If you know me, you know I’m a recovering prog-head. As much as I try to deny it, DT is part of my DNA and my musical make up unfortunately....
I was a Sophomore in high school and joined the marching band. After a rehearsal one random night, my friend Mathew Pike and I jumped into our friend John Rosini’s car as he put on “Caught In A Web” and “Erotomania” from DT’s Awake album. I can still remember every detail of those moments. What the interior of the car looked like. What the weather was like outside. It was yet another one of those moments in my life where I knew things would never be the same.
A couple weeks later, I was at the music store and saw the CD and bought it. I literally listened to it non-stop all weekend. This album not only got me into progressive rock but inspired me to get better as a guitar player.
Anyway - here's my poopy version of Erotomania that I learned when I was a teenager. Somehow I can still remember this complex song, but yet I can't remember a Steely Dan song I learned a couple hours ago.
