I'm not saying that - let's put it in clear language: you butchered the psycho riff.

Umm, I checked after recording, it's exactly like the tabs say, and not just one, but like 5 different... also, I know I goofed up the last one, but like said before, why would it have to be exactly like the recording?

The issue is you're mixing it in with the original recording, so you're clashing with that. Sounds like some parts you're struggling to play well. Not so much an issue of you not knowing the parts, but being rehearsed enough as a player to perform them confidently.

Just keep at it.

Tell me, why do the vids get praise in TB, but in here it's bad if it's not 100% like the record?

That doesn't mean a whole lot if the tabs aren't accurate. I'd trust what I actually hear, rather than the tabs.

Okay, you may be playing it perfectly, but you're just standing in front of the camera like a zombie. Where's the emotion? I don't care if there's some little mistakes in my own or some other's covers, as long as it actually seems you're enjoying the music rather than doing it as clean as you can. Just like bands, including Muse, when playing live, do they really care of some mistakes? It's just not the point in this kind of stuff imo.
See, that's the thing. I don't think people watch covers to SEE if someone is enjoying a certain band. If you're headbanging along to a song you like, then that's fair enough, but if you want to make a cover of it, other people are going to want to hear something close to the original as well.

I didnt mean to be rude with my comment, sorry if it was interprated in this way.

For me, thinking that if you don't headbang, you don't show emotion, is a bit simplist, Every one has his own feelings when we're playing.

I don't know. My first KoC piano cover got 38k views, 290 ups and 25 downs. I'm not happy with it anymore. The only reason I left it, is because it's linked from so many places.

I don't get satisfaction from seeing somebody headbanging, I get satisfaction from somebody playing the song well, showing how it's played, and sound adds to it.

Call me picky, overly critical, but I like seeing songs performed well. If that's a cover, play it well, change it entirely or work on it. This UNO cover is making it your own.

yeah that

Making it your own (provided it's done in a tasteful way ) is probably better than doing a straight up cover that's played exactly like the studio recording, as it shows more versatility and creativity I guess.

The few covers that I've done have been audio only. Why? There's not really anything to see, and I don't want people paying all their attention to the person playing, but rather WHAT'S being played.

Or something

I don't know. A lot of that stuff Muse does on stage is part of their act... look at them in this soundcheck for example. Not really moving around at all, yet they don't really sound any different.

Right, so to show you what I mean I did a quick cover of how I'd play The Handler now, and my conclusions (write yours down, see what I wrote in the hidden box to see if it matches).
Mind, I just recorded it for playing, no fx on purpose.



(for some reason the embed won't work: https://soundcloud.com/matthijsq/the-handler-bass-cover )


- timing isn't right everywhere - although I couldn't hear my playing while recording in my current setup. Bit rushed in the chorus.
- I need to work on my pick timing as it's not tight
- tune your bass properly before playing -_-


Now, had I put FX on that, it might have sounded more 'epic' but it would just muffle up my mistakes. I love recording clean takes to really get if my playing is okay.

Mercy Cover

Hi!

A while ago I decided to try and do a different take on Mercy. First time posting here (some great stuff posted by you guys in the thread!) so let's see how it goes

Lovely vocal harmonies and synth settings! Honestly more dynamic variation than the actual version

I did a quick piano rendition of New Born, if anyone wants to give it a listen I'd much appreciate it:



It's, er, a bit fast :P
