Well guys, I said I was going to do it and I finally did. Here is a first rough version of an acoustic cover of the new song. I only did one take of each guitar and vocal track, so there are a few minor mistakes. I just wanted to get something up. I'll do a more legitimate cover when the song is actually released, but for now I thought you guys might enjoy this. I have to sing like...2 octaves lower than Dexter, so hopefully you guys can adjust to that. Take a listen and let me know what you think. Thanks! :D

I'm going to put up a poll so you guys can rate it too if you wouldn't mind.

Alright man! I've also been covering this song, but haven't recorded it or anything. Could you send me a tab of what you play during the verse? Couldn't figure that out. And also the melody at the end of the song would be great.

Good cover. I also have a deep voice and it's hard to immitate Dexter's voice.

But I really liked it :D

It's a little difficult for me to tab what I play during the verse. I kind of just listen to the song and play along. It's kind of like just playing by feeling. I can tell you that I use open chords with the capo on the first fret in standard tuning. I use D, and variations of C and G chords. You just kind of have to listen to it and just feel it. I'm sure it could be properly tabbed out, but it seems a bit difficult to me to get it perfect right now without a proper recording.

Also, which melody are you talking about at the end of the song? If it's what I think you mean, it's the same lead part that Noodles plays during the chorus. Thanks for listening by the way :)

Well done, dude! It sounds really good acoustic.

I meant the melody you play at 3:56 in your recording.

I've got the whole song down with all the chords, just don't know exactly what notes to play in those melodies.

Free?

Well done. I sorta feel that during the main riff (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JyoYTPchz8)'s last quarter (where the filling stops) the guitar sound could be thicker. I'd rate it 4 because as Dan said your voice doesn't do all justice to the song, but all the efforts and putting the best you can definitely deserve 5. :)

Yess Well Done Big Fish!!!! :)

Could you post your tabs for this song???

Yeah, that's what Noodles plays during the chorus as well. It's actually really simple. Let me try to figure out how I can tab it out really quick and I'll post it up for you. I'll try to work on the rest of the song for everyone else as well.

Yeah, it was a little thicker, but with my recording setup I couldn't really find a good spot where it wasnt overly loud and sounding like buzzy. I had to lower the volumes of certain parts and that was one of the parts. I did play it with both tracks though, so that helped some. As I said, I plan on doing a more thorough cover of the song in the future, so that will be a bit better. :) Thanks again for the comments guys.

Remember, this is with a capo on the first fret.

This is what Noodles plays during the chorus and around the 4 minute mark you were asking about, Dan.

These are the chords used during the verse that you kind of have to mess around with and pick individually to get the sound Noodles plays. Dexter just straight up plays these chords during the verse as Noodles well...Noodles around with them haha.

These are the two lead parts during the song. I'll just put them in the same box and you can easily figure out where to play what :)

I think that's everything. Sorry if it looks a little sloppy, I'm not used to tabbing on a forum post lol. If I missed anything let me know. Hope you guys enjoy. By the way, I'm about 99.9% this is all exactly correct.

yes, you're quite right, but if you listen very careful to the song, even the studio video you can hear a second guitar in the final part of the riff.

Yeah there is a 2nd guitar, that's just Noodles playing the same thing as Dexter. As for these slides you have, they aren't in the song though. I'm not sure what you're hearing but I'm 100% positive they aren't there.

Get everything worked out and sounding good?

Yeah, I was actually playing with a capo before, and I was just using power chords. Much better this way, and now that I know how to play the melodies.

I would record something but my computer's audio recording sucks. Don't really have a good camera either.

Yeah, I dont have a camera at all. I just use my USB Samson C01U condenser microphone and the Audacity program.

It's pretty good for us only hearing the live version, and having no idea what the official lyrics are.
