I made this cover in the end of November last year, and now that I have an UG account and I'm using it more, I figured I'd share it here.


When learning this song, I had a hard time trying to play it in standard EADGBE tuning. I found out that DADGAD (Celtic) tuning with a capo works perfectly for getting those big open chords to ring out and sustain fully.

Equipment used:
  • Lead/Clean Guitar - Fender 1982 Stratocaster
  • Rhythm Guitar - Ibanez S7420-BK
  • Bass Guitar - Hohner Jack Bass Custom V
  • Drums - Yamaha DTX450K
  • Microphones - sE Electronics sE2200a, AKG D310
  • Keyboard - Korg M1
  • Guitar Amplifier - Orbitek Prototype (My dad's homemade solid-state amplifier)
  • Bass Amplifier - Peavey Minx 110
