  1. A huge key to a good cover of this song is being both accurate & relentless with the picking part.
    That & still having either the vocal power or the right singers for the chorus!
    Thanks for posting this!

  2. Where’s the flair? This is like a sad depressing twist to a great song

  3. So are you going to make a video about boogie bass on the guitar sorry for asking.

  4. Steel Dragons-We all die young, please 🙁
