    Josh Gallagher and Jacob Deraps cover "Girl Gone Bad"!

    Hey folks! Thought you'd be interested in watching this! My cover of Girl Gone Bad that I did with the awesome Jacob Deraps!.

    Jacob is 17 years old from Quebec Canada and he did the guitar and bass tracks for my cover. He did an incredible job replicating both Eddies tone and feel on this track and it's SO awesome that I am able to collaborate with him from the otherside of the world!! -I'm 19 from Perth Australia haha

    Anyway check it out! Very keen to hear what everyone thinks. I did the drums and mixing and Jacob also did an amazing job on the bass too.

    Here it is! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nR1knRFxVL8

    Jesus, that was absolutely flawless!

    You are one sick drummer, my man.
    I loved your sound & your technique, swing & feel, is next level.

    As for the guitar, wow!
    Great tone, nailed everything, even the bends, the weird but awesome EVH feel & all those fills.

    To the both of you:

    Do nothing else with your life EXCEPT play music.
    You both have the gift, which is rarer than you might think.

    This is great, you are both excellent players. I hope you guys make some original music soon, because this style needs a new infusion of young talent to take it to the next step (wherever that may be). Nobody has done that yet.

    It can't be "Van Halen" without Roth, any more than it can be "Van Halen" without Eddie.

    Almost nailed everything.
    Those bridge notes we talked about before the solo were different. Of course because of the guitar he was playing. But other than that it sounded like the record. Possibly the best I've ever heard.

    Thanks so much everyone! All your comments mean the world! Also that's the second person in two days to tell me to do nothing except music, got told that by a guy at a fantastic Whitesnake tribute show I played the other night, it kicked ass so much energy, and such awesome feedback from the audience! I'll probably be uploading some clips from it to my youtube channel too!

    Definitely! Just from speaking to Jacob from over the internet we've become good friends quickly, and he seems to have an identical attitude to me haha, we've been talking about working on some originals! So that may happen in future! Will be awesome to jam live with him one day!

    Also I've got some original stuff of my own that I've been working on too with my band (power trio), so we can bring rock back to where it belongs! Jacob has the same intent too!
