Myles sounds great. Whoever produced this needs to do AB and solo records.

that was pretty bad especially compared to the original. I really like some elton john songs and this was not a good cover. It's like half the length. Vocals don't get to shine because slash comes in and completely takes over and drowns myles out for half the song. Myles doesn't get to hit the high notes he can hit because of that.

hope myles got paid well

Possibly a bit harsh considering it's just something they've contributed to a documentary? :peace

well if the intent was to do something lackluster then i guess they succeeded in their job. Like I said, hope myles got paid well. they probably need it because of the no concert thing due to covid. I do like how clean the sound is tho

Wow, that was over quickly. I did like the intro.

I've been learning to play the Elton version on guitar. On a guitar, most tabs put a capo at 3 for the G so that you can easily play all the weird suspended chords. I noticed here they opened with A flat which is a half step higher than the G used on the record. That lets them play from the open A position since they're tuned a half step down.

That gives you A7 and A6sus4 for the opening and verse:

Code: Select all

|-0--0-|
|-1--3-|
|-0--2-|
|-2--4-|
|-0--0-|
|------|
The prechorus would be: F C/E Dm Csus2 G/B G

Or iif simplified: F C Dm C G

Code: Select all

   F  C/E  Dm Cs2 G/B (G)
|--1---0---1------------------------|
|--1---1---3---1---0----------------|
|--2---0---2---0---0----------------|
|--3---2---0---0---0----------2/4/5-|
|--------------3---2---2/4/5--------|
|-----------------------------------|
The chords for the chorus would become:
C F
C F C
D
F C
F C

My understanding is there is a full version that was recorded. This is an edited down promo clip. At least that's what I gather from what was said on MyGNR forum.
