Bad Company by Five Finger Death Punch

Discussion in 'Tablature and Notation [BG]' started by nogoodwithnames, Dec 6, 2013.

  1. Hi, I was hoping someone might have a tab for Bad Company by ffdp. I need to learn this song fast and I just need a little direction. Can't tell exactly what the bass is doing just listening. Thanks

    Drunk people also could care less what you play on the bass.
    For this song, I know it uses the low B string a bunch and has three chords. Other than the Duh-Duh-DUHHHH part the rest doesn't matter on the F5DP version.
    Or get the back issue of GW, they had a tab for it.
  4. Good points, especially the drunk people not caring. :cool:

    Learn the original instead of that incredibly horrible cover. When I say incredibly horrible, I'm being nice.
  6. I really don't understand all the hate. Lol. Is it really THAT bad? Maybe I'm just not as critical as I should be.... :confused:

    Got it figured out thanks to a fellow tb'er

    It wouldn't be that bad if it were an original song- but when you change up an iconic song that is very well known, do it in a weird way like they did, many will hate it. ANd many already hate F5DP to begin with apparently.
    It would be like if I did a reggae version of Girls, Girls Girls, by Motley Crue... probably would be hated on... (then again maybe that isn't a bad idea...)
  8. You may be on to something. :D

    For a cool cover check out The Cult's version of Born to Be Wild off Electric.
    They did it their way and IMO it works well. I still like the original better but theirs is good as well.
