    Default BALANCE Question

    Don't know if this has been posted before, but I was wondering if anyone has heard that weird sound on Amsterdam. During the song it comes up twice I believe, and it sounds like a rough or something, I thought it was ed's dog sherman...any thoughts / ideas ???!

    At 4:11 a.m. you're able to hear everything.
    No, I've never noticed it in Amsterdam. I have in Baluchitherium.

    I know exactly what ur talking about! I have always wondered what that was too. I think it is Mikey's bass because I hear it in the live versions too. Kinda weird!!!

    That's what makes VH so great!

    What is the time during the song you're hearing this noise? I don't know of any "noises" on Amsterdam either. I'd be interested to hear what you're talking about.

    I just listened to it last night and didn't hear anything like that. Then again, I don't have the best ears. It's not the "ooooh" that comes twice after the solo is it?

    You'll first hear it at 0:54-0:55 in the song. That doesn't sound like Sherman to me but you never know.

    We're Canadian of course we're not crazy!

    there is no "extra" noises at that time mark. I'm gonna guess you're hearing little things that have to do with Ed's playing. The way he mutes his strings and does pick scrapes and such. There's alot of low D palm muting with the higher notes and such.

    I don't hear anything. Right after Sammy says "money" it's all Ed.

    Is there any way you can give all the times you think you're hearing it? I just listened to the whole song on a pretty decent stereo with some really good head phones and I'm just not hearing anything "extra" sounding besides Ed and his magical hands.

    I'm sorry but I don't think the noise is Ed. It sounds nothing like a guitar at all. If anything it is Mikey's base. The sound does come after Sam says "money" but that can not be Ed.

    1st time - 0:55 - Got a pocket full of money
    2nd time - 1:42 - Caught a plane outta Moscow

    I can almost guarantee that that noise I'm hearing is not a palm mute or pick scrape done by Ed, maybe by Mike but not by Ed. I thought it was just a glitch on my Balance cd when I first heard it a long time ago but then you can hear it on the Toronto PPV version of the song.
