Don't Know What You Got (Til it's Gone)
Nashville player, Mike Pachelli takes a look at “Don’t Know What You Got” by Cinderella. Released in 1988, this song is off their 2nd Long Cold Winter album. It was their highest charting single, making it to number 12. Fronted by Tom Keifer on guitar, Cinderella hails from Clifton Heights, PA. In 1985,Jon Bon Jovi saw them playing in a club in Philadelphia and suggested his A&R man check them out. A record contract followed shortly with Mercury/Polygram Records.
Known for their glam band antics, “Don’t Know What You Got” was a highlight of Cinderella’s concerts, highly due to Tom Keifer being lowered to the stage playing piano on the song. 

Mike plays a Gibson USA Les Paul Classic in this lesson.

Mike Pachelli
    Mike Pachelli started playing guitar as a youngster in his hometown of Youngstown, Ohio. His earliest influence was Wes Montgomery who Mike says, "first opened my ears to the possibilities on guitar." Pachelli studied classical guitar at YSU and then moved to New York City to study bebop with guitar luminaries Joe Pass and Pat Martino. Mike's guitar style is an amalgamation of blues, jazz, rock, and neo-classical. He has a wealth of musical experience gained thru years of night clubs, concert halls, and recording studios. He's performed all over the U.S. and Europe with some of the most eclectic jazz, blues, pop and rock musicians including Brother Jack McDuff, Albert King, Les & Larry Elgart, Michael Sembello, Crystal Gayle, Barbara Mandrell, Jeanne Mas, Phil Keaggy, Frank Stallone (to name a few) and has done classical symphony concerts touring with Ferrante and Teicher.
