    Default "Dirty Movies" - Cover

    I was bored the other day, and snowed in, so I decided to to do a cover of Dirty Movies by Van Halen. I played everything but the drums, which I took from a guitar pro, edited, and mixed a little. Given more time I would have just recorded them, but I don't have a good set up. Also, I suck at slide, so I just played it straight. But it is my favorite VH song. Also, it's really fun anytime I get to be Dave. So I hope you enjoy. I know it's not perfect or %100 accurate, but I'm happy with it.

    Side note: At the beginning I was actually just waiting to come in for the lead, and started fucking around making noise. I decided to keep this instead of try to reproduce accurately the guitar noise intro.

    Once you get past the intro that kicks ass.

    I am guessing you did the guitar part all in one take? I think if you do the intro separate and play with the levels it will come out better.

    But as I said, once you hit the main riff you were smoking.

    Also, one of the coolest bass lines in the VH catalog. The bass intro you play nuts on, but I think (please don't take this the wrong way, I sound like an "idea" guy) if you splice out the bass intro from the rest of the bass part and make the intro louder in the mix, it will sound better.

    If you listen to the original, the bass is pretty up front on the intro.

    No worries DD. I usually mix things with a little more care but I was trying new stuff. I'm gonna make the adjustments.
