    Default Meanstreet covered by a fat man


    I think the title is pretty explainitory. I am posting this because I have been trying to find a video of somebody playing the intro correctly, and guess what, NOBODY can play it right. WTF is up with that?

    OK, but has anyone been abke to find a vid of someine doing the meanstreet intro right? The first part that ed jams to in some of the solo. Nobody has the rhythm right, butI think I do. I'm just trying to find someone who got it right.

    Actually it's not hard to play the intro correctly at all. Watch a couple videos of Ed back in the day and most of the tabs are correct.

    Nah, he wasn't playing it spot on, but being the huge fan of delay that I am I loved how that sounded! It was different.

    let make one thing more clear, I'm talking about the intro with the tapping stuff. I would have copyed a bunch of videos of people playing it wrong but i thought this was cool too. I know hes playing the intro his way in the vid I posted but thats not what I'm talking about in the 2nd part of my post, the fat guy doesnt even play the intro. Im talking about the first part of the song that sounds so impressive.

    Now that is some PHAT playing. He is ten times the player Ed is.
