Dude you're a beast. Have you tweeted mark your covers? do you play in a band? I'm almost certain he'd let you open for him in a one and off type setting if you asked.. You're legit man, Your covers are always my go to videos when I'm stuck.
Thanks man, appreciate it! I've tweeted him a while ago! He recognized me at the Tremonti show in Nashville, I didn't think he really paid very much attention to YouTube covers, but apparently does!
As far as the band thing, I was in a band up until 4 months ago... then we all went our separate ways. I'm currently not in a band, I'm just living a boring normal life and play guitar mainly as a hobby. lol.
But thanks man!
