Guest Guitar Player Series: Session 5

It's that time again... Time for another Guest Guitar Player video!!This one features Matt Skversky on guitar. I was really happy I was able to shoot this video with Matt... First of all... he picked a GREAT song!! (more about that in a second) Second of all, I was able to squeeze this in before Matt left L.A. for good, and I was really happy that we were able to make it happen!

Matt was only in LA for a short time, but he quickly got involved with our little circle of musicians and made his mark playing bass for The Cold Chills while he was here. We are *so* going to miss him!

The song he chose was Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black" ... I love this song. This was the song that made me realize what a great songwriter she was... like, next-level...she stopped me in my tracks with lines like ...

"Life is like a pipe...and I'm a tiny penny rolling up the walls inside..."

Really, Amy!? you're killing me... She had this way of getting you inside her head and somehow making you understand... She had a perfect balance of blunt realism and poeticism that I always loved... so sad that she's gone.

So, this is our take on a great tune... Thanks for shooting this with me, Matt!!! And as always, special thanks to Rob Gaudet for shooting and editing this video!!!
