    Default New version of "jump" played at press conference

    I made this observation a while back, that during the 2007 tour press conference when Van Halen entered they played what sounded like a studio version of jump (and most people i guess assumed it was THE studio version of jump). However, the press conference version is clearly in B, not C as in the album version. So what they played is most likely a recent studio recording of Jump.

    I think this is an interesting point as it demonstrates that VH have recently been in the studio at least for one song. Anyone else can speculate as to what else they've recorded in the studio - perhaps they've rerecorded a few other tunes too. But I think that's good news as it shows the band were in the studio together and came out alive without killing each other.

    There was a thread exactly about this very topic right after the press conference, but I can't remember what the general conclusion of it was.

    I guess that there is a chance that this recording comes from the '06 rehearsal sessions of which also came those new recordings of RWTD, Romeo delight and such that appeared at www.evhgear.com.

    Or maybe they rerecorded all the classics to release those on the planned bestof cd that was canned later on?

    I know it in C, I have no clue why someone would take that much time to put it in B, or C#. C sounds better, and is much easier.

    Could they have re-recorded some tunes 'cause Warner Bros. owns the rights to the recordings?... WB owns the recordings, but not the songs... right?

    As for it being in a different key.. no idea why.

    As groups get older, they almost always tune their songs down a 1/2 step or even a whole step.

    This is nothing new at all.

    While Dave can still sing, he's older. Playing it in B probably helps him out a bit.

    Yet they've been doing it in C#. I'm not talking about fret position on a detined guitar, I'm talking about the actual tone of C#.

    sounds to me like they just lowered the pitch on the original.

    it doesnt really matter why they changed they key... i'm just pointing out the fact that the version played at the press conference is not the original studio version, contrary to popular belief.

    ... hence probably a recent re-recording - a good sign that they've been in the studio together.

    I would guess it IS the orginal version, just slowed down or pitch changed.

    it's easy to change the pitch of keyboard part, this does not mean nor prove that they recorded something new in studio. it's just a pro tool track with some midi....
