I would usually be the first one to talk shit about AB but I think you need to give them a break with this one - that was a little bit of a gimmick inviting Erock and Wolfgang on stage, nobody really took it seriously I guess. However, if the rest of that tour sounded this way - that's a completely different story....

I knew that Myles worked as a guitar teacher after MF4 but I did not know that this was due to his tinnitus. He also declined to join Velvet Revolver for that reason. On the one hand it's quite obvious that a job as musician can cause hearing damages, but on the other hand that topic is still quite worrying.

What I don't get is why their shows are still loud in spite of his tinnitus. I know I'm rehashing an old point but if my ears are ringing for 2 days after one AB show, I can only imagine what it's doing to their ears night after night on a tour. I know it's a little quieter on stage, but there has to be some impact from the loudness.

Quite interesting, especially because Wolfie seemed a little nervous. He messed up the intro and his overall timing was a little bit off.

I think one of the "big" TABN users was there.
I'm pretty sure Ryan, one of our mods, was there. I was not. I had some personal issues that needed to be taken care of that year in 2011 that prevented me from going to any shows that year.
I can vouch that Ryan was there. I was next to him.
Another photobucket casualty... :(

Fun fact of the day: The phrase "addicted to pain" appears in Creed's Wikipedia page. See if you can find it.

Why didn't 'New Way To Live' made the Album? I personally think this is the most underrated AB song ever because again, personally, I think is one of their best song they've made.

100% agreed. Maybe in terms of the sound and structure it resembled Blackbird too much and they decided to leave it off?

You do know that Ctrl + F exists, right?

Perfect random Alter Bridge post...

My dad tore his Achilles tendon on Wednesday night. Literally the next day we went to an open mic night at a bar nearby. (Not Pig Iron this time.) I offered to play Cry Of Achilles for him as a joke :yes

Can you actually play it? That intro in particular is fairly tricky! I can almost do it by picking the whole thing, though maintaining full speed is very hard. I'm slower if I try to play it using the mix of pick and finger plucks that Myles uses.

Yes I can! I do it only with finger plucks until the end. Here is a recording of me playing it (audio only):

It's a very fun song to play, very challenging. So you are doing thumb and finger plucks, while I would do all pick, and Myles mixes the pick with finger plucks. Very different sounds all around. Maybe I'll record the intro soon and post just for fun and comparison.

Oh god, doing it just with a pick sounds like my idea of hell :lol I find it really easy to do just fingerpicked, once you've got the pattern down it's just a matter of getting it well synced with the chords. But yeah, I'm not good at the hybrid picking either.

I had little time this but morning, but as promised... this is one take with about 30 seconds warm up, so it's a mess. Maybe I'll take my time and get a better vid next week.
