Hey guys!

I just finished a video of an arrangement I've been working on for a couple months.

Bon Jovi's Livin' on a Prayer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvKazSsfbDY)

I hope you guys like it! It was loads of fun trying to work it out.

Look for it to be on my CD that is scheduled to release in March.... Thanks so much to the UU!

Wow, that was totally awesome!

Have you considered publishing any of your tab arrangements? I know there's copyright involved, but no probably no worse than releasing a cover tune on a CD.

Thanks for the compliment!!

I'm not sure the how the royalty laws work with written publications. I have to pay to be able to use most of my arrangements on my CD.

Although it's sort of a moot point because I never tab things out. It's just too much work! Haha!

Saw the video this morning and its amazing. A tab would be nice but when no tab is available it forces me to figure the song out myself. Thats good cause it stops me being lazy and helps me to develop.

That is awesome. At first, I was expecting some sort of hilarity, what with the Bon Jovi cover and all. You sat me down, shut me up and made my chin hit the table.

Sounds awesome. The only thing that I would change would to make the key change more epic and Bon Jovi-like. Other than that I have nothing to say but great job.

I actually have another varient where I take it up an octave to try and make it more Bon Jovi like, but I just can't play it yet. ;)

Thank you for the compliment Leroy. It really means a lot to me. I'm still waiting on a new video, you haven't posted anything in a while. How have you been doing recently?
