Two really good takes here, I have never heard the song before either so it's interesting. I am going to have to mull this one over for a little while, strat, yours sounds mixed well but is really quiet so I had to crank everything up on my PC.
cool battle guys. Liked em both. i love tom morello's style. I liked em both a lot to be honest,, but as for voting,, i gave axe the edge here cause I liked his wammy solo that he did a bit more so. both are really cool renditions! wtg you 2!:icon_thum :rock: :rock:
I'm going to say that Axe was MUCH closer to the original, but, sorry axe ol' buddy, I'm going to go with Strat on this one, I like his solo breaks and he did the scratchy thingy. I know he didn't use that wah, and used a flanger instead (which I'm not too fond of), but I believe he deserves the credit on the solo work for this one!
For a very short period of time I played in a ratm cover band. We didnt have a sing tho, so I'm pretty used to hearing this sort of ratm-cover
Enough about me, time to vote!
You both did an awesome job on this, and it was great to hear a bit of ratm.
Axe's version was great, and the solo rocked, but I found strats version to be even more to my liking. More agressive and a more powerful tone did it for me.
Thanks for voting everybody! Keep them comming. Like Axe said, this tune was a pisser, but it was fun trying to find a way to put it all together with out the vocal. The thing that is cool about Tom Morello, from RATM is that he never does the obvious. I think both Axe and I did this tune with Toms playing in mind. However, I was leaning a little more towards Ace Freely (you don't here that too often).:lol:
