I’ve had a blast digging into the vault and brushing off a few songs I was doing in my last cover band. ‘Little Sister’ was always a crowd favorite – short, sweet and to the point. Within the first 15 seconds of the song, you’re treated to a heavy dose of twang and a catchy guitar riff!

My YouTube cover has been viewed about a quarter of a million times to date. Since I can’t sing like Elvis, I let my guitar do the talkin’. Like I’ve done in many of my covers, I come up with a guitar part that mimics the melody and the phrasing of the lead vocal.
