I did a Van Halen cover
« on: November 18, 2020, 05:34:13 PM »
With the death of EVH, my old singer and I (the one from this thread: https://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=55672.0) decided to pay tribute to Van Halen with a cut from the first album, Feel Your Love Tonight. I managed to find a copy of Alex's actual original recorded drum track to play against. I found an isolated bass track, transcribed it to tab, learned it, then recorded all the guitars, bass guitar, and backing vocals, then sent it to him for vocals. It's not perfect and we're damn sure not EVH and DLR, but damn was this fun to do!

Bitchin.

So wait, we're spelling it wrong and king is spelling it right? What is going on here? :lol -- BlobVanDam

Coz, I thought that was excellent.  Loved the tone of the rhythm guitar (especially in the verses) and loved the solo.

Thanks everyone!

I love that tone also. It's a custom VH tone I downloaded from Line6's "Customtone" section of their site where users can upload their own tones they've created. Very cool.
