    Default China Town intro, an old recording?

    A friend of mine stumbled on this the other day and sent it to me... I'm sorry if it's already been posted/discussed... I'm too lazy to go back through the various threads to look for it... If it hasn't been discussed, I guess if this dude actually did record this years ago, it could bring up a few questions. It does sound pretty similar to me. I'm not accusing anyone of ripping off someone else... It's just kinda eerie so I thought I'd throw it out there...



    I'm not gonna research this dude to see if he's full of shit or whatever. Someone else can do that for all I care... He does seem to gush over the new VH so I don't think he's gonna try to sue them or anything... Who the hell knows???

    Anyways, if this an old topic that has already been beaten to death, feel free to close this thread...

    Fuck this shit. It doesn't even sound that similar, it's just someone dropping between notes rather fast.

    As a teen I wrote something very similar to Top of the World in '88. Of course in retrospect I was likely channeling the Jump outro. I did that sort of thing a lot until I diversified and tried to find my own style.

    As for Mr. Phase's claims, Chinatown sounds like VH. His piece sounds vaguely like Chinatown but very like VH. If you're gonna do the tap-hammer-release thing in a derivative style chances are your notes will cross paths with the guy whose technique you're following.

    Now youtube kids are gonna say they wrote stuff before EVH, probably gonna say they invented tapping? Why don't they focus on writing good music, for once.
