I just watched Aaron Lewis do an acoustic version of When Doves Cry and it was kind of country.  He does some amazing covers but with that range, I guess he could. 


Back in the day I did an acoustic version of Days Go By by Dirty Vegas, acoustic Times Like These, and an acoustic version of I Wanna Be Sedated.  Fun and not too difficult.



We used to do an acoustic version of Godzilla -- I think just to see if anyone noticed. Dirty Vegas, by the way, has their own acoustic version of Days Go By that I like so much better than the electric version. It's on my zumo.

Anyway, I'm jealous of all of you with a room. I only recently managed to carve out a corner.

Can we make this the official STO let's-talk-crap-about-playing-music thread? I think we need one.

Do you have link to this version. I love Dirty Vegas!

Amazon has it. Just search for "Days Go By (Acoustic)".

I just did, by the way, and it looks like they have several versions of it. Listening to the samples, I think they're all the same cut.

this is the version I used when learning it:

If a person's primary concern is increasing freedom, they should prepare for a reduction in average lifespan.  ---  Misanthropist

If you say "Gullible" real slow, it sounds like "Orange"

Best part of playing that song was watching people headscratch...  "Why do I know that song?"

I tried. I really did. I even skipped forward several times. It never moves out of "Emo Rock".

New free toy:
Fender's Riffstation Pro desktop version is now free -- because of a rights issue.

You can play any song you own through it (won't work with streaming or youtube) and it will give you the chords. I pumped a couple of things through it and it seemed to do a decent, if not perfect, job. It at least gives you a starting point. Looks like it will transpose too.

Here's a YouTube demo and review:

I downloaded it and have poked a bit at it. I'll need to go through the video and a couple of others to see how to make it work for me.

Thanks!

Note that I've downloaded ProTools and Reaper, both at recommendation. So more software to futz with :)

ProTools looks like the bomb. It will be awhile before I'm trying to record again, though.

New amp day!  Well, yesterday was new amp day. But today is when I'll be futzing with it.  Fender Mustang GT100. Found a barely used one for $100 off.

Cool. I’m gathering together mics and stands. I replaced the borked Pearl high hats with Sabian B8’s. Drummer likes them more. Looks like my Marshall might have blown a tube. Need to investigate. Meantime I have the Princeton.
