Remember that badass acoustic guitarist Sam Westphalen who did those sweet covers of Slayer and Megadeth? Well, he’s back with a cover of “Take The Time”, one of my personal favorite Dream Theater songs. Westphalen covers it with the same enthusiasm, percussive strength, and humor as before. Check out the cover and the original below.

“Take The Time” comes from Dream Theater’s 1992 album Images And Words. Snag it on iTunes.

      Andy McKee does some amazing stuff! I’ve been listening to him for a few years now and he is beyond talented.
