    Default New Sammy record: Lockdown sessions

    Out today!
    11 songs - 27 minutes, from the lockdown stuff he released all year.

    I think some medical research team might soon go to Sammy's house to look at his throat - just unbelievable anyone can sing like this at 73 years old!

    I think it's the first record on which you can hear Vic's playing without Sammy's. One word: solid.

    I ordered it on CD. I keep thinking that each new CD I buy will be the last but surprisingly, the format is still available on new releases.

    Good Enough is killer.
    Vic actually plays the main riff closer to what Edward did on "The Wild Life" score, instead of the way it was played on 5150. Slight differences in the two versions.

    I always thought the riff for Good Enough should have been lower like this and a little more raunchy.
    Right here I say....

    I'd like to know what the drummers here think of jason. I think he's ok, but not a huge fan. Mike had better chemistry with Chad Smith.

    Got mine at a record store just like the old days! Had to order it last week though lol! I still like doing that these days plus contributing to record stores. Can only do it with The Circle now though since VH is...well until posthumously at least.

    In the past 10 years outside ADKOT and TDLIC, I was able to find Chickenfoot III, Live: At Your Service, and Space Between at stores day of release. I can't remember if Sammy Hagar & Friends was one though so not sure if Sammy solo without Mike applies. Guess I'll find out about Dave solo soon, I doubt Extreme, but I'm optimistic about Mammoth WVH!

    Anyways, short songs as expected but awesome!

    Can you please give me a hint how it is played? The same Eagdbe fingering but tuned one step down? Or is it completely differrent?

    Gotta say that GE is my fav. VH song but mainly because of the licks not the riff. As I hate messing with the truss rod and weird tunings I just play it in standard without the low E(A in this case) string. Hell, I always Play ATBL in standard too (just like Ed in Hagar years). The standard tuning in Good Enough more or less works ( or is good enough) for the most of the song minus the third verse but I just repeat the first one or play the shortened version without the third verse. That said, the solo and the tapping outro are a must! I always play them. It is crazy that Vic didn't record them. They had the time to do it. Had Edward not came up with this outro, this song wouldn't have been my favorite.

    I like Jason as a drummer. Chad has a more funk style to him.

    Had Edward not come up, not came up...Blame it on autocorrect and Polish dictionary (or maybe Michael Anthony too).

    Glad they are releasing something, but this is underwhelming.

    I might simply buy "Funky Fung Shei" (sp?) and call it a day.

    Might be the first Sam release I haven't bought since he left VH.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I applaud them for the efforts.

    There is a blurb on Sammy's website that states the money will go to those suffering as a result of COVID. No real info beyond that, so I'm assuming it's restaurant workers and such. So it's worth it to support those folks.

    I finally figured out that I do have a download in my Amazon cue, despite Amazon saying I'll see the CD on the 19th. Ridiculous. Yes, I still buy CDs. They're physical so I have it, as opposed to downloadable vaporware which can disappear much easier than a CD.
