I just found this cool cover of All Along the Watchtower. Played by Czech guitarist Lukás Halfar, while riding a skateboard through the city.

That's amazing! Funny that people in the background hardly notice him.


I was thinking the same thing!

Kid's got an interesting angle with the skateboard. Some guitar playing ability as well. I still prefer Jimi Hendrix covering Bob Dylan. Still the penultimate version.

Absolutely great cover pick. People forget how great a guitar player that Peter Green was. Everybody knows Santana is.

I read a lot of comments on youtube by deep-seated, die-hard, blues fans who know the Green version. A lot of them think that Santana went too far with his arrangement, doing Green a great injustice.

 

On the other hand, Santana plays it the way he would have written it, and I think that is why a lot of folks like me think that it's a Santana song. And of course, Santana had the hit that's still playing around the world.
