down by about 50% – which I think I prefer to the proper one. The internet is quite random sometimes. In little ways.
Then there’s this – a piano hammer type thing on Kickstarter
Which I think has been around for a while – probably got patented so it got trapped in corporate limbo-land and nothing came of it. Sounds cool though.
