WoW! Someone just gave me a heads up that some dude put a video of my band on Youtube. Thought that was pretty cool.

So if your board and feel like checking us out here you go http://youtube.com/watch?v=MNvGSdpxgOU

Peace,

Chris

It seems that the audio is clipping a little from the cam mic, not bad though. They had a sound person there which was nice. Everything was miced. Big, big sound on the mountain range. It was beautiful!

Congrats, Chris, that's a great clip!

Question are you doing the 80s-esque version with a bit of a transitional partial D chord between the E and A on the first two verse lines?

I am throwing the D in there. We've discussed it before about not doing it but I simply do it out of habit. I think it flows better, but that's me. What do you think?

IMO, I like to try to play different versions with my bands.

So when I hear a D I know it's and 80s version, no D 70s.

But even in the 70s the first solo definately plays off the 1 and 3 of the D major and lands there definitively at the exact spot you play the D.

Personally, I usually play it straight ahead E > A but I've been known to sneak it in for fun!

However, I do *love* the 80s build up like you guys do!

E > F#, then back to E, then E > F# > Abm

So most times I play it like a hybrid, E>A then the 80s build up!

I love doing that part of the jam. Wish we had keys so I wouldn't have to strum so much.

Isn't the jam really movin on an e major chord with a flatted 5th?

Bro, 100% agree on both counts. Love it and my band doesn't have keys yet either.
