Unreal, this guy plays an awesome version of one of the worlds greatest guitarists songs, and you people are giving him advice, being a musician for 25 or so years myself I can tell you this guy don't need your input, how about just sayin good job, so instead of criticizing how about posting your perfect version for the world to see, I sure know I would love to see all you amazing musicians pull this off half as good as this gentleman.

I'm from Recife in Brazil South America I really like the guitar sound you're making
Panama is such an awesome song, tons of room for putting your own style in. There's a lot of great covers on Youtube, and it's cool to see the subtle differences in how people play it
I cannot imagine what a blast it was when Eddie took his plexi on stage and started rippin' back in 70's. one of the meanest guitar sounds in the history of rock music
Why do i here a phaser effect as he is playing this but it seems like it is turned all the way down for a slow phase
