I've been wanting to give this a go for a while - complete w/ the usual occasionally pitchy vocals and tempo issues - (tempo - see solo) 8)

ftr here are the positions I'm doing over the G-C part


----G--G/F#-G/E--G/D-C--G/B--Am--G

e|--3---3----3----3---0---3---0---
B|--3---3----3----3---1---0---1---
G|--4---4----0----0---0---0---2---
D|--5---4----2----0---2---0---2---
A|--5-----------------3---2---0---
E|-------------------------------3-

I may not be naming the shapes properly - but if you know me, you probably already know that.

Scale wise I play the notes for G ionian mostly although mixolydian sometimes - I like experimenting with that subtle difference - then the corresponding modes for G ionian for C, D and Am.

Cool Bill!
Any chance you feel like tabbing out that riff that goes from the D ---> back to the Verse?

Great job Bill. The voice works well on this tune. Outside the tempo issue, the lead is most excellent. Hard to do without any backing, I think if you had a band behind you and an electric it would be over the top.

Thanks ronster

Not to hijack my own thread but what the hell is up with the freakin blueshirts? So inconsistent yet they're still in the thick of it. They're pushing me to an all time record for screaming at the tv.

OK TJ - but it's the scale and not an actual one of the fills. if you d need that I'll do it - let me know.

The rangers have lost 2 or 3 in a row so maybe it's time for them to get their shit together - until they lose it again.

Hey cool with the riffs-I'll work something out.I love the riff live and electric-it leads back to the verse and is sweet;ya gotta put some notes there or it aint like Jerry.
Aint Hockey the best?
Rangers vs. Flyers is a great rivalry..
You guys beat us decent last week-maybe its payback time!
Have a nice weekend Bill-I'm heading home to catch the game-working sat blows my man.

Def an excellent rivalry - not to rub it in but the wifey and I will be watching on the xmas present we bought for ourselves - a 47" hdlcd - nothing like hockey in hd! That's probably a biased opinion! The wife is a bigger blueshirt fan than me!

A little story on topic:

My bro in law works w/Wacovia so a few years ago we all (wives included) head to philly for an overnighter and to catch the game in a wacovia lux box. I say "a" box because I'm assuming they got more than one - wacovia center and all - and quite a spread it was! Only problem was we got our butts handed to us like 6-0 or 6-1. We left with my bro in law chanting "1975" or whatever the last fly guys cup year was. Almost got in a brawl or two.

NICE JOB AGAIN BILL. Every time you do a video I am always inspired to pick the guitar up and play more than I do.

In regards to your signing, well, Jerry didn't get really good till 89', IMHO, so, maybe we all have a few years to improve....I still think you do a good job on the vocals....it's funny some songs i think i sound good on and some I just butcher but as my wife says i should stick to guitar only.

You're serious? Jerry's singing was best in like 77-80 JGB. But also listen to some old Comes A Times or China Doll or maybe Tomorrow is Forever from Dead Movie and tell me Jerry's singing wasnt good then.
