    Default Jacob Deraps -- EVH Clone

    Check out this Youtube channel from Jacob Deraps. A 17-year old from Quebec.

    Some of the BEST EVH covers I have heard. He's got the tone and a natural swing like Ed. Got a little "stage" presence as well, even though its just him and the camera.

    He has videos (mostly VH) from ages 16 and 17. He is a natural.

    I've seen his videos before. He's an excellent player and he has killer tone. The tone, the feel, it's all there and makes for great covers.

    yeah, funnily enough I found this guy's channel a few weeks ago. How the hell can he play VH like that at his age when I can't even nail those tracks after 20+ years trying?! The way he does the 'sustain'-y end part of the intro to Mean Streets flat out scared me

    Awesome to see the younger generation get turned on by the greatness of EVH. I watched the I'm The One video.....just crazy for a 17 year old. Makes me wonder how cool it would have been to watch Eddie as a young man come up with the licks that would change guitar forever !!!

    Default Clone?

    The kid is good, but a clone of EVH? I don't think so.

    well obviously not, but he does a fairly convincing impression compared to other VH wannabe's on the 'tube, I'd say

    Don't think I've ever heard any reasonably accomplished guitarist that sounded exactly like someone else

    I didn't find him all that impressive...

    Doing covers with the original track backing you isn't all that difficult... especially when you can hear Ed's guitar bleeding through the recording and filling gaps the kid missed.

    Any kid can learn all of Ed's tricks and techniques these days and become proficient at playing covers if they invest enough time. There's hundreds of Berklee graduates that can play Ed's stuff note for harmonic pinch to a tee without breaking a sweat...

    Have the kid put up an original composition of his own without a prerecorded backing track... then let's see what he's got.
