Cover - Suffocating Under Words of Sorrow - please CRIT!
Hi guys - it's been a while since I posted, but it's been a busy year so far.....anyway, this is a cover of "Suffocating Under Words of Sorrow" by Bullet for my Valentine. It's a rough mix that I just finished recording.
I used a backing track from Total Guitar Magazine - I added all guitar parts, including the 2nd guitar which is partially on the backing track.
This was a hard song for me because this is not a style of music I usually play - I never heard of the band until I read the magazine and heard the track, but thought the harmonized guitar parts were pretty cool.
For those that know the song, I did wimp out on the solo - can't do the tapping stuff, so I changed it.......
Any comments are welcome - advise on the playing, tone, mixing, etc. all appreciated...I used my Ibanez Artist going directly into a GT-6 and my computer using Sonar....
I can only say, VERY GOOD indeed.
As I donÂ´t know the original song I cant hear any flaws...
Tanglewood TW28STE (Shadow P7 EQ) acoustic
Yamaha RGX 320FZ electric guitar/Egnater Tweaker 15 amp.
Yamaha RBX 270 bass/Laney DB 150 amp.
whoo! I've just started getting into this band and thats a really cool cover! Very nicely played

On Ten Years Gone, what is that second chord you play right before the distorted riff? Right after the A...some kind of D I assume?
That's a diminished seventh chord. You could call it by any of the notes in it, but I think most folks would think of it as a Cdim7 or, in this case, Adim7. Very cool chord.
You're right, you're not the guy, you're the man! :D 8)
That rocked!! Too cool! 8) 8)
Hey, I listened to Ten Years Gone also, (one of my favorite songs), and I only have one complaint: it's too short! Good job there too. :D
I like your tone. I have a GT-6 also, but have to mic my amp, as I can't get my computer to record through the line in on my sound card.
Great job! Hope to hear more soon. :D

I've been playing that song with a D in that place and it never sounded quite right. Much better now, thanks.
Like dntalb said, you rocked that solo.
