Okay so; spent all morning on this.
Actually pretty happy with the turn out.

Link to Original Song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdDUfFBPi24

For anyone who doesn't know the song, Its Apache by Jerry Lordan
I'm writing a cover of the version The Shadows recorded in 1960. Don't really know
what genre to classify it yet, so at the moment the best description I can offer is just 'Core'. I promise there are no open breakdowns or binary riffs, I went all-out in terms of effort.

There is like, one or two more riff's I need to write and add in as of yet, but you'll get the gist.

Happy to critique back, just leave a link.

29-44 was pretty cool. Everything before it was a bit boring though. I may be a bit biased though because I didn't like the original song.

I hear you man.
Those bars were the entire reason I wrote the cover.
I don't participially like the original song either. Just that chorus riff
really blows me away.

Thanks heaps for checking it out!

Definitely an....interesting rendition of the original. I like to see such odd crossovers of genres from time to time.
Purple string dampener scrunchy.
