Acoustic performances in record stores

Postby HugoDisasters on Sat Oct 15, 2016 12:44 pm

Hey!
Found a video from their acoustic performance so I thought I'd make a thread to collect all upcoming videos & discussion of them here.

Holy shit! The acoustic version of Hell Song sounds fucking epic.

Sounds cool, although it seems it's getting to be a tendency for Deryck that acoustic version means tuned-down, slower version of the original one (like Blood In My Eyes, War, Breaking the Chain, now this). Whatever, I love every Hell Song version, at least it's something new, but the older, faster version is better I think.

Off: do you have to make new thread for every new video? As I mentioned in another topic before, this forum is so chaotic and hard to find any topics that not in front page. Don't need any new unnecessary topic, this also could have been posted in a general Sum 41 thread.

Sounds so good. For so many years I've wished these guys would do couple weeks of pre-production on acoustic album (containing old songs) and then mic everyone and just record it like that, live. That'd be so good.

I don't have to, but I'd prefer it with how things are now.
In my opinion, threads with hundreds of pages are chaotic and doesn't concentrate the subject enough. I could read comments about a reply someone did about something which could be offtopic to the actual discussion on page 26/30 when the thread is started about something else and so on..

I was there! They also performed "War", and I'll have that one up probably tomorrow. I'm still not done processing yesterday, haha.

i really wanted to unfortunately i was working up in Gravenhurst all summer and just got back a few days before the concert. i didnt have a chance to buy tickets right away and by the time I had a chance they were all sold out. Tried to buy them off people selling when i got home but those were all sold too. I saw them last time they came but really wanted to see them here.

This Version sounds very sleepy. They could've at least implemented a slower variation of the main riff, Tom is used to play normally at first.

I can say the same as before: acoustic version means slower, tuned-down version? I kinda like it, but an acoustic session where every song sound like this could be very depressing. :hehe: Still, I would have rather had this on the album as bonus, instead of War.

The acoustic Hell Song almost sounds like Breaking The Chain.

War is quite good, Hell Song and FMOD sound ok, but I'm not really impressed. I agree 100% with Iam The Ghost, you can actually break down any song to strumming the chords, fill it with a beat and alternate the melody to avoid too big intervals. And in the case of FMOD, the acoustic version totally lost the character of the original while not adding anything new or exciting to it. Dave seems so unchallenged in this one.

On a side note: nice to see Frank on the cajon, but it's not really an acoustic performance. Deryck uses at least a half-acoustic guitar (could possibly be even full-electric as the hollow body seems very flat to me) and it's ok for Cone to play with a pick, but I still don't get while he plays an E-Bass at those occasions (and that for the last 15 years). I mean, no one expects him to play a fretless double bass or a guitar (what many bassists do if there is only one guitar player around), but he could at least use an acoustic bass.

It’s like sounding really nice, having a good feel, that’s all about the guitar.
That’s what I care about. I’d rather be a better strummer than fuckin' jizz all over the fuckin' fretboard...

Guys have you checked out the performance uploaded by Rolling Stone? It's just splendid.

Nothing really new, but the rendition of war sounds quite good in this one, the sound of all the songs is fantastic as are the video shots. Look them up if you haven't already!
