    Halestorm -LIVE- “I Like It Heavy” @Berlin March 25, 2015

    Not sure if I can pull this one off but it’s fun anyway.. (especially considering Lzzy Hale is a crazy good vocalist) Been working on it a couple months now, here’s my first 100% tempo practice track with drum machine.. cant quite figure out the vocal melody over the bridge parts yet..
    (vocals recorded separate from guitars and guitars recorded x 2, each in one take)


    Song stats:

    122 BPM
    B major
    Verse & chorus are same chord progression.
    Bridge has 2 variations in different progressions.
    No solo.
    The only fast riffs are in the bridge.

    Here’s my song chart.

    I haven’t heard all of you singing post but from what I remember about some of the first ones I listened too this is a great improvement. Keep at it 🙂

    thanks, just recently I noticed I no longer have to drown my vocals in reverb and chorus to keep the neighborhood dogs from howling. I still have a long way to go in order to sound decent. I’m also not sure how to make the guitar part of this song more interesting or big sounding, if I cover it live like this. Already used too much gain so it sounds like a tin can.

    Halestorm’s “rock anthem” type songs have fun lyrics and seem to be mostly easy guitar playing.

    They have a cool band formula. Release a cover album, then originals album, then a cover album, etc.

    There’s two halestorm songs I am learning including the one above. Originally I re-transcribed them and play them as standard tuning. They are actually in drop B. I was hoping to play them without retuning. I dont think I can manage it though, it just doesnt sound right and the riffs are really much harder in standard. I tried the same thing with Cinammon Girl, moving it to standard tuning instead of drop D, but it sounds kind of thin without the drop D and much harder to play and sing it live.

    These Halestorm songs got me wondering if it’s worth it to try to learn a song to perform in standard, vs. whatever original tuning. Re-tuning for 1 or 2 songs takes a good amount of time and hassle at an open mic considering a setlist performance is only 3 songs.
