    Default Runaround Cover

    So in my short self imposed exile I recorded a few tunes that I haven't played much in a while because they are in standard tuning and I almost always have my guitar tuned down a half step. Its not that hard to re-tune, but sometimes with the Floyd you have to unclamp it if there's not enough play in the fine tuners and I don't like messing with it so I don't. Anyway, here's Runaround. No wah on the solo and I kind of improvised the pre-chorus because I don't really know it. But it was a fun recording and the vibe is there. I hope!

    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    One of my favorite Sammy era songs! It's so damned catchy!
    Nice vibe. I learned it (approximated it?) from the tab book.

    Perfect or not, you're having fun rockin' out. That's all that matters.

    I had no idea you left for a bit Show. Oops.

    Good job on this man, itís a fun song to play. It sounds though like a couple strings on your guitar may be out of tune. Maybe itís just the recording.

    I think the intonation on my guitar is slightly off because if I get the open chords in tune and then play a barre chord up the neck it sounds a little off.

    It's weird, I'll record something and listen back to it and it sounds fine through headphones and then "off" if I listen through speakers.
