[GPG] 01/07/02 Face of the Earth by Days of the New

Post by Hanohtep »

Right. I pick "Face of the Earth" by Days of the New.

I checked the availability of both the tab and the MP3 and it's possible to get both.

Play as much or as little as you want. You have until Sunday the 7th so don't rush it too much :bg:

That's why I picked it ;)

I want to learn how to play it too and I figured it would take a bit of practice. :bg:

No worries IceBus. punky_munky kindly hosted it for me.

As for the tune, it is a great song from a great band.

Good choice there Hanohtep. I hadn't heard of Days of the new; it' good stuff.

Anyway, after finally getting the unusual time signature into my head, here is my version of the intro, minus the open strings bit.

Face of the Earth - Bigpops (270K)

Sorry it's early (by 6 days), but once I heard it, I had to learn it.

Pretty good there Bigpops. I've been practicing it and have finished recording it but I think I'm going to give it one more shot before posting it.

Nice one Bigpops. I'm gonna take up more of the time before I post mine - I want to learn this riff properly as it's really nice and I'd like to have it in my permanent arsenal.

I must admit, i did find it pretty tough. It's far away from my usual style.
But hey, thats what this place is for right?

I've just noticed that the tab is missing a couple of the variations of the riff, which are clearly heard on the original. The third bar is especially distinctive.

The tab I've got shows differences. The third bar has a note played on the second fret 2nd fret and the fourth bar has a third to fifth slide in it.

Same here Hano. Bigpops - Punky's tab is the one I'm using - he links to it earlier on in the thread...

As you say it's not my usual style either, and it really is refreshing to try some new styles and feels with my playing.

You're both right. It's me, I can't read. If I can be bothered, i'll record it again, but the altered tuning makes that unlikely, as i've tuned my guitar back up to normal tuning.

I know I'm finding the altered tuning a bit of a hassle when I want to pick my guitar up and noodle around with other pieces...

OK, I've re-recorded it wiht just drop D tuning this time. Also, having listened carefully to the original, I have altered the tab. I've taken away in-audible notes (i cant hear them anyway) and altered some bass notes in the first two bars. The first two should now sould exactly like the original. Anyway, enough chit chat, heres my version tabbed out:

Code: Select all

d---X----X--X--0---|------------------------------|
b---0----0--0--3---|------3-1h3----1---1-----1----|
g---0----0--0--2---|------2-0h2----0-----0---0----|
d---0----0--0--0---|----------------------------0-|
a---0----0--0--0---|----0------------3------------|
D---0----0--0--0---|--0----0-----0---------3------|
                                           

d-------------------------|---------------------|
b-----3-1h3---1---1---1---|---3-1h3--1--1---1---|
g-----2-0h2---0----0--0---|---2-0h2--0---2--0---|
d-----------------------0-|-------------------0-|
a---0---------------3-----|--0---------3---3----|
D-0----0----0----3--------|-0------0------------|
                   

d-------------------------|
b----3-1h3---1---1----1---|
g----2-0h2---0----0---0---|
d-----------------------0-|
a--0-----------3---3/5----|
D-0--------0--------------|
And heres my new mp3: Face of the Earth - Bigpops TAKE 2 (225K)

Recorded on my Squier strat, with acoustic simulator in the GT-6, using hybrid picking (pick and fingers).[/code]

Here's my preliminary attempt. It was a bit of an arse take, but I thought I'd just bung it up :)
