Thank you! Yeah, I'll edit the description there. I thought it was him because of how the little fills sounded. Didn't know it would be a Firebird sound, tho.

Oh that is you in the vid? Nice job dude!  Wish we could jam on that tune right now haha

With the physical release and all the new merch and marketing for HardSkool now (including the time square ad) I’m definitely convinced now that they released Absurd first just to make HardSkool look better in the long run.

On the ITunes top songs chart it was at #8 on Friday and #1 on the rock list. It’s now at #27 on the main list and #2 on the rock list. 

Nice!

Yep, that's me. Thanks! :)
 

Haha, that would be nice. Maybe when I get to LA in November, if everything goes with the plan. 

I had no idea you were that guy! We exchanged comments on youtube regarding that HS backing track you used at first. Glad we got the official release now haha

So much bullshit. As if there aren't hundreds of other Guns guitar covers on YouTube the slide on by.

Yeah and I understand they felt I was doing something wrong when I posted Perhaps and HS rehearsal, but fuck, this one got released. There's tons of guitar covers of this song already.

Right? You search it up and there's hundreds of shitty reaction videos that immediately pop up that play the actual studio track but heaven forbid somebody does a guitar cover of it.

Here is my take.

Intro - Original version murders the new version. The build up and explosion into the first verse is epic.

Rhythm guitars - Original version. They were more aggressive and in your face.

Lead guitar/solos - New version. Neither are stellar imo, but Slash definitely did a better job than that forgettable thing that was in the original version.

Vocals - Obviously they're the same, so a wash. But I will say this: they fit in better with the track they were meant for. You can tell they were copy-and-pasted in the new version and it seems a little strange.

Drums - Original version. More aggressive, better mixed.

Overall, I say the original version was better sans the solo work. Wish Axl had just left it alone and let Slash do his soloing over that instead of what we got, but hey... it's nice to see the song finally come out in any iteration!

So it's A STORM WE LIVED IN, am I right? 

I don't hear any "s" - as in STORM IS LIFTIN' - remember the ever going feud that used to be here? Hey natives, say something.

I hear the same as in the demo. Now that the vocals are more clear sounding, I think it's maybe "a storm ain't liftin'" , but I definitely don't hear "we lived in".

Now in the live version it did sound like "we live(d) in".
