It's a tough note to hit, the band wanted to do it an octave down because they were worried about damaging their vocal chords (rumour has it that David Bryan did permanent damage to his throat because of this song, but i'm not sure if that's true). So just try it an octave down or leave your lead singer to do it, you don't wanna go flat half way through whatever you do.

^good advice. Or if you cant do it but your band are forcing you to do the backing vocals make sure you're totally acting confident and are controlling the stage,, look into peoples eyes move about a bit etc.

it's not impossible but you could try with falsetto but it would suck.

I suppose if my lead sung it and i falsetto'ed it, it wouldn't sound half bad... I'll give it a try....

For now, we do the whole song clean and sing it the acoustic way, its not bad, but the "real" way is pure amazing and will WOW any Crowd!

When Bon Jovi do it live, Sambora makes it look like nothing lol wish i was that talented...

I may consider the octave but way wouldnt sound as good, i may tune lower but then the main riff will sound way to low!

Sure as hell has a lot to envy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60iDOmUu_vo&feature=related - this is a pretty good style to do the song in if you go acoustic. Maybe miss out the percussion and the violin though.

yeah, thats exactly what we do, its great but not as great as the Electric version, doesnt get the crowd going as well... still very musical and crowd seems to like it... also we often get credit for changing the song into "our own" when we didnt lol
