My cover: Jon Schmidt - All of Me

Here's my go at this song. Usually I go more cinematic, but this is a one take version; no editing trickery. Enjoy!

Does this song intentionally rip off "Fooling Yourself" by Styx, or was Jon Schmidt inspired by that song for "All of Me"?

Hmmmmm... Interesting find! Certainly sounds close doesn't it :) Doesn't say anything about it on the sheet music but it's possible. Maybe I'll ask him when he comes to Detroit in December.

The moment I heard the riff in your video, my mind went to the Styx song. So then I went to find the video by Schmidt to see if he played it the same way (wasn't doubting your skills! :wink: ) Prior to this thread, I'd never heard of the song. Pretty catchy tune!
